I wrote this song a little while ago and played it at my school’s coffee house. I really like the meaning behind it but I’m not sure if I want to explain what it is. I think not knowing the artist’s intent of a song allows it to take on new life with the listener and that is one of the reasons I love music so much. 

So I would love to hear what the song means to you! And then if you want to know, I can tell you what my inspiration for it was. (:

Chances

We were meant to find each other along the way

I suppose, cus it never seems to stray

From the stories we were told

There’s the princess oh with her stunning looks

There’s the hopeless kid from every book

We’re a mess to be made

You’re just waiting to be saved

She said I haven’t been able to trust for years

Since I was lied to and locked up with my tears

So please don’t hurt me, my dear

I said don’t you worry, I’m not that guy

I’m the hopeless and chanceless type

But I heard you needed to be saved

So I won’t go

If you won’t run away

She’s not really the type to believe in fate

But oh well, I suppose, the stories never change 

We were meant to meet that day

I got the princess now with her stunning looks

We’re a plot line fit for a book

I know you hate to stay

So why are you still the same

She said I hadn’t been able to trust for years

Till you came around and dried up my tears

Oh tell me again, my dear

I said don’t you worry, I’m not that guy

I’m the hopeless and chanceless type

But I heard you needed to be saved

So I won’t go

If you won’t run away

So I took my chances

And you never ran away
