"The One That Got Away" song overview :
“The One That Got Away” is the sixth single from the third “Teenage Dream” album that was released in the United States on August 24, 2010. This song shows a different side of Katy, the side that was not snown to us untill now in her past singles on this record and can`t hardly wait to be discovered.

Katty Perry relates about this single that: ”I think that everyone can relate to this song. I wrote this song about when you promise someone forever, but you end up not being able to follow through. It’s a bittersweet story – hopefully, the listener learns from hearing it and never has to say they had "The One that got away”


The One That Got Away lyrics

Katy Perry - The One That Got Away Lyrics

Summer after high school when we first met,
We'd make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th birthday, we got matching tattoos
Used to steal your parents' liquor and climb to the roof
Talk about our future like we had a clue
Never planned that one day, I'll be losing you...

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

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
Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown, singing the blues
It's time to face the music, I'm no longer your muse...

In another life, I would be your girl
We'd keep 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 that got away

All this money can't buy me a time machine, no
Can't replace you with a million rings, no
I should have told you what you meant to me, whoa
'Cause now I pay the price...

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

The one (the one)
The one (the one)
The one (the one)

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...
