If I, I could be anyoneCould I, I be your only one?If I, I could be anythingCould I be the secret that you keepBreath that you breatheYour dreams while you sleep?
If you, if you could read my mindThen you, you'd know I crossed that lineI, I'd make you my ValentineI can't let you go but I knowThat this ring is there to remind
So let's re-enact that sceneFrom what's-his-name's one act playI'll be your heroAnd you'll be the one who got awayNow I'm chasing headlights back homeAnd you, you're sitting there on your ownWhen we were sippin' martinisI started believing I wouldn't be leaving alone
When I told you a joke and you laughedWhen I asked you to danceYou said there's no band, there's no radioI got up real slow, started singing real lowWhen I was melting in your arms I had to let go
If there was no tomorrowThere were no yesterdaysThe stolen moments we've borrowedWe wouldn't let slip away
So let's re-enact that sceneFrom what's-his-name's one act playI'll be your heroSo let's re-enact that sceneUntil our dying dayI'll be the heroAnd you can be the oneYeah, you could be the one that got away
