You remembered my name
and wrote your digits on my palm
but I ran nervous sweat
and these hands they regret
and now you're just a pen smudge on my arm

You'll wondered why I never called
because true love never waits to fall
it happens in an instant
comes crashing through your door
and makes you wonder what I'm waiting for

and maybe you moved on
but I don't want to write that song
because I saw the perfect dress for you
and a place where we could live
and a thousand other things that I could give

so I walk the streets
of the places that we met
looking for your face
or for a second chance
but all i find are couples and regrett

You found man and he's ok
you're getting older by the day
they'll put you out a pastour
so carpe diem
and with every kiss you move further away

But I always dressed may best
with every day like the rest
Waiting for a train
I didn't know had left
on a platform empty, with a hole in my chest

Now you've changed your name
cutting off the final vein
Like a number in a phone book
the calling cards aflame
and now you're just a tumour in my brain

Now there's nothing left
of what there used to be
Eleven digits wasted
lost somewhere in the fold
I'll drink a death, you get happy and grow old

because I never moved on
what good is second best
when she couldn't do the things you could
or at least that's what i'll say
because you'll always be the one that got away
you'll always be the one that got away
