It's two am and this old bar is closing
He knows the partners
Have been chosen
But in the corner both
He spots lonely youth
And he catches her eye

And he moves fast
And says my name is Steven
Guess I blew my chance
Since everyone is leaving
She stands up to go, never says hello
But she never says goodbye

Then she smiles
And leans her head back
Towards the door
And as she takes his hand
His jaw falls to the floor

Now we all take chances
Every once in a while
We take chances
If it's just to ease our minds

We all take chances
Wrong or right
Ah ,but sometimes chances
Take us by surprise

Morning light comes
Shining throw her window
She wakes just in time to hear him go
She curls up in bed
Hands on her head
Tears in her eyes

She relives the night
They spend together
Shouts out loud
Lord knows I knew better
Then she hears a sound
Slips on her gown, takes a look outside

With coffee and flowers
He walks toward the door
And as he says good morning
Her jaw falls to the floor

Now we all take chances
Every once in a while
We take chances
If it's just to ease our minds

We all take chances
Wrong or right
Ah, but sometimes chances
Take us by surprise

Yeah, sometimes chances
Take us by surprise
