"Once In a Lifetime" as written by Frank Gregorian, Thomas Schwarz, Matthias Meissner, Patti Unwin and Susana Espelleta-peterson....
Cuando anochezca
Te esperare
Quiero volverte loco esta noche
Con la luna llena
Te esperare
Hoy moriras entre mis brazos
Nunca sonaras de mi aun igual

When the darkness falls
I will wait for you
I want to drive you crazy tonight
with the full moon
I'll wait for you
Tonight you'll die in my arms
You never dreamt of anything like

Let me dive in
To pools of sin
Wet black leather on my skin
Show me the floor
Lay down the law
I need to taste you more

Refrain:
Then I feel your sea
Raining down on me
Can this be my once in a lifetime
Hell's at heaven's door
As I need you more
You know you're my once in a lifetime

Todo tu cuerpo temblara
Pero esta ves, es realidad
Aunque el tiempo pase
Nunca
Nunca me olividaras
Sera
Solo una ves en tu vida

Your whole body will tremble
But this time is reality
Though the time will pass
You'll never
never forget
It will be
only once in your life

When you take me
And make me cry
Then I feel you satisfy
Show me the cage
It's all the rage
And lock it up

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime

Giving you my soul
Letting you control
Took away a part of my lifetime
Memories of you
Left me black and blue
Now I know you're once in a lifetime

Refrain

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Refrain

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime

    General CommentAlright, I'll start the ball rolling.

    It takes a little bit to understand this song, as it's upbeat tone and rather impressive chorus full of double meanings (Once in a life time - Is that a good or bad once in a life time?).

    Eventually it hits you like a ton of bricks. She's in an abusive relationship, and has finally gotten out of it in the last stanza, determind not to get into one again, to make sure he was really 'Once in a lifetime.' It's sad to think that he probably won't be the last too, and it's probably intentional that the song ends with that thought.

    General Commenti respect what you said, but disagree
    i think it is a song about a relationship based on love-and-hate feelings but that, at the end of the days turns out to be what she wants "i need to taste you more"
    i believe she says the "once in a lifetime" is that she finally found her soulmate and is enjoying his company so much, she has just found "a part of me that's a mystery"

    General Commenti believe iit is entirely about D/s bdsm and tpe, it is all about 'the one' that you hope for and yearn for all of your life and might have a once in a lifetime chance of being with; a good many of her songs are filled with references to the D/s lifestyle but commenting on this particular one -- one of my favorite songs of all time -- the first stanze 'let me dive in to pools . . . taste you more' is her request to be controlled -- i'd better stop at this point and see exactly how this site works. there is a good deal more involving symbolism in the song as well . . . vixen

    General CommentThis is about a woman who has recently experienced BDSM.

    wet black leather on my skin = literally
    feel your sea raining down on me = water sports
    Hell's at heaven's door = how can this be so wrong and feel so good?
