"Once in a Lifetime" as written by Vassal Grandington Benford, Kathy Wakefield and Oleta Adams....
Looking at you
I can't hardly believe
After all this time
You've come to me

I've searched the world over
I've searched far and wide
Just to be in one place
Right here by your side

And so many nights, baby
I've been wasting my time
On love untrue, waiting for you

I've been watching for someone, baby
And I didn't know who
Something inside of me told me
It was you, I knew

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find someone like you
And for once in my life
Someone's found me too

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find love again
Let our story of love begin
Never end

I wish, I could tell you
How you changed my heart
Like a thousand lights
In the midst of the dark, ooh baby

And so many nights, baby
I've been wasting my time
On love untrue, waiting for you

I've been watching for someone, baby
And I didn't know who
Something inside of me told me
It was you, I knew

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find someone like you
And for once in my life
Someone's found me too

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find love again
Let our story of love begin
Never, never end

I've been praying so hard for you, yes, I have
Tryin' to get through to you, oh baby
I was watching for somebody, boy
And I didn't know who, who
Something inside of me told me
It had to be you, I knew

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find someone like you
And for once in my, my life
Someone's found me too

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find love again
Let our story of love begin
Never, never end

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find someone like you
And for once in my life
Someone's found me too

I knew that once in a lifetime
I'd find love again
Let our story of love begin
Never, never end, oh, baby
