B. Reith – For Once In My Life lyrics

Why we tryin to live like (live like)
There's no consequences (quences)
They tell us how to live right (live right)
We get all defensive (fensive)
That's not the way that life works (life works)
Sorry to bust your bubble (bubble)
Every day that we don't change just leads to more n more trouble, yeah
I'm not lookin for a cop-out, lookin for excuses
I've made those for my whole life
I'm ready for a change, (ready for a change) yeah I'm really ready for a
Change

Don't know about you I made up my mind
I ain't playin games, we runnin out of time
We made such a mess already, this ain't the best I can be
So you can keep playin I ain't got the patience
We ain't little kids no more, no more
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)

For once in my life, I'm a good being passive (passive)
Lookin for shortcuts and fast lanes
I'm a do whatever it takes even if it hurts me even if it breaks me
Tired of livin my life half-hearted never finishin what I started
These dreams that I've disregarded, time to grab hold again
I'm not lookin for a cop-out, lookin for excuses
Made those my whole life
Oh I'm ready for a change, oh I'm ready for a change

Don't know about you I made up my mind
I ain't playin games, we runnin out of time
We made such a mess already, this ain't the best I can be
So you can keep playin I ain't got the patience
We ain't little kids no more, no more
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)

For once in my life, my life my life my life
For once in my life, my life my life yeah

When my life is over, I don't wanna look back and say
Oh, that I held it all back (held it all back) and I got nothin to show for

It no
I'll let it all go now so it all doesn't go to waste
For once in my life I decided I'm ready for a change

I, don't know about you I made up my mind
I ain't playin games, we runnin out of time
Made such a mess already, and this ain't the best I can be
So you can keep playin I ain't got the patience
We ain't little kids no more, no more
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)
I'm a gonna do the right thing, say (do the right thing)

Don't know about you, I made up my mind
I ain't playin games, runnin out of time
I'm a do the right thing, do the right thing
Do the right thing, do the right thing
You can keep playin I ain't got the patience
We ain't little kids no more
I'm a do the right thing, do the right thing
Do the right thing, do the right thing

For once in my life, my life my life my life
For once in my life, my life my life... My life
