Whitney Houston – All At Once lyrics

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

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


All at once I'm 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

    This song is about true heartbreak. Anyone that has been through A break up, divorce, with someone that they were truly in love with can identify with it. This song expresses the true feelings of A heartbreak, it says everything that people on the "OTHER" side of the break up are thinking and feeling. Its meaning: breaking up with the one you are in love with is devistating, and when its over, the only thing left are the memories of A better time, and even though they are happy memories, it still hurts.

    We can't predict what will happen to every relationship that we have. It might seem lasting and yet all of a sudden everything is just falling apart and most of the time we are not prepared for it. The tendency for great anticipation is more pain and heartaches. We might not get the chance of having them back but we must look forward to another chapter of our lives that will surely open for us. We must not let the past ruin our future! We deserve something better.
