Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Once in a Life Time Moment

It’s been called ‘A Once in a Life Time’ moment
It’s also been called ‘A Now or Never’ sign
Call it by any name you like, but know that
'Chance' has always preferred a prepared mind

There are never any ‘Heads-Up’ given
Advance Notice - that is never done
By searching in every persons eyes that you meet
Only assures the results you hope for will never come

The ‘Once in a Life Time’ you seem to always be able to find
The ‘Now or Never’ signs that you believed you could see
They always left you disappointed - time after time
Every one of these moments existed only in your head
Playing cruel tricks on your mind

Then one day – when you least expected it, came a moment
A moment that never - not in a million years, could you have foreseen
A moment of clarity – in which, for the very first time
You realize that everything you thought you knew; and had seen
Existed only in your deepest desires
And lived in your wildest dreams

Your ‘Now or Never’ Moment - That ‘Once in a Life Time’
It only reveals itself to us 'Once in Blue Moon'
To show you that everything you have dreamed of can be real
And that it does exist; and not just in your mind
And it’s right here, and it’s right now, standing right in front of you...
What are you going to do?
