One Last Time Lyrics


I was a liar
I gave into the fire
I know I should've fought it
At least I'm being honest
Feel like a failure
'Cause I know that I failed you
I should've done you better
'Cause you don't want a liar (come on)

And I know, and I know,...

    This song is about a girl who cheated on a guy and now just wants to sleep with him.
    The language is obvious that this is what she means. She knows he has a new girl that is actually good to him, but she wants to pull him away from that to have sex with him. understanding her blame and wrongdoing, while simultaneously trying to absolve it, "at least I'm being honest".

    It's amazing how many of you interpreters grasp at straws. This song is literally awful in its message. Music is good tho.

    I took your love for granted. I should have fought for us, I should have fought against my own demons for us but I gave in. I gave in to the cheating and lying, but despite it all I just want to lay in your arms tonight. I want to wake up next you One last time. I need to be with you one last time.

    Listening to the song the one thing that comes to my mind is her asking for the forgiveness of God even though she is a sinner and "Doesn't deserve it." Many lyrics in the song say this such as "I was a liar
    I gave into the fire
    I know I should've fought it
    At least I'm being honest
    Feel like a failure
    'Cause I know that I failed you
    I should've done you better." The lyrics say how she felt like she let God down by some of her sinful actions and now is asking for one last chance at forgiveness and she will try to be a better follower if he grants her forgiveness.

    She cheated.
    She's sorry.
    She regrets what she's done & insists on seeing him for one last time.

    Even if its just for one night. She wants him to wake up in her arms for one last time.

    Its like a goodbye thing.

    I think she gave her soul to the devil and she's asking for forgiveness from God.....

    From what I understand, this song about her lying or possibly cheating on the guy she loves and he ends up leaving her but she regrets what she did to him. She wants one last time with him but he already has a someone who gives him everything he's ever wanted.

    This is about spending time with your loved ones for the last time and doing whatever you love for the last time

    I belive that She can do what she wants, but this boy has to decided if he wants or not.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think she "gave into the fire," Means she cheated on him. Because she "should've fought it." I actually do believe think it's about sex. I see it as, this isn't going to work, she did something to him, and wants one last time with him. "As long as you wakeup in my arms." I think refers to the morning after.

    people believe that she is a satanist.'i was a liar,i gave into the FIRE'.she gave her soul to the devil.'she is probably asking for one last time with God and for Him to forgive her.

    I think this song is about spending one more day with the person she loves, even if they have to pretend she did not tell a lie of some kind.

    To have one last time with the one she loves before they go off with the one he loves, she wants to spend one last time with the she loves but cannot have.

    I GET PISSED WHEN EVERYONE THINKS IS ABOUT SEX! IT'S NOT ABOUT SEX! SHE WANTS TO SPEND ONE LAST TIME WITH THE ONE SHE LOVES!!! IF THIS SONG WAS ABOUT SEX THEN WHY DIDN'T IT HAVE SEX IN IT'S MUSIC VIDEO!?!!?! WHY DOES EVERY DISNEY CROSSOVER HAVE NO SEX IN THE VIDEOS!?!?! THIS SONG IS NOT ABOUT SEX!!! IT'S ABOUT SPENDING ONE LAST TIME WITH THE ONE YOU LOVE!!

    she lied and he left her.
    he is now with a new girl who gives him what he wanted.
    she regretted lying and insisted for one last time to hold him.
    she doesnt care about the girl he is now with.
    all she really wants now is one last chance.

    She knows that the relationship will not work out because he has someone else but she wants to hold him one last time because she can't bare to be alone without him.
