[Verse 1]
Summer after high school when we first met
We make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th birthday we got matching tattoos

Used to steal your parent's liquor and climb to the roof
Talked about our future like we had a clue
Never planned that one day I'd be losing you


[Chorus]
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


[Verse 2]
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... whoa
Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you down town singin' the blues
It's time to face the music; I'm no longer your muse


[Chorus]

But in another life I would be your girl
We 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
The one that got away

[Bridge]
All his money can't buy me a time machine, no
Can't replace you with a million rings, no
I shoulda told you what you meant to me, whoa
Cause now I pay the price


[Chorus]
In another life I would be your girl
We 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


[Bridge]
The one, the one, the one

[Outro]
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
