Melissa Ferrick – Fighting Chance lyrics

You go to sit down at this table
Yeah and where everything looks fine
Till you go to put your arms down and realize
That one of them is just a little too shy
So you're bending over now with your folded up
Gonna try to steady yourself
Waitress comes and puts your coffee down
You just spill it all over yourself
If this is as hard as it gets
You've got a fighting chance

So you think to yourself if I start my day over
Yeah starting right now
Then you grab your to go cup you got for free
You feel a familiar hand on your shoulder
Turn around, it's your ex
Smiling like she never left you
For your best friend three years before
You think what now

All of your weight on the door
If this is as hard as it gets
You've got a fighting chance

So you push off, yeah towards your apartment
On the corner above that liquor store
28 days away from the drink
Life is testing you more than you've been tested before
You are the bravest, newest person I've met
All of the answers are in you
Even if you haven't had the questions yet
You are the bravest, newest person I've met
And if this is as hard as it gets today
Yeah you've got a fighting chance

Cause I know it's hard
Your skin against this city
With all of your old friends at the bar
So if it's any consolation to you
I think fragile suits you
