One Last Time Lyrics

Play "One Last Time"
on Amazon Music


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,...

    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 had fallen in love with someonez man bt then he decided to leav her coz his original girl found out about his affair with her...and she lied about some things so that she could keep the relationship going.

    This song resonates. It could refer to a any instance when you feel you didn’t do right by a lover.

    Loved this song NOT SEX but anyhow can interpret any song and relate to any situation. This song remind me of this person I had a mutual understanding relationship with. She came in unexpectedly and what’s worst I had no idea I could love the same sex. She showed me loved, prioritized me, and had romantic gestures. I am asking for ONE LAST TIME with her just to enjoy the last moment together with feelings exposed. I missed you ****. I did not know I loved you until I lost you

    For me this is about she started something with a guy who has a girlfriend ("Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart; all I really care is you wake up in my arms"), but the guy's girlfriend discovered them ("I know that this is my fault, I should've been more careful"). The guy is now sorry, but he can't keep the reltionship he had with her, because he is back with his original girlfriend (Whom I assume forgave him). This is why the lyric speaking asks the guy for one last time to hold him and be with him.

    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.

    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.
