After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful.

Lyrics:

Summer after high school when we first met
We make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th Birthday
We got matching tattoos Used to steal your parents’ liquor
And climb to the roof
Talk about our future
Like we had a clue
Never planned that one day
I’d be losing you In another life
I would be your girl
We keep all our promises
Be us against the world In another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away I was June and you were my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown singing the Blues
It’s time to face the music
I’m no longer your muse But in another life
I would be your girl
We keep all our promises
Be us against the world In another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The one that got away [Bridge:]
All this money can’t buy me a time machine (Nooooo)
Can’t replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)
I shoulda told you what you meant to me (Woooooow)
‘Cause now I pay the price In another life
I would be your girl
We keep all our promises
Be us against the world In another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3] In another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
