FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE
Ella Fitzgerald

Someone I've needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me

Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Could make my dreams come true

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before
For once I've got someone I know won't desert me
And I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say: this is mine you can't take it
As long as I've got love I know I can make it
For once in my life I've got someone who needs me
