The one who got away – music & lyrics by Jess Pillmore


 


The facts are fading as the memory sets


This is the part of this dance where you retrace all your steps.


Where was the moment where she slipped through your hands?


Fragments of images are more than you can stand.


 


She’ll always loom larger than any current love


She’ll lure you away with thoughts of what was


An old standard of hope and fear we play


The ballad of the one who got away.


 


You pray for a memory to pop up like a shiny gem


So many to stumble on… you’ve got a secret place store them


When you touch your lover, you can bring them out to play


You may see her lips move but you’ll hear the one that got away.


 


She’ll always loom larger than any current love


She’ll lure you away with thoughts of what was


 An old standard of hope and fear we play


 The ballad of the one who got away.


 


She’s held on a horizon of where you wish you went


 Such a costly adventure with money already spent


 She’s an illusion of perfection wafting higher & higher. 


 A sensual smoke with no hope of fire.


 


She’ll always loom larger than any current love


She’ll lure you away with thoughts of what was


An old standard of hope and fear we play


The ballad of the one who got away.


The ballad of the one who got away.
