Girl Who Got Away
by Dido

Album: Girl Who Got Away (2013)
  • I wanna move with the seasons
    And go with the flow
    And take it easy and let stuff go

    I wanna sleep like a baby
    Rise with the sun
    And kick it all back and get nothing done

    I wanna make this day
    The longest day
    With a warmth that
    Delivers happiness

    If only for today
    I wanna be, the girl who got away
    The lover who really loved
    The dancer who danced
    To the last song

    Don't wanna take sides
    Don't wanna make sense
    Of pounds and pence

    I want to be alone
    I don't wanna hide
    Don't wanna be talked over
    Or walked upon

    I wanna think the heart
    Is bigger than the head
    Wanna follow you, but not be led

    If only for today
    I wanna be, the girl who got away
    The lover who really loved
    The dancer who danced
    To the last song

    I know what it's like
    To be passed over
    To go unnoticed
    To be clumsy get things wrong
    And I know what it's like
    To arrive too late
    To be told to leave
    To be walked upon

    If only for today
    I wanna be, the girl who got away
    The lover who really loved
    The dancer who danced
    To the last song

    If only for today
    I wanna be, the girl who got away
    The lover who really loved
    The dancer who danced
    To the last song Writer/s: DIDO ARMSTRONG, ROLLO ARMSTRONG
