Just Once  James Ingram

I[C(9] did my [FM7]best
But i g[Em7]uest my best wasn't good en[Am7]ough
'Cau[Dm7]se here we are, back[Em7] where we were[Em7-Am7] before
See[Dm7]ms nothin'eve[G7(sus)G7]r changes,We'[E7(sus]re back to [E7]bein'str[Am7]anger;
Dm7 C(E) FM7 G7(SUS)G7
Wond'rin' if we ought to stay, Or head on out the door.
CHORUS 1: -----------

J[C]ust o[G]nce can we fig[C]ure out what w[C7]e keep doin wr[FM7]ong?
W[Dm7]hy we never las[G7]t for very lo[Am7]ng;
W[Dm7]hat are we doing[G7(sus] wrong?
J[C]ust on[G]ce, can we f[C]ind a way to f[C7]inally make it r[FM7]ight,
To[Dm7] make the magic l[G7]ast for more than [Em7]just one n[Am7]ight?
Dm7 G7(sus) C(9)-FM7 C-FM7,G
If we could just get to it,I know we could break through it hmmm.
I[C(9] gave my[FM7] all,
But [Em7]think all my have [Am7]been to much:
The l[Dm7]ord knows we're not g[G7]etting anyw[Am7]here.
Dm7 G7(sus),G7
Seems we're always blowin
W[E7(sus]hat ever w[E7]e've got goi[Am7]n,
And it [Dm7]seems that time was [C]all we've got; We [FM7]havent go[G7(sus)-G7]t a friend.

 CHORUS 2: --------------

J[C]ust o[G]nce, can we fi[C]gure out what[C7] we keep doin w[FM7]rong,
W[Dm7] hy the good times ne[G7]ver last for [Am7]long?
Dm7 G7(sus),G7
Where are we goin wrong?
Ju[C]st on[G]ce, can we fin[C]d a way to fin[C7]ally make it r[FM7]ight,
To[Dm7] make the magic l[G7]ast for more than [Em7]just one nig[Am7]ht?
[Dm7]I know we could break through it,
If w[G7(sus]e could just get to it.


Just [Ab]once, I want to u[Fm7]nderstand
Why[Bbm7] it always co[Eb7(sus]mes back to go[Ab]odb[9]yes.
W[B]hy [BM7]can't we get ourse[G#m7]lves in hand,
A[C#m7]nd admit to one[B(/D] another
W[E]e're no good wit[B(/D]hout each other?
T[C#m7]ake the best and mak[B(/D#]e it better; Fi[Em7]nd a way to st[A7(sus]ay togeth[A7]er.

CHORUS  3:    -------------

J[D]ust once[A/D],we can fi[D7(9]nd a way to fi[D7(/F#]n'lly make it r[GM7]ight,[F#m7]  oh
Em7 A7(/g) F#m7 Bm7
to make the magic last for more than just one night?
I [Em7]know we could break through it
If [A7(sus]we could just get [A7]to it.
Repeat 2nd stanza of Chorus 2)
  ....just onc[D]e.[A/d)-G(/D)-]
D A(/D) Bb(6)A7(sus)(hold)
Woh, we can get to it
just once.
D-G(/D)(/f#)- G(9)- A7(SUS)-B(9)
