Lyrics
Once In Our Lives
Written By: Dan Brown Jr
Copyright 2012

Verse 1

I know things seems O so tough
But have you reached the point of just give up
We’ve come through so much this far
I’m just little confused with what we are – Because

Chorus

I know that we can make it
There’s no reason to fake it
All we need is just one more try
For once in our…

Life as we know it changes
Together, let’s embrace it
All we need is just one more try
For once in our lives

Chorus

I know things seems O so rough
But if it were easy would it be love
Through the highs and lows and ups and the downs
We’ve beatin’ all odds so why quit now - Because

Chorus

Bridge

For once in our lives
Let’s take a chance
What could it hurt If we
Just let each other in

For once in our lives
Let’s try romance
Will you take my hand
And share one more dance

For Once
Rolls along very well. I like the sound of the "guitanjo" (what is that, exactly?). Easy but evocative vocal with warm lyrics. Good variety in the arrangement. Much enjoyed!

For Once In Our Lives
Strong melody. Strong musical structure. Last line of the verse serves as an effective pre-chorus building the tension released in the chorus. The bridge is an effective musical contrast to the rest of the song. Lyrically I don't think the story progresses from verse 1 to 2, and the message in the bridge is more of the same. The first line in the chorus is a traditional place for a hook, and you've set it up well, so it's coming across that way. However, I don't think it detracts from the "For once in our lives" hook found in the tag line.
