I let love die... broke a woman's heart
Have only myself to blame
Fate ran its course... I suffered the loss
I learned a lesson in pain

I cheated and lied... I took love for granted
Acting as cold as ice
But it's all in the past
I won't make the same mistake twice

Once is enough... it's one time too many... no
The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough

Love went through such a sudden change
Taken a turn for the worst
The joy turned to fear... the pain got so severe
Lord... I thought I was cursed... yeah

Ya get what ya give... it come 'round full circle
Ooo... and I paid the price
'Cause I lost love so fast
I won't make the same mistake twice


I let love die... broke a woman's heart
Have only myself to blame
Fate ran its course... I suffered the loss
Learned a lesson in pain
I cheated and lied... I took love for granted
Oooo... and I paid the price
I lost love so fast
I won't make the same mistake twice

Tell me...

Once is enough... it's one time too many... oooua
The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough

Looky here...

Love went through such a sudden change
Taken a turn for the worst
The joy turned to fear... the pain got so severe
Lord... I thought I was cursed

Ya get what ya give... it come 'round full circle
Ooo... and I paid the price
But I lost love so fast
I won't make the same mistake twice

Once is enough... it's one time too many
The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough... yeah

Wow...

I cheated and lied... I took love for granted
Mmmm it's sure not nice
As sure as I'm bad
I won't make the same mistake twice

Cause... once is enough... it's one time too many
The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough

Once is enough... it's one time too many
The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough

Oh oh oh...

The changes are rough... oooo... once is enough



Thanks to everybody and good night we love ya... thank you
