"Once in a Lifetime" as written by Brian Eno, David Byrne, Christopher Frantz, Jerry Harrison and Tina Weymouth....
If only it was raining out tonight
Reflections on the sidewalks would take me back in time
You told me when I left you standing there
Someday I'd be sorry
Well that day is here

I was wrong, oh so wrong
I should have known
That you were the one
Now I know a love like yours only comes along

Once in a lifetime
Once in your life you'll find
The kind of love that never ends
The kind I want back again

You were trying
I could see it in your eyes
As I held a one way fare
To some false paradise
I was dying to spread my restless wings
Now just to see your face again
I'd do anything

I was wrong, oh so wrong
A dreamer in a small town can survive
Now I know it's love like yours
That keep these dreams alive

Once in a lifetime
Once in your life you'll find
The kind of love that never ends
The kind I want back again
So let the rain fall down
Take me back oh take me back
Don't let me down
Let the rain fall down
It's such a lonely sound
Don't let me down

Once in a lifetime
Once in your life you'll find
The kind of love that never ends
The kind I want back again
