"The Man That Got Away" lyrics - TRISHA YEARWOOD

"The 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 that eager call
The writing's on the wall
The dreams you've dreamed have all gone astray

The man that won you
Has run off and undone you
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning
Don't know what happened
It's all a crazy game
No more that old 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 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
The man that got away
