Written with Wake Up, Sunshine collaborators Zakk Cervini and Andrew Goldstein, the song is about loss and what comes after it. Frontman Alex Gaskarth explains:
“Once In A Lifetime is a song about loss and dealing with loss, facing harsh realities and coming out the other side stronger for it. We wrote this song in bleaker times, in a world still asleep at the wheel that left us all relearning how to navigate the uncertain roads ahead, but ultimately there is a hopeful undertone to the entire sentiment,” he continues. “Things can only be so bad and once it’s over, it’s over; there’s room to start rebuilding. This song feels like it’s cut from the same cloth as [chart-topping 2020 single] Monsters: a progression and continued evolution from the celebration of All Time Low that was Wake Up, Sunshine.”
