Take a Chance on Me

#56

 

TAKE A CHANCE ON ME

 

could you

would you

might you

take a chance on me

if only you did

I know though you eyes alone

you’d see

the man

the man

the man in me

and then

just maybe

in the bright sun of day

we’d be

just you and I

and you and I

just you and I

together

happily

 

Don’t fret

don’t worry

don’t let those bad feelings scurry

let me hold those broken pieces

of your heart

let me melt them back together

let me impart

the purity of my love and devotion

there’s nothing wrong with the essence of my motion

that I so want to give

to give

to give

to thee

Oh, come

Oh, come, now

don’t run from me

 

I know that I ain’t like the rest

I ain’t got no barrel of a chest

or arms like a weightlifter might have to see

I’m just

I’m just

I’m just me

come on, now

come on, now

baby

take a chance on me

 

when the rain comes down

the winds blow free

don’t you know that cross the sky I’d fly

and through the sea sailin’ I’d be

up some mountain with an Ice axe

looking for my treasure

there ain’t nothing partial about your measure

you are so much

so much everything

to me

come on, now

come on, now

baby

take a chance on me
