Chances Are - Robert Downey Jr & Vonda Shepard

I will never forget the movie CHANCES ARE, also starred by Robert Downey, Jr. That was an old movie back in the 90s.  This song, however is another story.  It just talks about "who knows" as opposed to a planned life.

I have always planned my life because that's what I learned from my mentor.  Somewhere, however, I had to abandon some of those plans not because chances are, I may fail, but because something unplanned came up.  I do not regret planning my life, despite uncertainties of fate.  I just have too much to consider and plan for so I am living life as it comes right now.  But we cannot stay that way for long.  No matter what fate brings us, we still should be ready, to at least cope with our current situation.

I have committed myself to someone and what if that commitment doesn't seem to work out because of numerous humps and bumps along the way? Do we wait til timelines become aligned with the heart's desires? Then how long shall we wait? Ohh, who knows, ayt?


Lyrics of the song
CHANCES ARE
Robert Downey Jr & Vonda Shepard

Chances are you'll find me
somewhere on your road tonight
Seems I always end up driving by

Ever since I've known you
It just seems you're on my way
All the rules of logic don't apply

I long to see you in the night

Be with you 'till the morning light...

I remember clearly
how you looked the night we met
I recall your laughter and your smile

I remember how
you made me feel so at ease
I remember all your grace and style

And now you're all I long to see
you've come to mean so much to me...

Chances are I'll see you
somewhere in my dreams tonight
You'll be smiling like the night we met

Chances are I'll hold you
an I'll offer all I have
You're the only one I can't forget

Baby you're the best I've ever met...

And I'll be dreaming ot the future...

... hoping you'll be by my side.

And in the morning I'd be longing for the night
for the night...

Chances are I'll see you
somewhere in my dreams tonight
You'll be smiling like the night we met

Chances are I'll hold you
and I'll offer all I have
You're the only one I can't forget

Baby you're the best I've ever met...
