Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson - Night Life

Once upon a lifetime

I looked in someone’s eyes

And felt the fire burning in my heart

For the very first time

She was scared and young

And had never tasted love

So I took her by the hand

And a boy became a man

Once upon a lifetime

And once upon a lifetime

You hold the queen of hearts

And if you gamble on a diamond win

The dealin’ starts

You stand to lose it all

As the cards begin to fall

And the lesson learned is hard

You’re only dealt the queen of cards

Once upon a lifetime

So if you’re taking chances, know the chance you take

A broken heart’s a high price to pay

Foolish ways will make fools of the wise

And the best things seldom come along twice

Once upon a lifetime

You know that you’ve been blessed

When you hold your first born tenderly against your chest

And through the innocence you see

The value of a family

And you feel a special bond

That only comes along

Once upon a lifetime

So if you’re taking chances, know the chance you take

A broken heart’s a high price to pay

Foolish ways will make fools of the wise

And the best things seldom come along twice

And people only find love like yours and mine

Once upon a lifetime
