The One That Got Away

Album: It's About Time (2003)
  • 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
