One Moment In Time

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one but not alone
My finest day is yet unknown
I broke my heart for every gain
To taste the sweet I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

Give me one moment in time
(First chorus: I want one moment in time)
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel, I will feel eternity
(Last chorus: I will be (2x), I will be free (2x))

I've lived to be the very best
I want it all, no time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands


You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine


Written by Albert Hammond and John Bettis
