A country/pop/rock tune with some Lou Reed vibes going on. I spent some time in Texas and while never really becoming a country fan, some of the influences creep in here and there. The lyrics are somewhat innocent.

LYRICS

One TIme
One time I’d like to win
This time
You really should give in
It wouldn’t be the first time
And It won’t be the last
A guy like me got up the nerve
And asked you to dance
And One time
One time I’d like to win

This time
I’d like to be the one
This time
It’s not just all in fun
We’ve known each other for awhile
We’ve had some happy times
We know each other’s families
I’m ready to start mine
This time
I’d like to be the one

How can I get you
To listen to me
It isn’t easy I’m a little bit shy
I stumble on words
Make a fool of myself
But listen baby
I’m going crazy
I want to be with you

One time
I’d like to hear a yes
This time
I love you I confessed
I’m on my knee I’m asking you
For more than just romance
Let’s make a happy life for us
I’m asking for that chance
One time
One time I’d like to hear that yes
