The One That Go Away

by: Katy Perry

[E]
Summer after high school, when we first met,
     [G#m]
We’d make out in your Mustang to Radiohead.
    [C#m]
And on my eighteenth birthday
                   [A]
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.

Chorus:
                [E]
     In another life
                     [G#m]
     I would be your girl.
                       [C#m]
     We’d keep all our promises,
                       [A]
     Be us against the world.

                [E]
     In another life
                      [G#m]
     I would make you stay,
                        [C#m]
     So I don’t have to say
                                [A]
     You were the one that got away,
     The one that got away.

I was June and you were my 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.

Chorus:
     But in another life
     I would be your 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,
                        [E]
     The one that got away.

   [E      G#m      C#m      A]
     The one, the one, the one,
                        [B]
     The one that got away.

Bridge:
 [B                               C#m      F#m  B]
   All this money can’t buy me a time machine, no.
                            [C#m      F#m    B]
   Can’t replace you with a million rings, no.
                                   [C#m       F#m  B]
   I should have told you what you meant to me, whoa,
   ’Cause now I pay the price.

Chorus:
     In another life
     I would be your 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,
                       [E]
     The one that got away.

   [E      G#m      C#m      A]
     The one, the one, the one.

                [E]
     In another life
                      [G#m]
     I would make you stay,
                        [C#m]
     So I don’t have to say
                                [A]
     You were the one that got away,
                        [E]
     The one that got away.
