Five for Fighting — 'Chances'
Chances are, when said and done,
Who'll be the lucky ones,
Who make it all the way?
Though you say I could be your answer,
Nothing lasts forever,
No matter how it feels today.
Chances are, we'll find a new equation,
Chances run away from me,
Chances are all they hope to be.
Don't get me wrong, I never say never,
'Cause though love can't change the weather,
No act of God could pull me away from you.
I'm just a realistic man,
A bottle filled with shells and sand,
Afraid to love beyond what I can lose.
When it comes to you,
And though I'll see us through, yeah...
Chances are, we'll find two destinations,
Chances run away from me.
Still, chances are more than expectations,
And possibilities ... over me.
Eight to five, or two to one,
Lay your money on the sun,
Until you crash, what have you done?
Is there a better bet than love?
What you are is what you bring,
You gotta cry before you see chances,
Chances lost our hopes, torn out pages,
Maybe this time...
Chances are we'll be the combination,
Chances come and carry me.
Chances are waiting 'till they take it,
And I can see...
Chances are the fascination,
Chances won't escape from me.
Chances are only what we're living,
And all I need.
