"The One That Got Away" as written by Kenny Loggins and Richard Marx....
You were the quiet one
Afraid to sleep alone
Heaven knows, I was lonely too
Some things in life a man
Can't learn to live without
One of those things was you

Who the good guys are
Who the bad guys are
Isn't always clear
In this world of separate houses
Someone's always missing someone
Day after day
And year after year

Though you and I are distant
Don't ever think I didn't want you
Or miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
For the day that you've forgiven me
My son
The One That Got Away

It's all of the little things
That add up to a life
'N it's been so hard
Being outside looking in
You had hundreds of first times
I didn't get to see
That will never come again

How do we catch up
Is there just too much
Stolen history
In this world of separate houses
I want you to remember
That you'll always be
Inside of me

Though you and I are distant
Don't ever think I didn't want you
Or miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
For the day that you've forgiven me
My son
The One That Got Away

You're carryin' an anger
That does not belong to you
'N I'm sick and tired of doin' time
For a crime I didn't do

I miss you every day
No matter where life takes you
Know that I'll still be waiting patiently
'Cause I do believe in you and me
And I trust that someday
You'll no longer be
The One That Got Away
