Chances

Story Behind The Song

"Chances" was the musical result of an emotionally painful breakup with my ex-fiance. That was way back in 1981! Now that I'm a newlywed, hopefully there won't be any more lyrics with this subject matter. :-)

Song Description

Chances spans genres with the music and rhythm giving a romantic pop feel to lyrics that would leave no dry eyes in Nashville. The entire composition also has a much deeper feeling that accompanies the more obvious themes, and leaves the listener in contemplation about those moments when chance causes a turn in life's path that has unexpected consequences. A great song to dance slowly to when you are holding your lover close.

Lyrics

Going through some changes in my life.
Wondering if I'll ever get it right.
Wishing you were here by my side.
Wondering where we'd be right now if I hadn't lied.

But I had my chances
And I threw them all away.
And though you won't believe me
I love you more each day.

Going through some memories of our past.
Wondering if we ever could have made it last.
Wishing things were different than they are.
Wondering if we could have reached that shining star.

But I had my chances
And I threw them all away.
And though you won't believe me
I love you more each day.

Going through some daydreams in my mind.
Wondering how I ever could have been so blind.
Wishing that you'd trust me just once more.
'Cause you see I love you more than I ever did before.

But I had my chances
And I threw them all away.
And though you won't believe me
I love you more each day.

And though you won't believe me
I love you more each day.
