Song Description

the singer of the song talks to her lover and expresses her anguish that their relationship is most likely over. She can't fully let go yet, but knows in her heart that he's not going to stick around. She's thinking of all that might have been and now won't be.

Lyrics

Taunting chance, dicing with death
Like a circus trapeze
You are dancing with fate
God you do it with such ease
And what a strange journey we are on
Always believing you can't be a loser for long
I dream an old woman's dreams
Filled with memories and might-have-beens

Chances are you'll leave me
Standing in the rain
Chances are you'll wait for it
To dawn on me again
Chances are it is done
All is lost and you've run

Talk is cheap and rumours fly
You've got your friends and I've got mine
This heart is tattered and torn
Got to wring it free of this bitterness and scorn
And there's neither enough sun nor enough rain
But there's all four seasons in one day
I dream an old woman's dreams
Filled with memories and might-have-beens
