    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
