Oh [x2]
Oh woah, One life [x3]
One chance, two lips, free falling
We're about to lose our grip now
Five minutes too late
Can't be messing with fate
It's time to get loud
Cause we've been up
When we should've been sleeping
We've been down
When we could've been high
We'll come alive, tonight

Woah!
It's a great big world, and you'll see
It could pass you by at light speed
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live up
Woah!
If it's the last night in these streets
You'd be a fool to take a seat
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live it up
Oh, woah, One Life [x3]
Don't stop; don't stop live it up [x2]

Last thing you wanna make
Is your first mistake
But it's too late now
So get up, get ready
Not everybody's ready
Not offence to you anyhow

Cause we've been up when
When we should've been sleeping
We've been down
When we could've been high
We'll come alive, tonight
Woah!

It's a great big world, and you'll see
It could pass you by at light speed
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live up
Woah!
If it's the last night in these streets
You'd be a fool to take a seat
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live it up
Oh, woah, One Life [x3]
Don't stop; don't stop live it up [x2]

If you stop and think
You might start to sink
You can't get it
If you don't keep giving
Can't get it if you don't
Keep giving
Oh!

It's a great big world, and you'll see
It could pass you by at light speed
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live up
Woah!
If it's the last night in these streets
You'd be a fool to take a seat
You got one life, one life
Don't stop; don't stop live it up
Oh woah, One Life [x3]
Don't stop; don't stop live it up [x2]
Oh woah, one life [x3]
Don't stop; don't stop live it up [x2]

    Life is short... We only have one shot, dont ever regret if you missed it. So as long as you live... Grab all opportunities that come your way. ;-)

    One life is a tribute to life. This song means different specific things to every person, but the overall feeling and meaning of this song is that you only have one life, so make it the best you can. Don't think, just do what your heart tells you to do. There's so many things that you could've done, should've said, but you have to forget those and live in the now. Hedley is amazing and this song is so inspirational.

    Whenever your down, never forget that you only have one life and you shouldn't wreck it. You shouldn't have to look back when you are an adult and think ' i lived hating my life, i wasted my time'

    Same as the one above... If you dont live life to the fullest then you'll regret it. You have to live life with no regrets and live it right. Make the right choices in life, not the bad ones cuz the bad ones takes you no where, except jail... Lol

    You only have one life, and you need to slow down and actually live it. You gotta get up and enjoy it, take chances, have fun. And don't sit back, watching your life pass in front of your eyes, worthless. Live your lives like they were meant to be there.
