” Once In A Lifetime”

I heard a beautiful song recently by and artist named Landon Austin. The song entitled ” Once in a lifetime” is one of the most beautiful songs I have had the pleasure of hearing, and I am almost certain I will walk down the isle to it. If you have seen any wedding videos recently, chances are you have heard it. If not you can listen to it HERE.

I thought since the lyrics are so powerful, I would break them down and explain what I think about when I hear them.

A summer rain is passing over
And it feels like a dream

I could run and look for shelter
But you hold onto me

I think summer rain refers to the unexpected joys in life that happen suddenly. You can run and observe them from a safe place, but he his love holds him in place.

I’m under your skies
I’m caught in your eyes
Don’t you know you stop the room
And all that I can see is you

His love controls him, he is wrapped up in it. It takes his complete attention to the point it’s all he can focus on.

I’m standing where the lightning strikes
I know this doesn’t happen twice
You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime
You must be my once in a lifetime

Lightning only strikes one, like a love like this. This love, this person, is his once in a lifetime love. 

There’s so much that I have told you
But it’s all in my head
Ask me anything you want to
‘Cause the answer is yes 

I’ll spend my whole life
Just being caught up in your eyes

Sometimes it feels like the person you love knows every aspect of you, even if you have never told them. It feels like you have told them everything when you haven’t. You would do anything and everything this person asked you, you’ll spend you entire lifetime willingly being wrapped around their finger. 

Don’t you know you stop the room
And all that I can see is you
I’m standing where the lightning strikes
I know this doesn’t happen twice
You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime
You must be my once in a lifetime

 * Chorus repeat* 

So before the storm has passed
I just want to ask
Can we make this moment last?
So before the storm is passed
I just want to ask
Can we make this moment last? (moment last?)

Before this unexpected joy and happiness has subsided, can we make this lat longer, when it gets hard when it’s not fun all the time, do we have what it takes to stick together?

*Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da*

Don’t you know you stop the room
And all that I can see is you
I’m standing where the lightning strikes
I know this doesn’t happen twice
You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime
You must be my once in a lifetime
