I was foolish once
And I let my once get away.

I was happy once
You'd never believe it today
Eyes got careless once
All that was you got away.

Life has beauty once
It's not worth living today
I slipped out once
All that was you slipped away.

All great regret
Like the flavor of wine
Only grows deeper
With the passing of time.

Life had meaning once
It's cold and empty today
I was foolish once
I let my once get away.

I let my once get away...
