The Man That Got Away lyrics

The night is bitter,
The stars have lost their glitter,
The winds grow colder,
And suddenly youre older
And all because of
The man that got away.

No more his eager call,
The writings on the wall,
The dreams you dreamed have all
Gone astray.
The man that won you
Has run off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen its final inning,
Dont know what happened
Its all a crazy game.

No more that all-time thrill
For youve been through the mill,
And never a new love will
Be the same.

Good riddance, good-bye.
Every trick of his youre on to -
But fools will be fools and wheres he gone to?

The road gets rougher,
Its lonelier and tougher.
With hope you burn up,
Tomorrow he may turn up.
Theres just no letup
The livelong night and day.

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

<interlude>

The road gets rougher,
Its lonelier and tougher.
With hope you burn up,
Tomorrow he may turn up.
Theres just no letup
The livelong night and day.

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

The man that got away . . .
