"Once In A Lifetime"
(from "Cadillac Records" soundtrack)

This is just another day that I would spend
Waiting for the right one
Staring at the night and wishing I could be the one
To feel the warm sun
You're a dream, but I'm wide awake
I'm in Heaven, for heaven sakes
So get ready, (get ready) I'm ready now (get ready)
I could never need you more than now

You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
Hold on to you tight
For once in my life
You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
This kind of love you'll only find
Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime

Tell me that your living in a place
Where no one else can find you
Tell me that your singing out my name
Hoping that I'll hear you
Tell me "No" and I'll fade away
But this is loving that I won't waste
So get ready, (get ready) I'm ready now (get ready)
I could never need you more than now

You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
Hold on to you tight
For once in my life
You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
This kind of love you'll only find
Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime

What are the words, I'm needing to hear
How do I know if I'll ever love again
Seeing your face makes everything clear (clear) clear
And I will never be the same

You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
Hold on to you tight
For once in my life
You were worth waiting for
You the one that I adore
This kind of love you'll only find
Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime
