Just Once Lyrics

I did my best
But I guess my best wasn't good enough
Cause here we are
Back where we were before
Seems nothin' ever changes
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we ought to stay
Or head on out the door

Just once...

Can't 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
(Hmm hmmmm)

I gave my all
But I think my all may have been too much
Cause Lord knows we're not gettin' 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

(Bridge)
Just once
I want to understand...
Why it always comes back to goodbye
Why
Can't we get ourselves in 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 (Whoa)
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...

Whoa oh, we can get to it

Just Once...

This song for me, reminds me with my past love namely FRITZ. He is my first boyfriend, the first one who broke my heart into pieces and the one who left me without reason.
Yes, I did my best just to let him back, but I failed.
Why we never last for very long, till end??? If ever there's a chance you can read this! . . . Please find way, then let me know why, just once:'(

this song is for me. I did my best for him to stay, but i guess my best wasn't good enough for him, i gave my all but still it's not enough. before we are strangers to each other and now were back of being strangers.. i want to figure out what is wrong with me, what i've done wrong. I want to find a way to finally make it right.

Too Much, Too Little, Too Late.....You were the love of my life....you left me. I was completely devastated. Now, several years later...you want me back...you say you made a mistake. I am so torn...I never stopped loving you deep down in my heart, but somehow,I just can't let myself go there again..
