Man That Got Away
The night is bitter.
The stars have lost their glitter.
The winds grow colder and suddenly you're older.
And all because of the man that got away.

No more his eager call.
The writing's on the wall.
Dreams have all gone astray.

The man that won you
Has run off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning.
I don't know what happened.
It's all a crazy game.

No more that old time thrill.
'Cause you've been through the mill.
And never a new love will be the same.

Good riddance, goodbye.
Every trick of his you're on to.
But fools will be fools and where's he gone to?

The road gets rougher.
It's lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow he may turn up.
There's just no let up
The live long night at day.

Ever since this world began
There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman lookin' for the man that got away.
The man that got away.
