Once And Again

ONCE AND AGAIN - Written by Carroll Bryant


It feels like you have wasted so much time
Left so much behind
Every morning and every night
The same kind of girl
The same old guy
The world keeps turning

You hear your heartbeat pound out loud
You can feel it ripping right through your doubt
Living on the same old cloud
You don't know why
Falling from out of the sky
The fire keeps on burning 

Will you ever meet the one who will take you away
To another place
Where you hope your heart will stay
With just one lonely face

Once and again is just not enough
Broken hearts and stuff and hearts that fall in love
You surrender to another isolated touch
You play the game ... but you never win 
It's always a tie in the end
It's always once and again

Once and again you feel the rush
Lonely souls getting stuffed with some lies
You want to fall in love so much you could die
You're feeling it in the air
You know that something is lingering there
You can feel it and you know this and then
You fall for her hand
Once and again

The night can take forever sometimes
Just to make it through to the dawn
Empty glasses of wine sitting on the table
She is long gone
A restless glance
A breathless sigh
The soul keeps on learning as you fight back the time

A lovers voice echos in your mind

It hits you hard that you are all by yourself
The morning dances with somebody else
Questions not asked and there are no answers
Everything is left unsaid 
And the heart keeps yearning

Will you ever get the chance to experience one more good romance?
The second time around might be more vain
Than pain

Once and again is just not enough
Broken hearts and stuff and hearts that fall in love
You surrender to another isolated touch
You play the game ... but you never win 
It's always a tie in the end
It's always once and again

Once and again you feel the rush
Lonely souls getting stuffed with some lies
You want to fall in love so much you could die
You're feeling it in the air
You know that something is lingering there
You can feel it and you know this and then
You fall for her hand
Once and again

Will you ever meet the one who will take you away
To another place
Where you hope your heart will stay
With just one lonely face

Lonely face

It hits you hard that you are all by yourself
The morning dances with somebody else
Questions not asked and there are no answers
Everything is left unsaid 
And the heart keeps yearning

The world keeps turning

Once and again and then you go back to bed
A lovers voice echos in your mind
