the one that got away


Strangers, half way around the world
that's what we are
Never did i imagine, it had gone this far
I was vulnerable, naive in that new found world
He was persistent, funny, true to his every word
We fought the battle that never was there
Tried to convince each other that it's good as reality
But the victory never came, even hearts were not spare
For us we had something special,
but for real it's insanity.
But i should have known better.
I never knew if he was true
I said i was vulnerable, and a bit gullible too
Years have passed, things have changed
Everythings going well, then boom! he's back again
We lived different lives, and moved on, so it seemed
But the connection, the spark, it's like a dream
We both know deep inside, just hidden
That feeling of ache and longing
But not today, not in the near future
We just can't and so i say
For this life, for him, i'm the one who got away.
