The Man That Got Away - Martine McCutcheon

The night is bitter

The stars have lost glittertheir

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

The dreams you dreamed have all

gone astray.

The man that won you
Has gone off you.and undone

That great beginning

Has seen the final inning.

Don't know what happened. It's all a crazy game!

No more that all time thrill

For 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 and day.

Ever since this world began

There is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman looking for
The man that got away...

The man that got away
