Tom Paxton

One Time Only

I spent my hungry young years running wild
There was a lot I had to do
And I spent cities like a handful of change
But I never quit looking for you

One time and one time only
Been such a long time lonely
One time and all time it will be
Been waiting such a long time
Each time has been the wrong time
Until you came to me

I looked for you in every face I saw
I could not find you any where
Then finally one day I quit trying at all
Looked up and saw you standing there
I don't mind telling you what's on my mind
It's no big secret any more
I have no plans at all for moving on
That's one thing I never been for
