Been thinking bout you baby
And I don't know what to do
All I think about is you
Seems everything around me
Things I've never understood
They all make sense when I'm with you.

Oh, I've heard it all before
Finding so called love then you leave it behind
But now I feel so sure
I listen to my heart this time
So I lay it on the line

Chorus:

I know that what I've found is once in a lifetime
And I know there's no way out
Cause it's once in a lifetime

I've always been so lonely
No one there for me to hold
And every night was just so cold
Oh don't get me wrong I've been around
But I've resigned myself to thinking
Mine is just another story often told

Oh, I've heard it all before
Finding so called love then you leave it behind
But now I feel so sure
I listen to my heart this time
Put my heart before my mind

Chorus:

I know that what I've found is once in a lifetime
And I know there's no way out
Cause it's once in a lifetime

Coda:

It's not like I'm running out of time
I'm taking everything in stride
It's just I never thought I'd find
What would make me change my mind

Chorus:

I know that what I've found is once in a lifetime yeah yeah
And I know there's no way out
Cause it's once in a lifetime

Ohhhh... ohhhhh...

    Once upon a time, there is this someone who dedicated this song to me. He is such a sweet guy, he really made sure that i feel and know how important i am to him. But things changed. I realized that everything in life is really not permanent. But keep moving forward.

    Once in a lifetime means it only happened once no more second chance .. Like in love you will find your true love who can we called that "for keeps" that all we know that he/she the one that we all waited for.

    For me once in a lifetime is knowing someone whom you can't live without and whom you wanna be for the rest of your life! :))
