The One Who Got Away

Cover art for The One Who Got Away, by Stoneygate

When I met you, sadness seemed a world away
Behind a wall of flowers and wedding vows
And dreams fulfilled…

When you took my hand and made a thousand promises,
It seemed like nothing could intrude upon our happiness…

It’s a funny old world –
Nothing works out how you think
Circumstances change the scene in a blink
And you find you’re looking back at yesterday…

I thought I saw a glimpse of you the other day
A trick of the light, out the corner of my eye, retreating
A trick of my mind, where you will always live on –
A little part of me, a part I can’t let go of quickly

It’s a funny old world, nothing works out how you think
And circumstances change the scene in a blink
And you find you’re looking back at yesterday…

It’s a funny old world, full of surprises you can’t escape
Where you least expect it, here comes a plot twist you’d rather erase
You are the one who got away and I’m left here

It’s a funny old world, full of surprises you can’t escape
Where you least expect it, here comes a plot twist you’d rather erase
You are the one who got away
the one who promised me he’d stay
That I’d do anything to save
The one who no-one can replace
You are the one who got away
And I’m left here…
