Another Chance Gone

He could've been a saviour, he could've been a king

He could've been a healer with the gift of life to bring
He could've been at home when someone set the bomb
But now another chance has gone

 

She might've been a poet, she might've been a clown
She might've had a story to turn the whole world around
She might've been home dreaming when the madman came along
But now another chance has gone

 

Another chance cast out into the fickle winds of fate
Kiss the dice, take another throw
Another chance washed away like water down a drain
It's too late now, and we'll never know

 

He might've been teacher, he might've saved some souls
He might've fed the hungry, had the power to console
But the wrong side of the track is where he came from
And now another chance is gone

 

She might've been singer in a rock 'n' roll band
She might've painted paradise and put it in our hands
But we'll never see the picture and we'll never hear the song
Because another chance is gone

 

Another chance cast out into the fickle winds of fate
Kiss the dice, take another throw
Another chance washed away like water down a drain
It's too late now, and we'll never know

 

He could've been a saviour
