THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
Lyrics © 2021 Lawrence J. Studnicky

Verse 1
You got it in your head
Someone told her you’re dead
You call her on the phone
And find she’s not alone
Calling her to find out
Does she still cry out
Each time she hears your name
Been two years now
But in your tears how
You taste her burning flame

Chorus
She’s one of the ones that got away
But would she take you back today
She’s one of the ones that got away
But is she lost to yesterday
Can you get back to one of
The ones that got away

Verse 2
Remembering the nights
When you would hold her tight
You held her in your arms
And kept her from all harm
Now another lover
Pulls up the covers
As she whispers his name
Been three years now
It’s still unclear how
She keeps your heart aflame

Chorus
She’s one of the ones that got away
But would she take you back today
She’s one of the ones that got away
But is she lost to yesterday
Can you get back to one of
The ones that got away

Verse 3
Driving by her house
You see the toys outside
Laughter in the air
You find you’ve said a prayer
Praying she found something
That you’re still missing
Each morning you awake
Been four years now
And you still fear how
Her memory makes you shake

Chorus
She’s one of the ones that got away
But would you take her back today
She’s one of the ones that got away
But could your heart still make the play
Can you get back to one of
The ones that got away

About The High Plains Drifters

Six and a half hours north of Oslo, an intrepid traveler comes to the end of the road. Sure, it’s possible to go farther north than Trondheim and its dramatic fjord, but it’s fair to say that urban Norway ends at city limits. As you might expect from a city on the top of the world, Trondheim has its own peculiar style, architecture, rhythm, and light. (It’s also well known as the home of some of the world’s most beautiful people). This Scandinavian gem is the sort of place you’d go to find somebody — or, perhaps, to lose somebody. Lars Skaland’s radiant video for “The One That Got Away,” the glorious and lovelorn new single by American pop-rock band The High Plains Drifters, shows Trondheim at its most spectacular. It’s a place of magic, wonder, and loss, a city of beginnings and endings, and it’s the ideal setting for a video about a romantic experience so profound that it achieves a near-mystical quality.

About “The One That Got Away”

And that’s the thing about the High Plains Drifters. When they sing about love, they make every word and every note count. Theirs isn’t the sort of casual love that passes in a weekend — no, singer and lyricist Larry Studnicky writes about the sort of passion that turns the world inside out. High Plains Drifters songs will make you feel the rush of infatuation, the thrill of genuine togetherness, and the devastation of heartbreak, and often in the very same song. They match this explosive sentiment to music that reinforces the dangerous rapture of romance: irresistible melodies, pulse-quickening beats, and cinematic arrangements that set the scene and suit the epic emotions of the songs. “The One That Got Away” is a lament for a relationship lost; it’s wistful, gorgeous, danceable, infinitely replayable, and all too identifiable.

About the Video

In Skaland’s clip, that lost girl is played by the winsome Julie Louise Bjelke. If she looks right at home, there’s a good reason for that: she’s a Trondheim resident, and she’s got the healthy glow and physical fitness that the city’s residents are famous for. She leads us on a chase through the streets of town — over a bridge across a fjord, into the courtyard of the ancient churches and along streets lined with wooden buildings and choked with Nordic mist, and straight to the Downtown and its fancy restaurants and beautiful hotels. Sometimes the camera searches for her and can’t find her and sometimes she re-emerges with a laugh. She’s like a butterfly, floating just a bit out of reach, always fluttering, always teasing, always delightful, but always destined to fly free.
