One Chance (Reprise)
Lyrics
Give me one chance (Reprise)
© 2011 Bruce Mills (SOCAN)

Every day is the same day
Today, tomorrow, and yesterday
Every song is the same song
Same melody - same words to sing

Every night is the same night
Dreams disappear in the moonlight
Same voices on the telephone
No words to say - no love to share

I need to take a chance - I got to take a chance to make it on my own
You have to let me go - it's time for me to go - to follow my soul
You know I'll always love you - and keep you in my heart
But try to understand, it's time for me to start to make a few mistakes - to find my way

I need to play the game - to play the game of chance - and play it by myself
To sail across the sea and find my destiny - it's waiting there somewhere
To find that special place on the road where I belong
To walk it by myself and prove that I am strong - to go as far as I was meant to go
Don't cry for me when I leave you, no, no, no
I'm giving you all the love I have

Every day is the same day
Today, tomorrow and yesterday
Every song is the same song
Same melody - same words (to sing)

Every night is the same night
Dreams gone up in the moonlight
Always talking on the telephone
Got no words to say - got no love, I got no love

I need to take a chance - I got to take a chance to make it on my own
To sail across the sea and find my destiny - it's waiting way over there
To find that special place where my heart and soul belong
To walk all by myself and prove that I am strong - to go as far as God above wants me to go
Oh, I said - let me go - you got to let me go
It's time for me to find my way
But promise me - you will always be
Waiting right there for me to return - oh

Trumpet solo

Everyday is the same day, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Today, tomorrow, just like yesterday
Every song is the same song
Same melody - same words, same words, same words to sing
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na ...
Description
Short Song Description:
Sweet, easy pop about leaving someone you love to take a chance at a bigger, better future
Long Song Description:
Kind of a familiar thing ... leaving home, leaving family, leaving lovers ... to move on into the great unknown world to take a chance at something maybe bigger and better - but maybe not - there's always that chance you'll return
