A dreamy, jangly rumination on what could have been...but wasn't.

Lyrics

Pipe Dreams (The One Who Got Away)

Whatever happened to that young man?
His plan
His dreams and schemes
His great love?

In a parallel universe
In another life and time
You’ll find you and I
Leading very different lives

I wonder sometimes
What might have been
Between you and me
Maybe baby
We
Could have been
Something

Do you believe in destiny?
Or do you believe
You and me
Could only
Be a pipe dream?

Whatever happened to that young girl?
About to
Conquer the world
Had me in a whirl

An alternative ending
Where we are more than just friends
Is the one we get married
Live happily ever after

I wonder sometimes
What might have been
Between you and me
Maybe baby
We
Could have been
Something

Do you believe in destiny?
Or do you believe
You and me
Could only
Be a pipe dream?

Viewed objectively
Life comes in-between
In reality
Were we always a fantasy?

I wonder sometimes
What might have been
Between you and me
Maybe baby
We
Could have been
Something

Do you believe in destiny?
Or do you believe
You and me
Could only
Be a pipe dream?

Yeah, a pipe dream
Pipe dream
The one who got away
The one who got away
Was a pipe dream
A pipe dream

Yeah, a pipe dream
Pipe dream
The one who got away
The one who got away
Was a pipe dream
A pipe dream
