Lyrics:
         G             C
Looking back on the memory of  
      D                          C         D
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
       G               C            
For a moment all the world was right
          D                        C            D
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

     C                      D
And now I'm glad I didn't know
                      Bm7                      C D
The way it all would end the way it all would go
      C                       D  
Our lives are better left to chance
                         Bm7
I could have missed the pain
                   C    D    G
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey, who's to say you know I might have chanced it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes, my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
