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.
