The One That Got Away Lyrics - Katy Perry

Review The Song (0)



Summer after high school
When we first met
We'd make out in your Mustang
To Radiohead
And on my 18th birthday
We got matching tattoos
Used to steal your parents' liquor
And climb to the roof
Talk about our future
Like we had a clue
Never planned that one day
I'd be losing you

In another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world
sponsored links
In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were
The one that got away
The one that got away

I was June and you were
My Johnny Cash
Never one without the other
We made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on
Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown
Singing the Blues
It's time to face the music
I'm no longer your muse

But in another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world
In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were
The one that got away
The one that got away

The one
The one
The one
The one that got away

All this money can't buy me
a time machine, no
Can't replace you with
a million rings, no
I should have told you
what you meant to me, whoa
'Cause now I pay the price

In another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world
In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were
The one that got away
The one that got away

The one (the one) x3

In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were
The one that got away
The one that got away
