Once in a While


Once in a while, when the lights are low
And that old song drifts into my mind
I think about you and your beautiful dreams
That melted like snow in the sun
Once in a while, when the lights are low


There was a short time, so long ago
When our footsteps fell side by side
Down the hallways and corridors,
Where we both learned to be who we are
For a short time, so long ago


Don’t it feel like a lifetime ago
Don’t it feel like we’ll never be home
And don’t it seem the years before us
Are so fewer than the years behind
Don’t it feel just like that, sometimes


There’ll be a time not too long from now
Where an unwalked path awaits our feet
When that song’s in the air again
And the snow sparkles bright in your eyes
In a time, not too long from now


But, don’t it feel like a lifetime ago
Don’t it feel like we’ll never be home
And don’t it seem the years before us
Are so fewer than the years behind
Don’t it feel just like that, sometimes


Once in a while, when the lights are low

You DO know there’s an old standard, Once in a While? Just sayin’...

Thanks for the comments and listening -
@Joel - I am not familiar with an old standard - is it country?

No. It’s a well known tune, probably going back to the ‘30s. Don’t know who wrote it, off the top. You can google it…

... there’s a man out on the corner, singing old songs about change
Everybody got their cross to bare these days….

...sounds like the composer was a little inspired by Bon Jovi 👀

...every once in a while, I get in the mood or so…and start to play..
