Summer after high school when we first met We make out in my Mustang to Radiohead And on your 18th Birthday We got matching tattoos Used to steal your parents' liquor And climb to the roof Talk about our future Like we had a clue Never planned that one day I'd be losing you In another life You would be my girl We'd keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say you were the one that got away The one that got away You was June and I was your Johnny Cash Never one without the other we made a pact Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on (Whoa) Someone said you had your tattoo removed Saw you downtown singing the Blues It's time to face the music I'm no longer your muse In another life You would be my girl We'd keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say you were the one that got away The one that got away All this money can't buy me a time machine (Nooooo) Can't replace you with a million rings (Nooooo) I should've told you what you meant to me (Whoa) 'Cause now I pay the price In another life You would be my girl We'd keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say you were the one that got away The one that got away

You're insecure, Don't know what for, You're turning heads when you walk through the door, Don't need make-up, To cover up, Being the way that you are is enough, Everyone else in the room can see it, Everyone else but you, Baby you light up my world like nobody else, The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed, But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell, You don't know, Oh oh, You don't know you're beautiful, thats whats makes you beautiful So come on, You got it wrong, To prove I'm right, I put it in a song, I don't know why, You're being shy, And turn away when I look into your eye eye eyes, Everyone else in the room can see it, Everyone else but you, Baby you light up my world like nobody else, The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed, But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell, You don't know, You don't know you're beautiful, thats whats makes you beautiful Shut the door Turn the light off I wanna be with you I wanna feel your love I wanna lay beside you I cannot hide this Even though I try Heart beats harder Time escapes me Trembling hands Touch skin It makes this harder And the tears stream down my face If we could only have this life For one more day If we could only turn back time You know I’ll be Your life Your voice Your reason to be My love My heart Is breathing for this Moment In time I’ll find the words to say Oh baby you'll know I'll be You know I’ll be Your life Your voice Your reason to be My love My heart Is breathing for this Moment In time I’ll find the words to say Before you leave me today...

Baby since the day you came into my life You made me realize that we were born to fly You showed me everyday new possibilities You proved my fantasies of love could really be Let's go to a place only lovers go To a spot that we've never known To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah Ooh this feels so crazy Oh this love is blazing Baby we're so high Walking on cloud 9 (You've got me up so high) So high (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high (You've got me up so high) Oh (My shoes are scraping the sky) Maybe later we can go up to the moon Or sail among the stars before the night is through And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far And we can't get much closer to God than where we are We'll go to a place only lovers go To a spot that we've never known To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah Ooh this feels so crazy Oh this love is blazing Baby we're so high Walking on cloud 9 (You've got me up so high) So high (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high (You've got me up so high) Oh (My shoes are scraping the sky) Ooh...yeah Ooh...oh hey Ooh this feels so crazy Oh this love is blazin' Baby we're so high Walking on cloud 9 You got me up so high You got me up so high You got me up so high My shoes are scraping the sky You got me up so high You got me up so high You got me up so high My shoes are scraping the sky ooh...ooh... Yeah... This is how love's supposed to be This is how, this is how love's supposed to be, yeah So high..

I'm at a payphone trying to call home All of my change I spent on you Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember, The people we used to be... It's even harder to picture, That you're not here next to me. You say it's too late to make it, But is it too late to try? And in our time that you wasted All of our bridges burned down I've wasted my nights, You turned out the lights Now I'm paralyzed, Still stuck in that time, When we called it love, But even the sun sets in paradise I'm at a payphone trying to call home All of my change I spent on you Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong Where are the plans we made for two? If "Happy Ever After" did exist, I would still be holding you like this All those fairy tales are full of it. One more stupid love song, I'll be sick Oh, you turned your back on tomorrow 'Cause you forgot yesterday. I gave you my love to borrow, But you just gave it away. You can't expect me to be fine, I don't expect you to care I know I've said it before, But all of our bridges burned down I've wasted my nights, You turned out the lights Now I'm paralyzed, Still stuck in that time, When we called it love, But even the sun sets in paradise I'm at a payphone trying to call home All of my change I spent on you Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong Where are the plans we made for two? If "Happy Ever After" did exist, I would still be holding you like this All those fairy tales are full of it. One more stupid love song, I'll be sick I'm at a payphone

You shout it out, But I can't hear a word you say I'm talking loud not saying much I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet You shoot me down, but I get up I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose Fire away, fire away Ricochet, you take your aim Fire away, fire away You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium Cut me down But it's you who'll have further to fall Ghost town and haunted love Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones I'm talking loud not saying much I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose Fire away, fire away Ricochet, you take your aim Fire away, fire away You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium Stone-hard, machine gun Fired at the ones who run Stone-hard as bulletproof glass I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose Fire away, fire away Ricochet, you take your aim Fire away, fire away I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose Fire away, fire away You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium You shoot me down but I won't fall I am titanium
