Ghost of a Chance           

by John Flynn

 

 

Among the silent sentries that guard this empty house

 

A vision bright with memories in tears still seeks you out                         

Among a room's possessions where shades are drawn to mourn


My heart is asked the questions from which some hope takes form    

 

(chorus)

I'm being haunted by the ghost of a chance  I

 

Hear strains of music from a long ago dance

 

Could we rekindle the flames of romance I'm being

 

Haunted by the ghost of a chance

 

Sometimes it stares right at me from some old photograph

 

The way we looked so happy the old familiar laughs

I turn to other spirits to wash away my pain

 

But late at night I hear it rattle freedom's chains

 

 

(chorus)

I'm being haunted by the ghost of a chance  I

 

Hear strains of music from a long ago dance

 

 

Could we rekindle the flames of romance I'm being

 

 

Haunted by the ghost of a chance

 

(bridge)

So darlin' plea- ee-  ee-  ease 

This love of mine won't rest in pea-  ee- ee- ee- ee- ee- eace

 

I'm being haunted by the ghost of a chance  I

 

Hear strains of music from a long ago dance

 

Could we rekindle the flames of romance I'm being

 

Haunted by the ghost of a chance

 

I'm being haunted by the ghost of a chance  I

 

Hear strains of music from a long ago dance

 

Could we rekindle the flames of romance I'm being

 

Haunted by the ghost of a chance
