Lyrics

Sheena Easton

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 writing's on the wall
The dreams you dreamed
Have all gone astray

The man that won you
Has run off and undone you
That great beginning
Has seen a final inning
I don't know what happened
It's all a crazy game

No more that all-time thrill
'Cause 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
Lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow he may 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
