  • Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime

    She was the neighborhood dream girl
    Can look, but don't touch, they all wanna know us
    If it ain't with me, then it can't be no one
    When the groupies came to the show
    When the money started to grow
    You stayed down, don't play around
    Look at this girl we made now
    Been around the world and I came right back for your love
    Forgive me for the days and nights I was cutting up
    Wanted the motions in the ocean and emotions covered up
    From flashing lights in the club to magazine covered up
    Fly you to Miami and cop you floor seats
    And you would always tell me your heart was for me
    Way before the models ripped the runway
    It was us, drop-tops, speeding down the runway

    So let's go
    I want you to know that you're special
    I'll never compare you to no one
    Baby, 'cause I know that your love comes
    Once in a lifetime

    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime

    And she was prom queen, I'm just a new Jack
    My city tatted on my back, she had my back, I knew that
    But I started looking for more
    When they started feeling the flow
    Them girls trouble
    Come more than a lifetime and time don't wait for no one
    I'm out here like I throw ones and they dance for me
    My man he warn me how my come-up might just cancel me
    Now I gotta go fix that, get that, hit that
    He flip that in that like I used to be big D-A-D-D-Y
    I'm so special, she can't have another dude that woo her
    I got my Bugatti, but that just pickup and move her
    That sears these years on lairs get weird
    My fear is tears that smears and make-up
    Don't ever make up, you better wake up

    So let's go
    I want you to know that you're special
    I'll never compare you to no one
    Baby, 'cause I know that your love comes
    Once in a lifetime

    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime

    I only got one life to live
    And I wanna spend it with you
    Love the money and the cars, but listen, baby
    You are what I've been missing

    I only got one life to live
    And I wanna spend it with you
    Love the money and the cars, but listen, baby
    You are what I've been missing

    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once every now
    You and I know your love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime

    Only got one life to live
    And I wanna spend it with you
    Love comes once in a lifetime
    Love comes once in a lifetime

    Only got one life to live
    And I wanna spend it with you
    Love comes once in a lifetime
