LL Cool J — One Shot At Love lyrics

One shot
Oh lord
You know, it's gonna be a lot of negative things surrounding you
Trying to pull you down
But what you have to remember is
It's up to you, it's your choice
You only get one shot in life
And you only get one shot at love

Did you ever notice, every time you fall in love
And it seems like you finally met the perfect match
Everything is perfect, it seems divine
But for some strange reason, there's always a catch
It's a one-way relationship, it hurts inside
One person smirks while the other one cries
Butterflies in the stomach of the one whose in love
It cuts like a knife, the truth mixed with lies

One shot (one shot at love)
One shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
One shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
One shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
That's all you get

Physical and mental, those are two different loves
Physical's a moment, mental is forever
If the physical fades and gets weak, all of a sudden
Remember, it's the mental love that keeps you together
You gotta be strong and endure the hard times
Cause af-ter hard times, good times, always follow
And when you're kissin' and huggin' and makin' love
Treat that person like there's no tomorrow

One shot (one shot at love)
One shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
That's all you get baby, one shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
One shot at love, one, shot (one shot at love)
That's all you get

Jealousy, don't let it interfere
Don't let it come in between
The love you two share, cause jealousy's a hateful God
So merciless and mean
And it's only job in life, is to ruin relationships
And pit two people against, one another
And because of this God, the one you love so much
Will no longer be your lover

One shot (one shot at love)
Aw baby, one shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
That's all we get, one shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
I mean this baby, one shot at love, one shot (one shot at love)
That's all

I hope you understand what I just said
All I'm saying is that you only get one shot at love in life
And you have to hold on to that shot, take advantage of it
Cause when you lose it, it's gonna hurt real bad
Take it from me
You only get one shot, and I mean that
One shot

[Repeat: x4]
You only get you only get you only get one
You only get you only get you only get one
One shot at love
