Just Once  Original key - C  Lower key - G
Quincy Jones featuring James Ingram

I did my best, But I guess my best wasn't good enough
`Cause here we are back where we were before.
Seems nothing ever changes--
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we ought to stay or head on out the door.

    Just once, can we figure out
    What we keep doing wrong,
    Why we never last for very wrong,
    What are we doing wrong?
    Just once, can't we find a way to finally make it right,
    To make the magic last for more than just one night.
    If we could just get to it,
    I know we could break through it.

I gave my all, But I think my all may have been too much
`Cause Lord knows, we're not getting anywhere.
Seems we're always blowing, Whatever we've got going'
And it seems at times with all we've got
We haven't got a prayer.

I want to understand, Why it always comes back to goodbye.
Why can't we get ourselves in hand, And admit to one another
We're no good without each other?, Take the best and make it better,
Find a way to stay together.
