"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 want to 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 is going 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 want to start again
And maybe you could show me how to try
And 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 had my heart beaten down
But I always come back for more, yeah
There's nothing like love to pull you up
When you're laying down on the floor there
So talk to me, talk to me
Like lovers do
Yeah walk with me, walk with me
Like lovers do
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 CommentWhen I first heard Celine preform this song, I was taken back to the time when my fiancé and I first met. We had one of those accidental "right place at the right time" meetings. We both were getting over a bad relationship/time in our lives. These lyrics say it all.

    "Don't know much about your life
    Don't know much about your world, but
    Don't want to 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"

    I felt like there was no chance I would but myself through the pain again. I felt defeated by life. But everything changed with that chance meeting. It a was a whole new world to me and I was ready to face it again. It was like I could do it all without fear.

    "And I had my heart beating down
    But, I always come back for more, yeah
    There’s nothing like love to pull you up
    When you’re laying down on the floor there"

    We both made sacrifices and compromises, as is key to making things work. Sometimes taking that leap of faith, even as untimely as it may seem, is worth it!

    "What do you say?"

    The answer was "yes"!
    We are now on our third year and planning that big leap!

    General CommentThis always makes me think of a couple getting back together, like they don't know if it will work out again, but they wanna take the chance.

    General Commenthonestly i am not the biggest fan of celine dion. however i heard this song for the first time on glee!! (love that show!! heres a shout out to the other gleeks out there!) anyway i couldnt get enough of it.i love how it starts off conservative and then gets belted1

    to me this song is about someone who really likes another person and just wants to give a relationship a shot. its all about that leap of faith and wondering if you'll make it out of where you are with that other person. if not you know that you will survive even if you may have regrets. you wont always know if that other person will always be there for you but all you can do is hope..

    Song Meaningit s like u r unfounded and have nothing left of ur past and no hope for future..
    but then u ll find him/her ! so similar to each other heh ! there s nothing obvious about u both
    and u dont know 'bout ur lifes
    and something gets to u
    that there's still a hope .. a chance for making a luck !
    even if u know this may last soon ... but u wanna earn it ! wanna have it !
    perhaps cuz u have nothing else left ...
    so take a chance ... will u ?!

    Memoryi m in this position right now . . . i never guessed this should happen to me !
    not in love right now ( i lov him so much as a friend ) but i wanna take a chance with him , cause there's nothing else to do
    nothing else that can save my relationship with 'im and at the same time doesnt ruin his relation with someone who might be in the future ...
    damn on it ! a terrible situation ... just hav 2 choices ... take a chance or let go of him ... :(
