You're so scared to fall in love
Cuz you end up in the dust
Everytime everytime...

Now you see us all the same
Like our words are just a game
Spitting lies, dirty lies

I know, you know
There's something here
But you cannot get past the fear
I can help you make it clear...

So when you feel like trying again
Reach out, take my hand
See how great it could be
To fall in love, with someone you can trust

Who would never give up
Cause you're all that he needs
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh oh

You give 100% but you've never seen a cent
They're so blind, they're so blind
Cuz I'm looking at your face
And the world's a better place
In your eyes, lovely eyes

I know you know
There's something here
But you cannot get past the fear

I can help you make it clear...

So when you feel like trying again
Reach out, take my hand
So how great it could be
To fall in love with someone you can trust

Who would never give up
Cuz you're all that he needs
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh oh

You got nothing to lose baby,
But you won't know if you don't try
Please don't leave me asking why
So when you're ready to choose baby
I'll be here with open arms
With the same in love in my heart

So when you feel like trying again
Reach out, take my hand
So how great it could be
To fall in love with someone you can trust

Who would never give up
Cuz you're all that he needs
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh
Baby take a chance on me
Baby take a chance on, oh oh oh

So when you feel like trying again...

    He's addressing a girl that's been hurt by multiple guys; he's giving her space and time, and wants her to see that not all dudes are the same. He wants her to be open, take a chance and see that things can change, that she could be happy with him.

    This has a whole new meaning 2 me, i split with my girl of 6 yrs we have 2 kids she suffers from depression and this the whole reason we broke, she suffered lots in her life and trusts very few people and has now forgotten how to love. Dont want to get into the personal side of it and all the stuff shes done over these last few months but this song is basically what i tell her coz i know the persona she truly is.

    The girl has been hurt by her ex really bad so she's scared to love again, but he sees this, and hates watching her getting her heart broken over and over again so that's left her scared, he wants her to give him a chance and prove his loves different and secure, gives her hope
