​One by One

This song is by The Doobie Brothers and appears on the album One Step Closer (1980) and on the compilation Best of The Doobies Volume II (1981).

Where and why I'm destined to go
Right here and now that's all I know
On either side future or past
Neither is real both fade so fast

So one by one we're given these moments to live Just as one by one they're taken away
So one by one I'm taking each day in my stride
And one by one the memories stay

Good times are still there to find
When times are their worst
Keep your eyes open wide
'Cause through it all are moments that shine
And moments that glow
I'm gonna be there for mine

So one by one we're given these moments to live Just as one by one they're taken away
So one by one I'm taking each day in my stride
And one by one the memories stay

Even when you're close to a dream
It can still let you down
You'll always have a chance to give up
So why do it now

So one by one we're given these moments to live Just as one by one they're taken away
So one by one I'm taking each day in my stride
And one by one the memories stay
