The One That Got Away
She was the light in my heart.
Her beauty was undeliverable,
She was a real angel to me.
Oh I wish I could've been with her,
For I couldn't, she was so beautiful.
We would talk but I could never ask her out,
I was afraid she would say no.
I was afraid I wasn't good enough for her,
Because she was so beautiful.
I sometimes wonder what would've happened,
If I was brave enough to ask.
For she is the one I judge all others;
She's the one who got away.
