once lyrics – pearl jam

“once”

i admit it…what’s to say…yeah…
i’ll relive it…without pain…mmm…
backstreet lover on the side of the road
i got a bomb in my temple that is gonna explode
i got a sixteen gauge buried under my clothes, i play…
once upon a time i could control myself
ooh, once upon a time i could lose myself, yeah…
oh, try and mimic what’s insane…ooh, yeah…
i am in it…where do i stand?
oh, indian summer and i hate the heat
i got a backstreet lover on the p*ssenger seat
i got my hand in my pocket, so determined, discreet…i pray…
once upon a time i could control myself
ooh, once upon a time i could lose myself, yeah, yeah…
you think i got my eyes closed
but i’m lookin’ at you the whole f*ckin’ time…
ooh, once upon a time i could control myself, yeah…
once upon a time i could lose myself, yeah, yeah, yeah…
once, upon a time i could love myself, yeah…
once upon a time i could love you, yeah, yeah, yeah…
once [4x]
yeah…once, once…yeah, yeah…
yeah…yeah, yeah…yeah, yeah…oww…
