"A Chance" as written by Royce Porter and Dean Dillon....
Girl, don't you know it's all I can do
To keep my hands off of you
Anytime you're around
And when the stars come out at night
I dream of holdin' you tight
Every time I lay down
It feels so good to me to have you this bad
The only other thing I wish I had was

A chance
A chance
To tell you how I feel about you
How it feels to live without a chance
A chance
To tell you I'll love you forever
Knowing that I'll never have a chance

Sometimes reality hurts
And you wonder if life's worth living at all
Knowing no matter how much you care
You'll never have a prayer
Of having what you want
At least I've been close enough I could taste
Beauty at it's best but never a trace of

A chance
A chance
To tell you how I feel about you
How it feels to live without a chance
A chance
To tell you I'll love you forever
Knowing that I'll never have a chance

A chance
A chance
To tell you I'll love you forever
Knowing that I'll never have
The chance

    General CommentWhat does he mean with: "It feels so good to me to have you this bad"? I'd understand "it feels so good to me to have you in (this) bed" or even "it feels so good to me to hate you this bad" - though that last one is very strange too in the context.
    It might be that he means that he can have the girl in a bad way - meaning in a way without any love.

    And what is "it", which he does to keep his hands of her?

    General Comment@tugit: I don't think she's aware of his feelings ("...I wish I had (was) a chance,
    a chance To tell you how I feel about you"/"... but never a trace of a chance, a chance To tell you how I feel about you").
    I think she's in a serious relationship with someone else (maybe even married) and that's the reason why he never said anything to her and also the reason for him to think he will never have a chance. And still, he can't prevent himself from loving her...
