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 nothing ever changes
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we oughta stay
or head on out the door

Just once
can't we figure out
what we keep doing wrong?
Why we never last for very long
What are we doing wrong?
Just once
can't we find a way to
finally make it right?
Make the magic last
for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through it

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 blowing
whatever we've got going
And seems at times
with all we've got
we haven't got a prayer

Just once
can't we figure out
what we keep doing wrong?
Why the good times
never last for very long
What are we doing wrong?
Just once
can't we find a way to
finally make it right?
And make the magic last
for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through 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 the 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, make the magic last
for more than just one night
I know we can break through it
If we could just get to it
just once

Woh, we could 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..
