Once in a while
Someone comes along
That one in a million heart
So pure and so strong
They can face up to the tears
And somehow still find a smile
We only get it
Every once in a while

Once in while
Someone has the eyes
That one in a million look
That never tells lies.
They can take get you on your feet
To walk that extra mile
We only see it
Every once in a while

That's why we call them heroes
That's why we know their names
And once you've heard their stories
You're never quite the same

That's why we call them heroes
The best thing they ever do
Is point to the best in us all
And say, "If I can, you can too."

Once in a while
I still hear his voice
That one in a million sound
Like two laughin' boys
He would hate it if we cried
That never was his style
Oh, we still miss him
Every once in a while

Oh, they can face up to the tears
And somehow still find a smile
But we only get it
Every once in a while

Oh, how I miss him
Every once in a while
