You made the call
I watched the door to see you coming through
And every time
It was cold September wind that blew
Then on the air that drifted
In the fated smell of denial
See, I don't know so I won't ask
I think its best that way
Can't be held responsible for what you didn't say
So let's pretend that I'm not me and its
Not you for a while
This cigarette I'm pulling on
That second pint that's nearly gone
This hand that's sliding down my leg

[Chorus]
If there's one right thing you've got to do
Don't do it tonight
And for once enjoy the view just out of the light
If there's one last kiss we've got to have
Let's have it tomorrow
It's a longshot, but a chance I've got to take

It's fair to mention from the first that
When you touched me there
You're starting something that I'll finish
So just be aware
And if you mention one more time we
Could be soul mates I'll die
It's easy now when I look back, they
Call that "retrospect"
If I had known that night would have
Such a ripple effect
I might've been more likely just to let
That sleeping dog lie
This TV set we're dueling on
My fighting words are nearly gone
There's something sliding down my leg

[Chorus]

I foresaw the day when you would come
And make it clear
Some things do better where you found
Them so we'll just leave it here
I'm only crying cause this cloud of
Smoke is burning my eyes
And ever since the times when I am
Standing close to you
I see the person that you are
The one I never knew
Do you ever feel me or are you too high
Ready get set here we go
What's been going on? I don't know
I've been standing tall on my last leg

[Chorus]

A longshot, from a world away
In a time slot, on a passing day
You're a longshot, but a chance I've got to take
