Mark Erelli – Once lyrics

I turned 33 in a Canada and wasn't even carded
Drinking to the newly born and souls of the departed
Oh my Jesus you be damned it feels like I'm just getting started

The older I become I see it's all related
The pleasures they get simpler and the troubles more complicated

But I don't ask for all that much long as I don't have to fake it
Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce
Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce

You raised the walls around my heart I never knew were there
The unexpected answer to some unintended prayer
And I've done nothing to deserve it is a cross that I will
Gladly bear

Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce
Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce

Why do we keep living looking for an answer from above
Look at all we've been given and tell me it isn't enough
Shouldn't this be enough

Oh 1 and 1 make 2 and now the 2 make 3
I wanna show you all I know but somehow you're teaching me
It takes everything I've got to just sit back and let it be
Oh to just sit back and let it...

Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce
Everyone should know this kind of love once in a lifetime ooonce
Oooooonce
Ooooooonce
Ooooonce
Ah ya la da da da da da duh
