Alabama — Once Upon A Lifetime lyrics

Once Upon A Lifetime
Alabama
Album: American Pride

Once upon a lifetime I looked in someone's eyes
And felt the fire burning in my heart for the very first time
She was scared and young and had never tasted love
So I took her by the hand and a boy became a man
Once upon a lifetime

And once upon a lifetime you hold the queen of hearts
But if you gamble on a diamond when the dealing starts
You stand to lose it all as the cards begin to fall
And the lesson learned is hard you're only dealt the queen of hearts
Once upon a lifetime

So if you're taking chances know the chance you take
A broken heart's a high price to pay
Foolish ways will make fools of the wise
And the best things seldom come along twice

Once upon a lifetime you know that you've been blessed
When you hold your first born tenderly against your chest
Through the innocence you see there you are the family
And you feel a special bond that only comes along
Once upon a lifetime

So if you're taking chances know the chance you take
A broken heart's a high price to pay
Foolish ways will make fools of the wise
And the best things seldom come along twice

And people only find a love like yours and mine
Once upon a lifetime
