"Taking Chances" as written by and David Stewart Kara Dioguardi....
Don't know much about your life
Don't know much about your world
But don't wanna be alone tonight
On this planet they call Earth

You don't know about my past
And I don't have a future figured out
And maybe this has gone too fast
And maybe it's not meant to last

But what do you say to taking chances
What do you say to jumping off the edge
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or a hand to hold
Or hell to pay
What do you say
What do you say

I just wanna start again
Maybe you could show me how to try
Maybe you could take me in
Somewhere underneath your skin

What do you say to taking chances
What do you say to jumping off the edge
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or a hand to hold
Or hell to pay
What do you say
What do you say

And I've had my heart beaten down
But I always come back for more, yeah
There's nothing I'd love to pull you up
When you're lyin down on the floor there

So talk to me, talk to me
Like lovers do
So walk with me, walk with me
Like lovers, yeah
Like lovers do

What do you say to taking chances
What do you say to jumping off the edge
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or a hand to hold
Or hell to pay
What do you say
What do you say

Don't know much about your life
And I don't know much about your world

    General CommentI love this song,
    I think it means that even though you dont know what the outcome of something will be it shouldnt stop you from doing what you think is right.
    thats the best way i can explain it.

    General Commentbeautiful song
    It means that you should always go after you want, even if you don't know if it will work out, at least you know you tried.
    It's saying that you need to venture into the unknown in order to fulfill your dream or passion

    General CommentThis song is about someone needing another human being. And it doesn't matter if it's just for one night, that's enough. That one night could be eternity for all they care. Also, it's about "taking chances" and making life all it can be. No matter what happens, you need to take that leap of faith and go with it. Who knows, it might be fun.
