Simply breathe, simply chill out, it’ll be okay
Simply an hour ’til your automotive’s within the driveway
Simply the primary time ever hangin’ out with you tonight
I’ve obtained my cash on issues goin’ badly
Received a historical past of tales ending sadly
Nonetheless hoping that the fireplace received’t burn me
Only one time, only one time

All I do know is this might both break my coronary heart or deliver it again to life
Received a feelin’ your electrical contact may fill this ghost city up with life
And I would like you now, wanna want you endlessly
Within the warmth of your electrical contact, mmm

I’ve been left within the rain misplaced and pining
I’m tryin’ arduous to not seem like I’m making an attempt
’Trigger each time I attempted arduous for love, it fell aside (Woah)
I’ve gotten used to nobody callin’ my telephone
I’ve grown accustomed to sleepin’ alone
Nonetheless, I do know that every one it takes is to get it proper
Only one time, only one time

Perhaps the celebs align (Only one time)
And perhaps I name you mine
And also you received’t want area
Or string me alongside when you resolve
And only one time (Only one time)
Perhaps the second’s proper (The second’s proper)
