Once in a Lifetime is the fifteenth track from One Direction's album Four.

Critical Reception

WKCO stated: "This song is very simple, pared down just to vocals and guitars. Its minor tone seems too heavy, but it also makes it sound more like a product of a 90s boy band. It includes rich harmonies and showcases the band’s vocals in their purest state. It isn’t bad by any means; it is just lost in the absolutely radiant gems surrounding it."

Lyrics

[Liam]
Once in a lifetime
It's just right
We make no mistakes
Not even the landslide or riptide
Could take it all the way

[Harry]
Somehow, I feel like nothings has changed
Right now, my heart is beating the same
Out loud, someone's calling my name

It sounds like you

[All]
When I close my eyes
All the stars align
And you are by my side
You are by my side

[Louis]
Once in a lifetime
It's just right
That we are always safe

[Niall]
Not even the bad guys in the dark night
Could take it all away

[Louis]
Somehow, I feel like nothings has changed
Right now, my heart is beating the same

[Niall]
Out loud, someone's calling my name

It sounds like you

[All]
When I close my eyes
All the stars align
And you are by my side
You are by my side
You are by my side

[Liam]
Once in a lifetime you were mine
