"Once In A Lifetime" as written by and John/urban Shanks....
I can see it in your eyes and feel it in your touch
I know that you're scared, but you've never been this loved
It's a long shot, baby, I know it's true
But if anyone can make it, I'm betting on me and you
Just keep on moving in to me
I know you're going to see
The best is yet to come

Don't fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

Everybody's looking for what we've found
Some wait their whole lives and it never comes around
So don't hold back now
Just let go of all you've ever known
And put your hand in mine

Don't fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

I close my eyes, and I see you standing right there
Saying 'I do,' and they're throwing rice in our hair
Then the first one's born; then a brother comes along, and he's got your smile
I'll be looking back at the life we had still at your side

So don't fear it now, we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I'm never giving up 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

    General CommentLike most of the songs on this cd, its obvious this one was written for Nicole. He pictures their life together and how good its going to be.

    General CommentHe's telling his love,that yeah she might fear getting hurt, but to just trust him, because he's not gonna crush her heart because he knows that what he has doesn't come around on a daily basis,so he will cherish her

    General CommentI can't belive more people haven't commented on this one, this is probly one of his most epic songs, maybe not lyrically speaking, but musically, it's COOL!

    General CommentIts a story about their lives together. The first verse is the first time they have sex, and she is scared and he is telling her to trust him. The second verse is about them getting more serious as a couple, and the third verse is about them getting married/having kids.
    I LOVE the lyrics "Then the first one's born, then a brother comes along and he's got your smile". There is just something about the way he says them that just bleeds a father's devotion to his family!
