"One Moment In Time" as written by John Bettis and Albert Hammond....
Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I've lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free

    General CommentI want one moment in time
    When im more then I thought I could be
    When all of my dreams are a heart beat away
    and the answers are all up to me

    This song reflects how I see my life today and what I want to achieve in my life. I listen to this song when I am at my lowest and it makes my hear soar with dignity. One of the best inspirational songs ever.

    General Commentit's a great song, which always reminds me of the day I got a scholarship I desperatly needed and when I got home that day all my friends were waiting for me and this song was playing....oh the memories
    ...anyway, it's about giving it all for that one moment when you're on the top of the world, when you feel that nothing can stop you.....
