The One Who Got Away (Foster Jen)

Well, I saw you and I caught you And I reeled you into dry land And I cared for you and I cradled you And I nurtured you with my bare hands You were the one who got away Well, you spun around and you spiraled down And I faltered in trying to catch you And I bruised you, I had to throw you back To the water to try and forget you And the tide rushed in and took you away What could I do? What could I say? Doesn't even matter now anyway You were the one who got away And I know I let you go But you will always be the one? Well, I had you and I held you And I lost my chance, I failed you And I can't go back, no, I can't jump in I have no courage left to swim You were the one You were the one who got away You were the one, the one who got away You were the one, the one who got away You were the one, the one who got away got away, got away
