Lyrics

Take A Chance

Written By: Margaret M. O'Brien

I see you almost every day
and you smile at me.
Working out what I'm gonna say, to impress you.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

I see the way that you treat your friends, looks good to me.
I think that I would like to spend time with you.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You seem to radiate from deep within, a loving soul.
Heart strings playing like a violin, vibrations.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You may have lost at love in the past, so you have doubts.
But I know that we can make it last, this time.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You know it's been awhile for me, but i'm eager to.
Try this love thing on and see, where it leads to.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

So the next time that I see you, coming down my street.
Gonna introduce myself, so we can meet.
Oooohhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

Chorus:
Because I am so tired of being alone.
Want a sweet lovin' man to call my own.
Enjoy the riches that love can bestow.
Hearts of gold can give off a glow.
Let your feelings show.
Let me know.
Let me know.
Let me know.

Long Way Home

Written By: Margaret O'Brien

There are some lazy days when you feel like,
Taking the long way home.
Want them to ramble on and on and on.

There are some songs that make you feel like,
Taking the long way home.
Just want to ramble on and on and on.

There are some friends that when you're with them,
You take the long way home.
So you can ramble on and on and on.

There are some places deep within your heart,
That take the long way home.
And you will ramble on and on and on.

When lovers meet their hands are holding,
They take the long way home.
So they can ramble on and on and on.

When you're having a sweet dream you try to,
Take the long way home.
So you can ramble on and on and on.

Chorus:
And when it's good, well you just know it.
It's like the sun coming out.
And when it shines well you can rise up high,
Until you float back to the ground.

It's Been Awhile

Written By: Margaret M. O'Brien

Found myself walking down this lonesome road tonight.
The air is crisp and the stars are shining oh so bright.
Bundled up close against the evening chill,
And my heart is wandering,
It is opening up and these
Thoughts seem to drift about at will.

And it’s time to be looking back, the past to comprehend
Another year slowly rolling to an end.
As though pondering the things that you’d rather forget
Would make them go away
Just up and blow away
Never more to hurt and no regrets.

I’d say this year was pretty good, all and all
There were some up and down days, as I recall
And I’m still kicking, well, you know me
‘Cause who knows what lies ahead.
Each day you just get out of bed.
‘Cause who knows what the future will bring.

Well I guess it’s time to be turning ‘round for home.
Think I’ll build a fire and let my heart keep roaming
‘Cause these tears are freezing my eyelashes and I can’t see
But oh darling, now
My sweet darling, hold me
Baby, what you meant to me.

Chorus:
And it’s been awhile since I called out your name
In the middle of the night
And it’s been awhile since I saw your sweet smiling face
Telling me that it’s gonna be alright
