Ariana Grande – One Last Time lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was a liar, I gave into the fire
I know I should've fought it
At least I'm being honest
Feel like a failure cause I know that I failed you
I should've done you better cause you don't want a liar

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know
And I know she gives you everything, but boy I couldn't give it to you

And I know, and I know
And I know that you got everything but I got nothing here without you


[Chorus]
One last time I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time, I promise after that I'll let you go
Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
So One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Verse 2]
I don't deserve it, I know I don't deserve it
But stay with me a minute: I'll swear I'll make it worth it
Can't you forgive me, at least just temporarily?
I know that this is my fault, I should have been more careful


[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know
And I know she gives you everything, but boy I couldn't give it to you

And I know, and I know, and I know That you got everything
But I got nothing here without you


[Chorus]
So one last time I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time, I promise after that I'll let you go
Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
One last time I need to be the one who takes you home

[Bridge]
I know I should've fought it, At least I'm being honest
Just stay with me a minute: I swear I'll make it worth it
Cause I don't want to be without you


[Chorus]
So one last time I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time, I promise after that I'll let you go
Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
One last time I need to be the one who takes you home

[Outro]
One last time I need to be the one who takes you home

    The overall theme of this song would be "You don't miss someone till they move on without you". She messed up a relationship she wished she hadn't. She cheated on him and then says she doesn't deserve it. She knows the relationship is over and he has moved on. But on the other end she hasn't and she just wants him for a little more so she can show him how she has changed and that she won't do it again. She may even be a little jealous of the new girl that has him now because she gets to hold him and she gives him all her love.

    She messed up, she knows she did, but she just wants him to give her a chance before completing righting her off as someone bad. Its like that point in a relationship where you know its over, your in love with how you used to be in love with them, and maybe you still are, but not like your were before, not crazy in love. Its kind of like closure for a relationship. You just want one more thing.

    This is about a girl that wouldn't give it up to her boyfriend. So he got tired of dating a c*ckteaser and kicked her to the curb. Now she wants to do the nasty with him because he's moved on, got another chick, probably knocked up, and see if she can ruin that relationship.

    It is about asking for a goodbye s**.
    The first verse talks about how she was caught cheating and she admits it. The chorus asks for a goodbye s**, for the last time, she doesn't care whether the guy doesn't love her anymore, as long they do it one last time then she will let him go after.
    The second verse talks how she doesn't deserve it but she will make sure that it is worth it.
