I wanna stand upon a rock and watch the river flow
With the blue sky above me and the valley down below
I wanna hold my head up high, listen to the wind
'Cause when it's gone it won't be back again

I wanna sing the kind of songs that my dad sang to me
And try to be the man he hoped that I would be
He said you only get one chance, you'd better do the best you can
'Cause when it's gone it won't be back again

I wanna wear my Sunday coat and hold your hand in mine
And hear you say you'll love me until the end of time
I wanna find forever in every moment that we spend
'Cause when it's gone it won't be back again

I wanna wear my Sunday coat and hold your hand in mine
And hear you say you'll love me until the end of time

I wanna stand upon a rock like I did when I was young
And hold you close beside me and watch our children run
'Cause you only get one chance to listen to the wind
And when it's gone it won't be back again

We only get one chance, so listen to the wind
'Cause when it's gone it won't be back again
Yeah, when it's gone it won't be back again
