All at once,
I finally took a moment and I'm realizing that
You're not coming back
And it finally hit me all at once
All at once,
I started counting teardrops and at least a million fell
My eyes began to swell,
And all my dreams were shattered all at once

Chorus:
Ever since I met you
You're the only love I've known
And I can't forget you
Though I must face it all alone
All at once, I'm drifting on a lonely sea(notsee)
Wishing you'd come back to me
And that's all that matters now
All at once, I'm drifting on a lonely sea
Holding on to memories
And it hurts me more than you know
So much more than it shows
All at once

All at once,
I looked around and found that you were with another love
In someone else's arms,
And all my dreams were shattered, all at once
All at once
The smile that used to greet me brightened someone else's day
She took your smile away
And left me with just memories, all at once


Chorus


All at once im drifting on a lonely sea,
Wishing you'd come back to me,
And it hurts me more then you know,
So much more THAN it shows,
All at once

    It reminds me of my hs sweetheart. He walked out on me 3 times yet i'd give anything for him to come back again... He was my first love and my last. I'll never love anyone like him, if i ever find someone else to love again.

    From czarina katherine albacea

    This song really hurts me everytime i hear this playing on the radio. It makes me remind of my ex girlfriend named blanca. I gave everything to her and i sacrificed a lot of thing even my friends. And yet she broke me up telling me that we're not meant to be. And what hurts more, i found her with a guy named ron..
