The Civil Wars - The One That Got Away

Verse:
Dm
I never meant to get us in this deep
A#
I never meant for this to mean a thing
Gm
Oh, I wish you were the one
F                 Am            Dm
Wish you were the one that got away

Verse:
Dm
I got caught up by the chase
A#
And you got high on every little bit
Gm
I wish you were the one
F                 Am            Dm
Wish you were the one that got away

Chorus:
Gm             Dm         Am
Oh, if I could go back in time
               F             Gm
When you only held me in my mind
        Dm             Am       F
Just a longing gone without a trace
Gm            Dm    Am             A#
Oh, I wish I never ever seen your face
  Gm
I wish you were the one
 F                Am            Dm
Wish you were the one that got away

Verse:
Dm
I miss the way you wanted me
A#
When I was staying just out of your reach
Gm
Begging for the slightest touch
F                 Am          Dm
Ooh, you couldn't get enough, mmm

Chorus:
Gm             Dm         Am
Oh, if I could go back in time
               F             Gm
When you only held me in my mind
        Dm             Am       F
Just a longing gone without a trace
Gm            Dm    Am             A#
Oh, I wish I never ever seen your face
  Gm
I wish you were the one
 F                Am            Dm
Wish you were the one that got away

Bridge:
Dm
Got away from me -x2-

For anybody has to breathe

Chorus:
Gm             Dm         Am
Oh, if I could go back in time
               F             Gm
When you only held me in my mind
        Dm             Am       F
Just a longing gone without a trace
Gm            Dm    Am             A#
Oh, I wish I never ever seen your face
  Gm
I wish you were the one
 F                Am            Dm
Wish you were the one that got away
