Once In A While

Aretha Franklin 2008

My soul can't last, my soul can't last

Once in a while I will dream dear
Knowin' dreams will seldom come true
Yes, but once in a while I will dream dear
And I hope you'll be thinkin' of me too

Yes, I must confess that I will miss you
Like the stars would miss the sky
Like a whale would miss its water
If it should ever happen to run dry

Although I cried when you left me
Yes, I cried for a year and a day
You know my soul can't last, my soul just can't last
Please answer me right away
