"Chance" as written by Robin Hannibal Moelsted Braun and Caroline Hanna Mariann Ekstrom....
All the rain came down
On a cold new town
As he carried you away
From your father's hand
That always seemed like a fist
Reaching out to make you pay

He came like a hero from the factory floor
With the sun and moon as gifts
But the only son you ever saw
Were the two he left you with

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

Now the skirts hang so heavy around your head
That you never knew you were young
Because you played chance with a lifetime's romance
And the price was far too long

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

    General CommentTo me its about a woman who escaped an abusive/threatening father with what she though was her dream man who sweet talked her with visions of happiness. The man married her, she had 2 children and then he left her on her own with the 2 boys. She left 1 bad relationship and entered another beleiving it would improve her life. Now shes alone and depressed. Another interpretation would be the mass pilgrimage from Scotlands steel works to Corby in England in the 80's when thousands left with the promise of long term jobs and better lives and then the industry folded leaving numerous Scot's stranded in Corby.
