Chance Lyrics

by REM

Chance, chance, chance, chance
Friday bank card, yours got stuck
I loaned you a phone quarter, said, "Good luck
Where are you now?

Me and glasses, Saturday slump
You and your shopping, I looked up
Our eyes met, mine are green
You'd had a peroxide thing
Call now, look me up

Sunday walk, weaver's park
I was on the lakeside
Where the playgrounds meet
In bare feet

You said, "Mighty cold today
You never see what I think
You didn't like your daytime job
I was born to travel

You were a camera, I dropped my keys
I'm on the northbound, you were asleep
I said, "Are you holding?

You wanna ride the silent sky?
I wrote a story on the fly
You in the tabletop
I said, "I've had enough of the city

I held a bag of apples
You at the last table
I had had a soy dog
Cafe Streetside, Tuesday bloom
You wanna be on fire
I said, I hung the moon

Wednesday grocery, corner of vine
You were in the checkout line
I dropped my frozen dinners
You helped pick them up

Thursday cab rush, our block
You with broken accent
My heart stopped
You laughed, I worry

Chance, chance, chance, chance
Swarming like a dozen crushing blows
All those glances, midtime dances
Chance

I never looked it up
You hit the sidewalk talking
Said, "I'd read the ads, do you?

Where are you? will you read this?
Can I see?
This is surely moving faster
Than I can think

A minute shy, a passing eye
I know I saw you there
Will you read this? can I see?
What did I see?

Chance, chance, chance, chance
Swimming like a dozen crushing blows
All those midtime dances
Chance

Guys, this is very tedious, stop
