"Once" as written by John Shanks, Jeffrey Steele and Kara Dioguardi....
Should of been much further than this by now
A little bit more gone a little less twisted around
Should of been much better you'd think but I'm not,
I'm still stuck, I'm still here, in this rut

Looking back on everything that we had
Holding on to words that we can't take back
What am I to do with the past, when it's all that I have,
And I can't get you back

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared
Once, oh, once

I remember you sayin' I was the one,
And nothing could change that but you were wrong
It's funny how life turns on a dime now we don't even talk
I just stare at these walls

And I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go I'm reminded of us
Where we've been all we've done and all the love that we shared
Once, you made the world feel so right
Once, you were my morning noon and night
Why'd we slip away, why did it all change,
How will I ever be the same

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

Should of been much further then this by now
A little bit more gone a little less twisted around

    General Commenti agree. it's definitely reminiscing on a love that he wants back; that he misses. It's an amazing song! :) I can definitely relate to this song. it describes what i'm feeling right now.

    General Commentthis makes me miss my ex more than i already do. this song is perfect for me and him!
    it's looking back on a relationship that was thought to last forever and it was perfect and even after the breakup you still miss him/her
