Flowers of Chance

Drew James © 2008

 

I’ve been rained out when it didn’t even rain

I’ve been railroaded without stepping on a train

I’ve been burned bad where there wasn’t any flames

 

I’ve been tied down where there wasn’t any rope

I’ve been cleaned out where there wasn’t any soap

But I’m still hopeful though I'm running out of hope

 

I’m taking shelter down an oak shadowed road

And leave my poisons to dry up in the sun

Today is the day I will lighten my load

An empty promise can still weigh a ton

I wrestled the devil for a flower of chance

I’m tired of trying to please somebody someplace else

 

(Musical Interlude)

 

I’ve been shot down where there wasn’t any guns

Came in last place before a race was run

But I’m still singing this song no others have sung

 

(Chorus)

 

The flowers of chance are not just black and white

But every color in between

I finally found one and I know that it's right

Cause it matches the color of my dreams

 

I wrestled the devil for a flower of chance

One that’s right for me

Not somebody someplace else

One that’s right for me

Not somebody someplace else
