[F]Have you ever[Am] given all the l[Dm]ove you can?
[F]Have you ever[Am] wanted to be a [Dm]real man?
[F]Have you ever[Am] held your sweet[Dm] love in your [Bb]arms?
No, but all [Bb]I want is a c[Bb]hance.
There she stands like a mountain of fire,
Setting my heart aflame and the flames are rising higher
Think I'll burn mnyself up, if I don't get her love,
Lord, all I want is a chance.
How many times has a man felt this way
With her head of boiling lead and his feet made of clay
If I don't get her love then I don't know which way,
Oh Lord, give me just one more chance
Every time I gaze on her face
I think of the passion inside and I bow in disgrace
I wish I could be just half a man
Oh Lord, give me just one more chance.
