Not the One (Electric Baby, 2019)

I see you’re happy, I don’t feel a thing

Sure enough that girl will be your everything

I remember good times were had

Twenty-seven seems so young when looking back

All your baggage on the floor,

Trippin’ over meant that we were nothing more

Couldn’t settle with one foot out the door

 

You’re not the one who got away

This is what is meant to be and you were never a mistake

 

This December, you read my mind

Tried to sort through pieces of me you defined

Now I’m certain it wasn’t you

I had to go through all these things that we went through

Now I’m broken with nothing left to do

 

You’re not the one who got away

This is what is meant to be and you were never a mistake

 

It feels like time has never passed

Hate to be rejected, hate to expect

Anyone out there to understand

My need to express and to be holding your hand

This is my cry and this is my truth

I never meant to be hurtful to you

Always the one I needed to shake

But I knew I wouldn’t be the one saying your name

 

We’ve moved on and forgot the lies

Forgot the screams and silly cries that you despise

Always the one while I’m awake

You’re just the one who I needed to break

 

You’re not the one who got away

Nothing is forever and that’s ok

You’re not the one who got away

This is what is meant to be and you were never a mistake
