Song Description

The one that got away :(

Story Behind the Song

Originally conceived in 1988 as a collaboration between lyricist Barbara Leaman and Bobby Sahlen, it has been updated over the years. This final version is from TMC (Transcontinental Music Conspiracy) and produced by Martin Young.


You're the one I can't forget from half a life ago
You're the memory I still see when lights are turned down low
I know my heart won't let it rest
you were the first, the last, the best
I didn't know that I'd been blessesd
Half a life ago

Half a life ago is such a long time
Yet it only seems like yesterday
But half a life ago was just the wrong time
For commitments that I'd love to keep today
I'll never get a second chance at happiness I know
Beause you found another love half a life ago

I see you in old photographs from half a life ago
I see your face in every crowd no matter where i go
I image of you haunts me still
And I guess it always will
'Cause you're the one I can't forget
From half a life ago
