  • Lyrics
  • 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 roll away from me
    Chances are all they hope to be

    Don't get me wrong I'd never say never
    'Cause though love can change the weather
    No act of God can 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 see us through, yeah

    Chances are we'll find two destinations
    Chances roll away from me
    Still chances are more than expectations
    The possibilities over me

    It's a fight with 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 breathe, you gotta cry before you sing

    Chances lost are hope's torn up pages
    Maybe this time

    Chances are we'll be the combination
    Chances come and carry me
    Chances are waiting to be taken, and I can see

    Chances are the fascinations
    Chances won't escape from me
    Chances are only what we make them and all I needWriter/s: JOHN ONDRASIK, GREGG WATTENBERG
