Once in a While
by Billy Dean



Once in a while someone comes along
That one in a million heart
So pure and so strong
They can face up to the tears
And somehow still find a smile
That we only get every once in a while

Once in a while someone has the eyes
That one in a million look
That never tells lies
They can get you on your feet
To walk that extra mile
We only see every once in a while

That's why we call them heroes
That's why we know their names
And once you've heard their stories
You're never quite the same

That's why we call them heroes
The best thing they ever do
Is to point to the best in us all
And say: "If I can, you can too."

Once in a while, I still hear his voice
That one in a million sound
Like two laughin' boys
He would hate it if we cried
That never was his style
Oh, we still miss him every once in a while

Oh
They can face up to the tears
And somehow still find a smile
That we only get every once in a while

Oh, how I miss him every once in a while
