I felt it.
The wire touched my neck and
Then someone pulled it tighter
I never saw it coming
I started to black out and
Then someone said good morning
I took it as a warning
I should have seen it coming
So now I'll take a chance on
This thing we may have started
Intentional or not I
Don't think we saw it coming
It's all adding up to something
That as of some involvement
That as for our commitment
I think I see it coming
If we step out of that limb

My heart beat, beats me senselessly
Why's everything got to be so intense with me
I'm trying to handle all these unpredictability
In all probability

It's a long shot so I say why not
If I say forget it I no that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if we don't take they're be no chance
But you're the best I got
So take the long shot

I realize that there is all this starting
That we're both scared about but
We'll never see them coming
Throw caution to the wind and
We'll see which way it's blowing
And to this pulling on
We'll never see it coming
Until it's much to close to stop

My heart beat, beats me senselessly
Why's everything got to be so intense with me
I'm trying to handle all these unpredictability
And all probability

It's a long shot but I say why not
If I say forget it
I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it there's no chance
'Cause I'm the best you got
So take the long shot

What a pleasant surprise what a breath of fresh air
You knock the wind out of me
Blindsided and so unaware

Ahaa, ahaa, ahaa,

Oh I waited for fact to come of fiction
And you fit my description
I never saw you coming
But we'll make it even though

It's a long shot but I say why not
If I say forget it
I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it there's no chance
'Cause you're the best I got
So take the long shot

You didn't expect this
Oh you never saw me coming
You didn't expect this
Oh you never saw this coming

I take the long shot
I take the long shot, shot, shot, shot, shot
'Cause you're the best I got

Oh I'm take this chance on you baby
I'm take this chance on you baby
I'm taking this chance

    guys katy perry wrote this song like a few years ago, she has improved alot since then. I think considering that this was in the earlier stages of her career that it's pretty good, and also remember that kelly clarkson's version is editted too and you can tell from katy perry's video that money was probably not what she had alot of at that time to edit and perfect her song.
    i love this katy's version especially since her previous songs show her personality
    (btw) im not saying kelly's version is bad, i just dont wanna compare the two because they are both great

    Katy Perry didn't write this song...Matt Thiessen (Relient K) wrote it for her when they dated she just preformed it. and kelly clarkson didn't steal the song she just did a cover for it...

    It’s a long shot but I say why not
    If I say forget it
    I know that I’ll regret it
    It’s a long shot just to beat the odds
    The chance is we won't make it but i know if i don't take it there's no chance
    Cuz I’m the best you got
    So take the long shot
