As a little boy I used to dream of the big stage
Couldn't wait to see my name in lights
I had a dream so big, it made a mountain look small
Couldn't wait till I had it all

The closer I'd get, the more distant I'd feel

The more I thought I had, the less it all seemed real

Suddenly I found, the only thing for me that counts
And I can't imagine my life without you

Once in a lifetime you find a love you know is real
Once in a lifetime you find something that makes your song live
Once in a lifetime you find a friendship that's worth the wait
Once in a lifetime you find joy you can't replace
	
I used to think that it was the trophies on my wall
Thought if I won then I'd have it all
And I couldn't wait till everybody knew my name
I had my own idea of fame

The closer I'd get, the more distant I'd feel
The more I thought I had, the less it all seemed real
Suddenly I found, the only thing for me that counts
I can't imagine my life without you

Once in a lifetime you find a love you can't let go
Once in a lifetime you find the purpose to live on
Once in a lifetime you find the meaning of your dreams
And once in a lifetime you find the one who gives life meaning
Once in a lifetime you find a love you know is real
Once in a lifetime you find something that makes your song live
Once in a lifetime you find a friendship that's worth the wait
Once in a lifetime you find joy you can't replace

Once in a lifetime I've found the best thing I know
Once in lifetime there's no sign of letting go
Once in a lifetime I wouldn't change a single thing
Once in a lifetime you made my whole world sing
I'll never look beyond your love again
Because I know what I've found is truth
