You Only Paint The Picture Once Lyrics

by Alabama

Look at those evening shadows
Casting a peaceful light
The sun is disappearing
It's a beautiful sight

Moments caught forever
By the master's touch
A lasting reminder
To us

You only paint the picture once
You only get one chance
Take the time to do your best
While the brush is in your hand

Make sure it's just right
Before the colors dry
You can't change it once it's done
You only paint the picture once

Love is the canvas
That's where it all starts
A lifetime together
Becomes a work of art

Just look what's been created
Between your heart and mine
Oh I believe
That we're one of a kind

You only paint the picture once
And you only get one chance
Take the time to do your best
While the brush is in your hand

Make sure it's just right
Before the colors dry
You can't change it once it's done
You only paint the picture once

It's a portrait of life, you can't live it twice
You only paint the picture once
