The One That Got Away Lyrics - Pink

Review The Song (7)



Mmmm mm yeah
Oh oh
I stood by the exit door of the hotel cafe
He was playing with his band
I've always been a sucker had a weakness for a boy with a guitar and a drink in
his hand
His words were like heaven in my hurricane
My knees buckled under
I thought everyone was watching me
Watching you save my life with the song

You were mine
In the back of my mind
Oh just for one night
Just for a while

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you that slips away

Two weeks later I was sitting in his apartment
He was making cappuchino
I said what kind of man makes cappuchino
We laughed
We laughed
We laughed
We laughed til tears ran down my face

Oh but my man you're someone elses man
And that aint the man that I wanna want
But you keep drawing me in with those big brown lyin' eyes

You'll always be mine
In the back of my mind
Oh we had a night
Just a little while

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you that slips away

In a closed off corner of my heart yes
I'll always see your face
The one that got away
One that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh the one that got away
Yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah yeah
Oh

I'm not a victim of cliches
I don't believe in soul mates
Happy endings only one
Oh and I met you and all that changed
I had a taste and you're still sitting on the tip of my tongue

You were mine
Somewhere in time
I'll look for you first
In my next life

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you that slips away
Slips away
In a closed off corner of my heart yeah yeah yeah yeah
I I'll always see your face
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh the one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Yeah yeah
Oh oh yeah

Bummer...Have to let him get away | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/2/12

Never thought I'd go there but I did...fell for someone that belonged to another even though he continues to love me...circumstance prevents a full on relationship and I can't settle for seconds...or the lies. Met him 23 years ago with a guitar and a drink in his hand...ran into him 4 years ago and couldn't shake the connection we've always shared...As sure as I'm typing "he is the one that got away". How does one settle for "alright" when they had "near perfection" in so many ways...Even still...sometimes the right thing to do is to let him get away.


regret | Reviewer: Anna | 6/11/10

i let him get away, its been on and off for the longest time, and i gave him up so easily. i miss him every single day, i see her taking him down on all the same roads i could have.. and it kills me. i wish i never gave him up

my heart breaks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/8/09

I met a wonderful man years ago, but I didn't realize how much he meant to me. I'm now married with a family and he somehow found me online and we keep in touch through email once in awhile. He's also married, however, sometimes the past comes up and we find ourselves talking about how we felt and the regret of what could have been. My heart breaks, but circumstances are already as they are. The connection is still there, we can talk about anything and everything, but I know the right thing to do is end the communication, but I still can't.

Just as too | Reviewer: Pearla Laura | 9/8/09

I am in the same boat as all the people who have commented this post. It has been 8 painful months since I let the man I fell hardest for get away, I met him as he worked on my home, we had one night of pure heaven, incredible talking, beautiful kissing and somehow he did it, got away and still remains deeply impressed in my heart. He is the one person I compare every man too, and noone seems to fill the gap he did. No one is yet to come close to him, and this song expresses rather well everything I want to say. I still don't know if he has someone else, but that thought kills me. I guess everyone has one, the one that got away. I feel for you all, it's the most painful experience.

i let him get away | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/29/08

yeah, the same happened to me. met the guy of my dreams! he was definately the one...but i let him get away...it's been 6 months without him, and i know he was the one. i know it in my heart. I guess everyone has one that gets away. I'll always regret losing him. I'm 25 now it's going to be really hard to go on the rest of my life without him.

I can identify as well | Reviewer: Rachel Shaw | 8/28/08

8 years ago I was 18 and let the best thing that ever happened to me get away. I have been on a quest since that day to find someone to replace him and the love I had for him. 8 years later with another man and a baby, my heart still aches for my first true love. A part of me feels we were soulmates and destined to be together forever. It never happened.

Really connected with the lyrics...... | Reviewer: Ken Adams | 8/7/07

This same thing happened to me. I let the one, THE one, slip away. It's been six months and I can still remember every vivid detail. P!nk's song makes you want to laugh and feel happy and cry all at the same time.
