Chance (Dub) - R.E.M.


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




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




Guys, this is very tedious stop!
