Once- Rascal Flatts (off the album "unstoppable")




    

Intro- Dm, F, G



Dm                            F

Should've been much further
         G

Than this by now
Dm                          F

Little bit more gone a little
        G

Less twisted around
Dm                           F

Shouldv'e been much better 
G

You'd think
            Bb     
But I'm not, I'm still stuck



    

I'm still here in this rut


Dm                      G

Looking back on everything
F

That we had
Dm                 F    
Holding on to words that we
G

Can't take back
Dm                 F              G

What am I to do with the past
Bb

When it's all that I have
And I can't get you back


[Chorus]
          F

Now I wait by the phone
       Dm                    C

In the dark, drunk on hope
            Gm
I'm so lost, I'm so low
               Bb               C

and I just want you to know
                 F

Everywhere that I go
      Dm              C

I'm reminded of us
                   Gm
Where we've been, all we've done
                Bb                C

And all the love that we shared
Dm     F  G

Once

Oh, once --
 
Verse- (Same chords as previous verses)
I remember you saying I was the one
And nothing could change that
But you were wrong
Its funny how life turns on a dime
Now we don't even talk
I just just stare at these walls and


[Chorus]
        F

Now I wait by the phone
       Dm                    C

In the dark, drunk on hope
            Gm
I'm so lost, I'm so low
               Bb               C

and I just want you to know
                 F

Everywhere that I go
      Dm              C

I'm reminded of us
                   Gm
Where we've been, all we've done
                Bb                C                  Gm
And all the love that we shared


Gm       Bb                C

Once, you made the world feel
      Gm
So right
            Bb             C

Once, you were my morning,
                         Bb

Noon and night
                            Dm     C

Why'd we slip away
                      Bb     
Why did it all change
              C               C#dim
Now will I ever be the same

               Bb               C

and I just want you to know

Everywhere that I go

Little bit more gone a little less
G

Twisted around

View Just Lyrics...

Should of been much further than this by now
A little bit more gone a little less twisted around
Should of been much better you'd think but I'm not,
I'm still stuck, I'm still here, in this rut

Looking back on everything that we had
Holding on to words that we can't take back
What am I to do with the past, when it's all that I have,
And I can't get you back

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared
Once, oh, once

I remember you sayin' I was the one,
And nothing could change that but you were wrong
It's funny how life turns on a dime now we don't even talk
I just stare at these walls

And I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go I'm reminded of us
Where we've been all we've done and all the love that we shared
Once, you made the world feel so right
Once, you were my morning noon and night
Why'd we slip away, why did it all change,
How will I ever be the same

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

Should of been much further then this by now
A little bit more gone a little less twisted around
