"Given The Chance" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
The minute before we play
I'm pacing waiting anxiously
I can't wait to hit the stage
And say hello to jersey

And when the last note rings
And when I've sung all I have to sing
Every minute I will count
Till the next show in the next town

What can I say
That can explain
All this time
I'm loving life

There's not a day
That I could say
All this time
I'm living out my...

The feeling is screaming out
The words of the things I think about
Hearing them coming back
From the crowds mouth is perfect

And when the curtains close
I'll realize how fast time could go
Thanks for everything
You know how much this means

What can I say
That can explain
All this time
I'm loving life

There's not a day
That I could say
All this time
I'm living out my dream

What this is to me
Is more than words could mean
I guess dreams do come true
This song itself is living proof

What this means to me
Is more than it may seem
I guess dreams do come true
This song itself is living proof

What this is to me
Is more than words could mean
I guess dreams do come true
This song itself is living proof

What can I say
That can explain
All this time
I'm loving life

There's not a day
That I could say
All this time
I'm singing out

Singing a song about
A dream that has come true

    General Commentyeah i've listened to the whole album and it is completely kick-ass. you can hear it all at mp3.com. really bad quality sound but it is so amazing. they have new versions of old songs that i love also. this song is completely rad and it's the perfect anthem for anyone in a band. ROCK ON starting line owns.

    General Commentalso, this shows that these guys aren't self-absorbed assholes. they appreciate everything they're getting to do and they should get respect automatically from everyone just for that. not to mention making genious music.
