Am             D
One time, to know that it's real
Am             D
One time, to know how it feels
       G   E
That's all

One call your voice on the phone
One place a moment alone
That's all

C                             Em
What do you see, what do you know?
One sign, what do we do?
                  C    G      Am
Just follow your lifelines through
C                       Em
What if it hurts, what then?
One sign, what do you say?
                  G         Dm Am G
Don't throw your lifelines away
                             Dm Am G E
Don't throw your lifelines away

One time, just once in my life
One time to know it can
happen twice

One-shot on a clear blue sky
One look, I see no reason
why we can't

C                  D
One chance to get back to the point where
G     D      C
everything starts
C             Bm        Am
One chance to keep it together
  D                B
when things fall apart
Am        D                    Em E
One sign make us believe it's true

What do you see? Where do we go?
One sign, how do we grow?
By letting your lifelines show
What if we do? What now?
What do you say? How do I know?
Don't let your lifeline go
Don't let your lifeline go
Don't let your lifeline go
