Chances are I took the wrong turn
Every time I had a turn to take
And I guess I broke my own heart
Every chance I had a heart to break

And it seems I spent my whole life
Wishin' on the same unlucky star
And as I watched you 'cross the bar room
I wonder what my chances are

Well, I know you've been around
And you've seen what you needed to see
And at night when you're dreamin'
You're probably not dreamin' 'bout me

Oh, it's safe to say I've stumbled
But I've managed to make it through this fall
As I take one step and then another
I wonder what my chances are

I have watched the world go by, hand in hand
And wondered why I'm still so alone
Could I lay down my foolish pride
And maybe finally find my heart a home

The band has started playing
A simple songs I used to know
And I take your hand and walk you out
Danced through the rhythm way down low

Every heart has got a story
Mine just has few more scars
But they could heal if you will hold me
And tell me what my chances are
Well, it could heal if you will hold me
And tell me what my chances are
