lyrics

I had it all,
But we all know that pride precedes the fall,
This is how the story goes,

We grew apart,
Instead of growing together,
All that talk about forever girl,
It shook me to the core,

I had my doubts,
I let them get the best of me,
And couldn't see this was worth fighting for,

Sadly now all ties are severed,
This one storm we could not weather,
And though it seems we've both moved on now girl,
I miss you more and more,

(Chorus)

I still remember girl when you were in my arms,
Thought I would always be the one you'd run to girl,
to keep you safe from harm,
Wish I'd have done enough to prove my love for you
and make you want to stay,
You are the one that got away,


These lessons I've learned and knowledge I've earned have
come a tad bit late,
A heart that's been spurned and bridge that's been burned
are all that takes it's place,
I thought that you'd always be waiting,
for me to see the light,
My failure to commit led to this last tearful goodbye,

Now that I'm looking back you truly were a dream,
Showed me a whole new world you were my everything,
Wish I'd have known back then how much you meant to me,
Then I'd have you here right now not just this song I sing,

(Musical Interlude)

(Chorus)

I still remember girl when you were in my arms,
Thought I would always be the one you'd run to girl,
to keep you safe from harm,
Wish I'd have done enough to prove my love for you
and make you want to stay,
You are the one that got away,

(Repeat)

about

Mykal Morrison West Palm Beach, Florida

Mykal Morrison is an artist based out of West Palm Beach, Florida. His sound is a pleasant departure from the effect laden, overly processed music that floods the airwaves. His first effort is the full length album titled "Elemental". A collection of songs that are remnant of a better time in music. A time when you could get an album, just push play, and let it ride. ... more
