Chances
The Strokes Lyrics


I waited for ya
I waited for ya
I waited on ya
But now I don't

You didn't see it
I didn't see it
I didn't see it
But now, oh, I do
I play your game
I play your game
Now
I play your game
I play your game

I take my chances alone
Get on your horse and be gone
I will not wait up for you anymore
So you can ask me if something is wrong
Will you go?
I don't know anymore

When the night isn't ready for you
It's a feeling I know that dogs you
They invited a stewardess, too
Now they want you to see it
Here's to days he decides he's got time
And when he claims that it's not a surprise
When he finds out the truth's on his side

I take my chances alone
Get on your horse and be gone
I will not wait up for you anymore
So you can ask me if something is wrong
Will you go?
I don't know anymore
I don't believe anyone
As they crawl out of my way

Waiting for the night
Leaving night by night
You can see me travel
We could be in trouble every night
We're having a new life

I waited for ya

they just dont seem to be able to make bad music. I can listen to every one of their albums without skipping a song.

Dan C

50/50 is the only song on any of their albums I skip. Not sure why but that song doesn't sit with me. The rest are all masterpieces though :)

Kid Goku

Same

Spiralmind

Me too. Very few bands can achieve that on me.

Elidi Abbots

It's Fluff i kinda like the experimentalist nature of you’re so right but it triggers my anxiety so i just don’t listen to it

lisa evon

When I got their first album, I did not want to hear anything else. It was pretty much the only album in my CD player for about 6 months straight. Love-love-love them.
