THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY © D Martin. Sept 2010-09-07    [ Revised Jan’2013]

Even now it’s on your mind ‘though you say it isn’t so

Even though you think you’re free, there’s places you can’t go.

It’s still there, under your skin

Don’t go there, no one can win

CH. You’re hanging on like a drowning man

      She’s got you trapped because she can

You’re holding tight-[ because]- You’re still afraid.

You let her go without a fight

The one you dream of every night

The one you think of every day-the one who got away.

The jewelled chalice holds no wine, there’s poison you can’t taste.

Just one sip will set you back, to a dark and desperate place

She’s still there, deep in your heart

If you go there, it’ll tear you apart

She pulls the string to watch you dance

But don’t believe you stand a chance-you won’t get close-[ you know]-She’ll make you pay

You let her go without a fight

The one you dream of every night, the one you think of every day- the One- Who got Away 

M.8………………..

(If she calls you)  She doesn’t call because she cares

(Don’t answer) It’s just because she knows you’re there

(She’ll hurt you)  She jerks your chain(She cuts you deep)

(She will) [ Because] She knows you’ll play

You let her go without a fight, the one you dream of every night,

The one you think of every day- the One who got away.

{Alt lyrics}You make believe the fairytale off how it could have been

A glass illusion,see right through( there’s) too much time between

And then the calls you read too deep, you think it’s ‘cos she cares,

Between the lines you’ve gotta see, it’s cos she knows you’re there.

She’s got you- under her thumb

Forget her, she can’t be the one
