about

One Time Thing came to me as a demo from Robert titled "Buckles." I just recently revisited the recording and remembered that it was double timed and a lot more folky. I guess we rocked it up a bunch:) Like "Always Missing Out" we sandwiched two song ideas that fit well together, and brought a unique coda to end this song.

lyrics

One Time Thing - RF/WL

There's only so much time in a day/
To do what needs doin' and to say what needs sayin'/
I don't understand, but you know that I should/
Why jealousy's a monster in our neighbourhood

Your seeds in the ground make you better than me/
Keep common' 'round trying' to leave you mark/
Are you climbing a mountain or waiting your turn?
Takes three thousand miles before you start to learn

You said it's just for fun, and only one time thing/
Before you settle down and wrap your mind around/
The ghosts that haunt your past, I feel a spirit rising/
Upon a new horizon, we can call home

So pull on those boots for a night on the town/
'Cause what goes up, may never come 'round/
If you got something to say don't just keep it to yourself/
Like those family photos collecting dust on the shelf

You said it's just for fun, and only one time thing/
Before you settle down and wrap your mind around/
The ghosts that haunt your past, I feel a spirit rising/
Upon a new horizon, we can call home

If you pulled you act together, we could make something better/
With all these pieces lying scattered on the ground/
I'm willing if you're able, to get back to the table/
And find the common that we both know can be found
