​Ten Chances

This song is by Steve Poltz.

I only had one minute
Left on my calling card
I was halfway around the world
And it was raining, really hard

I only had a couple of aspirin
And a half a can of beer
So I swallowed it down for courage
But it was still pretty hard to hear

'Cause I only had three words
That I wanted to tell you
But it would be easier if you were here
And I could smell ya

Words are fallin' out, I know
They drift, they pass, they melt like snow
And I know I may be a flake
I scrape my knees and make mistakes

I may lose but mostly win
Sometimes I get soaked in sin
But I fall right back into your arms again

So I ordered four pints of Guinness
And I set 'em on a trunk
Had a long conversation
With a hopeless drunk

'Cause I only had five tickets
And six new friends
And one of 'em had a hissy fit
And drove off with Mercedes Benz

Words are fallin' out, I know
They drift, they pass, they melt like snow
I know I may be a flake
I scrape my knees and make mistakes

I may lose but mostly win
Sometimes I get soaked in sin
But I fall right back into your arms again

So we played seven-card stud
And I had a royal flush
And I took out your picture and I started to blush

'Cause I only had eight lives
Most cats got nine
So I skipped out on bungee jumping, just this time
'Cause I only had ten chances to say I love you

Words are fallin' out, I know
They drift, they pass, they melt like snow
I know I may be a flake
I scrape my knees and make mistakes

I may lose but mostly win
Sometimes I get drenched in sin
But I fall right back into your arms again

I collapse into your loving arms again
I fall right back into your arms again
