Once In A Lifetime

From the Michael Andrew album Four Play
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Once In A Lifetime is one of those that just comes without a real reason why. I was fooling around at the keyboard and suddenly played this chord sequence. What was that? Can I do it again? And the words just came. I planned to change them later, but by the second verse I know that wasn't going to happen.

Lyrics

Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can take it all away
Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can make it a brighter day
And then you know you've found the one
Who can make it all come true
A once in a lifetime, and it's you

Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can make you want to smile
Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can make it all worthwhile
The only one who's by your side
Through everything that you do
A once in a lifetime, and it's you

It used to be I didn't believe
In fate or destiny
It used to be I didn't believe
But then a miracle happened to me
A once in a lifetime happened to me

It used to be I didn't believe
In luck or circumstance
It used to be I didn't believe
Until a miracle happened to me
A once in a lifetime happened to me

Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can take away your pain
Once in your lifetime
You find someone who can make you whole again
And then you know you've found the one
Who can make it all come true
A once in a lifetime, and it's you
