Ariana Grande - One Last Time

[Verse 1]
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)

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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
(come on)

[Pre-Chorus]
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


[Chorus]
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

[Bridge]
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
Cause I don't want to be without you


[Chorus]
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

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

“One Last Time” finds Ariana admitting to being unfaithful. Even though she knows she’s in the wrong and doesn’t deserve to get her ex-boyfriend back, she wants to spend one more night with him as her final goodbye. A part of her also hopes that after one more night together, he will be able to forgive her and take her back. Rumour has it this song was written about Ariana’s affair with Nathan Sykes from The Wanted. Her boyfriend at the time of this affair was Jai Brooks from the Janoskians. The chemistry between Ariana and her secret forbidden lover supposedly began brewing when they created the song and filmed the music video for “Almost is Never Enough” together. After the Manchester terrorist attacks on 22 May 2017, Ariana’s fans redefined the meaning of this song and got it back in the charts to remember the 22 fans who sadly lost their lives at her concert that night.
