Lookin' back, on the memory of
The dance we shared, beneath the stars above
For a moment, all the world was right
How could I have known, that you’d ever say goodbye

And now, I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives, are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain, but I’da had to miss, the dance

Holding you, I held everything
For a moment, wasn’t I a king
But if I’d only known, how the king would fall
Hey, who’s to say, you know I might have changed it all

And now, I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives, are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain, but I’da had to miss, the dance

Yes, my life, it’s better left to chance
I could’ve missed the pain, but I’da had to miss, the dance
