One Last Time - Ariana Grande



The Experience: One Last Time has a catchy beat, but addresses the painful topic of betrayal as Ariana begs for another chance to be the one who takes you home after she has betrayed the one who loved her. 


Music video: Just the album cover audio track for now...


The Meaning: As Ariana sings I was a liar I gave into the fire she claims she is sorry for her mistakes, but further lines like Baby I don’t care if you got her in your heart All I really care is you wake up in my arms shows her sorrow is more about getting what she wants than true love for the other. She needs to be the one who takes you home, but will that really solve her problems? Maybe she needs to take a step back and ask herself what she really needs and if this obsession with this guy is really going to bring her the fulfillment she is looking for.

Ask yourself: Are my relationships about getting what I want or about seeking the best for the other person?

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

And I know, and I know, and I know 
She gives you everything but boy I couldn’t give it to you 
And I know, and I know, and I know 
That you got everything 
But I got nothing here without you

So one last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 
One more time 
I promise after that, I’ll let you go 
Baby I don’t care if you got her in your heart 
All I really care is you wake up in my arms 
One last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 

I don’t deserve it 
I know I don’t deserve it 
But stay with me a minute 
I’ll swear I’ll make it worth it 
Can’t you forgive me 
At least just temporarily 
I know that this is my fault 
I should have been more careful

And I know, and I know, and I know 
She gives you everything but boy I couldn’t give it to you 
And I know, and I know, and I know 
That you got everything 
But I got nothing here without you baby

So one last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 
One more time 
I promise after that, I’ll let you go 
Baby I don’t care if you got her in your heart 
All I really care is you wake up in my arms 
One last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 

I know I should've fought it 
At least I’m being honest 
Just stay with me a minute 
I swear I’ll make it worth it baby
Cause I don’t want to be with you 

So one last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 
One more time
I promise after that, I’ll let you go 
Baby I don’t care if you got her in your heart 
All I really care is you wake up in my arms 
One last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home 

One last time 
I need to be the one who takes you home
