One Time

One Time

One time is all we have
To live, to see, what we
Were meant to be
One time is all we have
To right the wrongs
Reach our potential and
Prove that we are strong

In this one life
We can start again
And again and again
Each day given to us
Is a gift
To mend
What yesterday
Could not defend

One time is all we have
To change, to reach out
To a fellow man
And make a friend
One time is all we have
To shine some light
Where darkness rules
With all its might

In this one life
We can start again
And again and again
Each day given to us
Is a gift
To mend
What yesterday
Could not defend

All we have
Is this
One life
Is this
One time
So we should not fear
To stand tall
For what we believe
And want to see
Cause in this moment
We are here
So let’s be free…

In this one life
We can start again
And again and again
Each day given to us
Is a gift
To mend
What yesterday
Could not defend
