Second Chances

I was trying to find the official lyrics for this song but was not lucky to find one, so I tried to transcribed it myself instead. Pls feel free to correct if you found errors with the lyrics.



"Second Chances" by Lea Salonga
(a song from Allegiance, a new Broadway-bound Musical)



When emptiness is all there is to see,
The joy that you once knew, a distant memory.
When the purpose of each morning is forgotten with each night,
And it doesn't seem to matter if you give up or you fight.

Look again, that is when your world's about to change.
Nothing in life is so permanent that love can't re-arrange.

Second chances
Life is rich with second chances,
Second songs with second dances, second melodies.
For if you've only got one shot, if once or nothing's all you've got,
Your days would just be filled with single moments, single memories.
But I believe hearts can conceive of more than one bright happy ending
Roads may split in two, you can't go down both in advance.
We know and yet we still forget our paths are never so unbending,
Life has given you a second chance.

Second chances
The world provides with second chances.
New adventures, new romances, new responsibilities.
For if you're always looking back, your eyes might miss the second track
You take no chances, seize no day, live no possibilities.
But hearts desire, hearts afire, ablaze you grow from a single ember,
Yesterday turns toward tomorrow, a brand new circumstance.

What's past is past but it's not the last
We're not alive to just remember.
When life has said to you,
Not a chance, but two...
Life has granted you a second chance.
