“Once A Day” Lyrics

When you found somebody new
I thought I never would
Forget you
For I thought then I never could
But time has taken all the pains away-ay
Until now, I’m down to hurtin’
Once a day

Once a day (once a day)
A-all day long (all day long)
And o-once a night (once a night)
From dusk till dawn (dusk till dawn)
The only time
I wish you weren’t go-one
Is once a day
Everyday
All day long

I’m so glad that I’m not like
A girl I knew one time
She lost the one she loved
Then slowly lost her mind
She sat around and cried her life away-ay
Lucky me
I’m only cryin’ once a day

Once a day (once a day)
A-all day long (all day long)
And o-once a night (once a night)
From dusk till dawn (dusk till dawn)
The only time
I wish you weren’t go-one
Is once a day
Everyday
All day long
Once a day
Everyday
All day lo-ong
