The Man That Got Away Lyrics

Artist: Rufus Wainwright
Album: Rufus Does Judy At Carnegie Hall

The night is bitter, the stars have lost their glitter
The winds grow colder, suddenly you're older
And all because of the man that got away

No more his eager call, the writings on the wall
The dreams you've dreamed have all gone astray

The man that won you has run off and undone you
That great beginning has seen a final inning
Don't know what happened, it's all a crazy game

No more that all-time thrill, for you've been through the mill
And never a new love will be the same

Good riddance, goodbye
Every trick of his you're on to
But fools will be fools, and where's he gone to?

The road gets rougher, it's lonelier and tougher
With hope you'll burn up, tomorrow he might turn up
There's just no letup, the livelong night and day

Ever since this world began, there is nothing sadder than
A one-man woman, looking for the man that got away
The man that got away
