Lyrics
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

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

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

Hey 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
