Once in a Lifetime

This song is by 38 Special and appears on the album Strength in Numbers (1986).

Lovers, they come and go
Just like the seasons.
And lately, it's learnin' to know
When it's the real one.
It may be close at hand.
Don't try to understand it all

'Cause once in a lifetime,
First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime. Mmm

Your heart aches,
For every day, anticipatin'
Just hold on, your time will come
'Cause you've been waitin'
Don't let it bring you down,
Your second chance will come around

'Cause once in a lifetime,
First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime. Yeah, eh

Don't worry cause
It's bound to happen.
It ain't easy when
Your life is passin' you by.
It doesn't matter how you try.
You know it's just a state of mind. Yeah, yeah.

First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime.

Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime. Mmm
