Just Once

In the style of

James Ingram

Lyrics

i did my best
but i guess my best
wasn't good enough
'cause here we are
back where
we were before

seems nothing
ever changes
we're back
to being strangers
wonderin' if we
ought to stay
or head on
out the door

just once
can we figure out
what we keep
doin' wrong
why we never last
for very long
what are we
doin' wrong

just once
can't we find a way
to finally
make it right
to make the magic last
for more than
just one night

if we could
just get to it
i know we could
break through it
mm mm mm

i gave my all
but i think my all
may have been
too much
'cause lord knows
we're not getting
anywhere

seems we're
always blowin'
whatever
we've got goin'
and it seems at times
with all we've got
we haven't got
a prayer

just once
can't we figure out
what we keep
doin' wrong
why the good times
never last for long
where are we
goin' wrong

just once
can't we find a way
to finally
make it right
to make the magic last
for more than
just one night

i know we could
break through it
if we could
just get to it
just once

i want to understand
why it always
comes back
to goodbye

why can't we
give ourselves a hand
and admit to
one another
we're no good
without each other

take the best
and make it better
find a way
to stay together

just once
can't we find a way
to finally
make it right
woh
to make the magic last
for more than
just one night

i know we could
break through it
if we could
just get to it
just once

woh
we can get to it
just once
