Oompa Augustus - Lyrics

Summer after high school when we first met
We make-out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 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
I would be your boy
We 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

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

But in another life
I would be your boy
We 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

The one that got away

All this money can't buy me a time machine
Can't replace you with a million rings (No)
I shoulda told you what you meant to me (Whoa)
Cause now i pay the price

In another life
I would be your boy
We 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

In another life
(In another life)

So I don't have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
