JAMES MORRISON


One Life Lyrics

When I was a young boy
I was living for the moment
The world was wide open
I had every choice
But so many choices
I just didn't know what to do now

All I say is just forget it
If you tell me I'll regret it
Let it be what it is
'Cause it's so easy to say

If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where will I be tomorrow
Won't let my soul slide away
I'd do whatever it takes
'Cause this time's only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it right

My daddy sat me down
He said, "Son, it's probably time
To start making some plans"
I said "No, not right now"
So many choices
I just didn't know what to do now

All I say is just forget it
Well, you tell me I'll regret it
Let it be what it is
'Cause it's so easy to say

If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where would I be tomorrow
Won't let my soul slide away
And do whatever it takes
'Cause this time's only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it right

You say the more you think you know what's right
The less you do what you feel inside
So I won't pretend that I always know
I just follow my heart wherever it goes

And I may not always get it right
At least I'm living
'Cause I've only got this one life, one life
I've got this one life

If I knew yesterday what I know today
Where will I be tomorrow
I won't let my soul slide away
I'd do whatever it takes
'Cause this time's only borrowed

I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life
And I'm gonna live it right

One life, one life, one life
I just got only one life, one life

When I'm an old man
Hope I'll be rocking in my chair
Smiling to myself
I'll tell my baby girl, you only got one life
So make sure you live it right
