Lyrics[]

 Any other day and you might have gone walking by 
 Without a second look 
 Any other way but I'm still mystified 
 I'm just trying to change my luck
 Staring out the world awaiting for the one
 But the world won't look away
 The world does not explain
 
 So, what are the chances?
 We'll never know
 If we take it for granted
 The diamond explodes
 What are the chances?
 
 Playing with your life or is it destiny
 Which sets you on a path?
 Is it out of tries that you're here next to me
 Or just the aftermath
 Of moments as the past
 
 So, what are the chances?
 We'll never know
 If we take it for granted
 The diamond explodes
 What are the chances?
 We are last in the flow
 I'm looking for answers, oho
 
 So, what are the chances?
 We'll never know
 If we take it for granted
 The diamond explodes
 What are the chances?
 We are last in the flow
 I'm looking for answers, oho
<< "Danceophobia" "Sunset Garage" >>
