He never thought he cared so much about the minute hand
Until he started praying for a second chance
If he could only do it all again
He'd trade the long nights that he spent behind his desk
For all he missed
He tells his wife "I wish that this moment in this room
Was not me dying but just spending a little time with you"

You only get just one time around
You only get on shot at this
One chance to find out the one thing that you don't wanna miss
One day when it's all said and done
I hope you see that it was enough
This one ride, one try, one life to love

She never thought she cared so much about those little hands
That held on tight the day she left 'till she was scared to death
Sitting all alone on a hotel bed, the end of the road
The sun has set on her big plans to feel young again
She picks up the phone, dials a number, hears that little voice
That's haunted every single mile since she made that choice

You only get just one time around
You only get on shot at this
One chance to find out the one thing that you don't wanna miss
One day when it's all said and done
I hope you see that it was enough
This one ride, one try, one life to love
