Album: Why Me? Why Not. (2019)
Charted: 49
  • It was easier to have fun back when we had nothin'
    Nothin' much to manage
    Back when we were damaged
    Sometimes the freedom we wanted feels so uncool
    Just clean the pool
    And send the kids to school

    But oh, I remember how you used to shine back then
    You went down so easy like a glass of wine, my friend
    When the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again
    But it turns out
    You only get to do it once

    I think it's true what they say that the dream is borrowed
    You give it back tomorrow
    Minus the sorrow
    And the pain, she just comes in to break up the daydream
    And I felt his waving
    To keep from feeling the same thing

    But oh, I remember how you used to shine back then
    You went down so easy like a glass of wine, my friend
    When the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again
    But it turns out
    You only get to do it once

    You only get to do it once
    You only get to do it once
    You only get to do it once

    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)
    (Once)

    But oh, I remember how you used to shine back then
    You went down so easy like a glass of wine, my friend
    When the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again
    But we were wrong
    You only get to do it once Writer/s: Andrew Wyatt, Liam Gallagher
