One Time Only

One Time Only
(Tom Paxton)

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
