Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: I Take My Chances
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]



I took a walk in the rain one day on the wrong side of the tracks

I stood on the rails till I saw that train

Just to see how my heart would react

Now some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate

And for them I would not disagree

But I never learned nothing from playing it safe

I say fate should not tempt me



I take my chances, I don't mind working without a net

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get



I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote

I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat

He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check

I flipped my channel back to CNN and I lit another cigarette



I take my chances, forgiveness doesn't come with a debt

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get



I've crossed lines of words and wire and both have cut me deep

I've been frozen out and I've been on fire and the tears are mine to weep

Now I can cry until I laugh and laugh until I cry

So cut the deck right in half, I'll play from either side



I take my chances, I pay my dollar and I place my bet

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I take my chances, I don't cling to remorse or regret

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I take my chances



I take my chances
