THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY
GAINES / CONRAD
COLIN SMITH

LYRICS:


(VERSE)
AS I THINK ABOUT THE LIFE I'VE LED UP UNTIL NOW
AND ALL THE LOVE I'VE MADE ALONG THE WAY
THE ONE WHO'S HEART AND SOUL I'LL ALWAYS LONG FOR
IS THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY

(CHORUS)
I COULDN'T SEE WHO WAS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
I WAS SO BLIND TO SET HER FREE
BUT AS SHE CRIED AND WALKED AWAY
MY VISION CLEARED TO SEE THE DAY
WHEN I'D WANT HER BACK
BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY

(VERSE)
MY HEAD WAS TURNED SO MANY TIMES  I LOOKED RIGHT PAST HER
I KNEW THAT OTHER LOVE WOULD COME TO PLAY
NOW ALL OF MY TODAYS ARE GONE AND SHE IS FOR SURE
THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY

(CHORUS)
I COULDN'T SEE  WHO WAS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
I WAS SO BLIND TO SET HER FREE
BUT AS SHE CRIED AND WALKED AWAY
MY VISION CLEARED TO SEE THE DAY
WHEN I'D WANT HER BACK
BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY

(BRIDGE)
LATELY I'M JUST MOPIN' THROUGH THE PARK
HOPIN' IN THE DARK WITHOUT HER
IT'S NO CRIME TO JUST GIVE UP AND STAY
HOME EVERY DAY AND THINK ABOUT HER
NOW IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY TIME I TRY
I CAN'T GET OFF THE DIME I JUST MISS
HOW CAN DREAMS LIKE EVERY GLASS OF WINE
END BEFORE THEIR TIME I MISS HER KISS

(CHORUS)
I COULDN'T SEE WHO WAS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
I WAS SO BLIND TO SET HER FREE
BUT AS SHE CRIED AND WALKED AWAY
MY VISION CLEARED TO SEE THE DAY
WHEN I'D WANT HER BACK
BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY
