about

this was the first song glenn & i wrote together way back 2002. i remember seeing glenn @ a local club & he said come over & see the studio, have a coffee etc, & we sat down & wrote the basic arrangement & melody in about 1/2 an hour. this again is glenn's demo vocal.

lyrics

the one that got away
(bidmead/ buchanan)

write me a letter drop me a line
cause i don’t see you anymore
think i still love you but i could be lying
if there was some way i could know for sure

but it seems that every thought of you
i have tears me apart

you could be the one i left behind
you could be my reason love is blind
now there’s nothing more to say
if i could only find the words
to make you understand me when i say
you’re the one that got away

maybe i’ll call you maybe i won’t
or maybe i need to get a life
sometimes i miss you sometimes i don’t
and all of my dreams are black and white

but it seems that everything i want
can only lead to here

you could be the one i left behind
you could be my reason love is blind
now there’s nothing more to say
if i could only find the words
to make you understand me when i say
you’re the one that got away

i’d rather let you down than let you go
it’s better to have loved than not at all

you could be the one i left behind
you’re the only one still in my mind

you could be the one i left behind
you could be my reason love is blind
now there’s nothing more to say
if i could only find the words
to make you understand me when i say

you’re the one that got away
you’re the one that got away
