Once Lyrics

by Pearl Jam

I admit it
What's to say, what
I'll relive it
Without pain, mmmm

Backstreet lover on the side of the road
I got a bomb in my temple that is gonna explode
I got sixteen gauge buried under my clothes, I play

Once upon a time I could control myself
Once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah

Oh, try and mimic
What's insane
I am in it
Where do I stand?
Stand, stand

Indian summer and I hate the heat
I got a backstreet lover on the passenger seat
I got my hand in my pocket, so determined, discreet, I pray
Once upon a time I could control myself
Once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah yeah yeah

Once upon a time I could control myself
Once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah yeah yeah
Once, upon a time I could love myself
Once upon a time I could love you

Once, once
Once, once
Once, once
Yeah
