Katy Perry

The One That Got Away

Lyrics

playSummer after high school when we first met
playWe make-out in your Mustang to Radiohead
playAnd on my 18th Birthday
playWe got matching tattoos

playUsed to steal your parents' liquor
playAnd climb to the roof
playTalk about our future
playLike we had a clue
playNever planned that one day
playI'd be losing you

playIn another life
playI would be your girl
playWe keep all our promises
playBe us against the world

playIn another life
playI would make you stay
playSo I don't have to say
playYou were the one that got away
playThe one that got away

playI was June and you were my Johnny Cash
playNever one without the other We made a pact
playSometimes when I miss you
playI put those records on (whoa)

playSomeone said you had your tattoo removed
playSaw you downtown singing the Blues
playIt's time to face the music
playI'm no longer your muse

playIn another life
playI would be your girl
playWe keep all our promises
playBe us against the world
playIn another life
playI would make you stay

playSo I don't have to say
playYou were the one that got away
playThe one that got away
playThe one, the one, the one
playThe one that got away

playAll this money can't buy me a time machine (No)
playCan't replace you with a million rings (No)
playI should told you what you meant to me (Whoa)
playCause now i pay the price

playIn another life
playI would be your girl
playWe keep all our promises
playBe us against the world

playIn another life
playI would make you stay
playSo I don't have to say
playYou were the one that got away
playThe one that got away
playThe one, the one, the one

playIn another life
playI would make you stay
playSo I don't have to say
playYou were the one that got away
playThe one that got away
