Leo Sayer – Once In A While lyrics

Writers: Alan Tarney

I think of this most every night
How hard it is to get it all right
I'm looking here and I'm lookin' there
I see a heart broken
Pieces everywhere

Wouldn't you try and wouldn't you know
You try so hard still to let it all go
Too much trouble and too much pain
I think I'm gonna have that luck again

What'll I do if you walk away
What'll I do if you walk away
Well I haven't a chance
No I haven't a chance

Once in a while I get this feeling
Now and again I'm all in a daze
Time after time I ask myself this
Will you walk away
Once in a while I get this feeling

A crazy notion -- a careless thought
I start to worry and time gets short
We'll think of this my dear young one
The time to act has just begun
