Whenever I hear goodbyes, reminds me baby of you
I break down and cry, next time I'll be true, yeah
Fever for lost romance reminds me baby of you
And I took a crazy chance
Next time I'll be true,
I'll be true, I'll be true, I'll be true

Footsteps on the dance floor reminds me baby of you
Teardrops in my eyes, next time I'll be true, yeah
Whispers in the powder room
"She cries on every tune, every tune, every tune"

And the music don't feel like it did
And the music don't feel like it did
And the music don't feel like it did with you

When I'm dancin' 'round, reminds me baby of you
And I really let you down, next time I'll be true
I'll be true, I'll be true, I'll be true

Footsteps on the dance floor
reminds me baby of you
Teardrops in my eyes, next time I'll be true, yeah
Whispers in the powder room
"She cries on every tune, every tune, every tune"

And the music don't feel like it did
And the music don't feel like it did
And the music don't feel like it did with you

    General Commentthis song has nothing to do with the massive attack song, "teardrop." it's a cover of a womack & womack song originally recorded in 1988, and has since been covered by several other artists. anyway, i haven't heard the original but i LOVE this version so much.

    General CommentI always thought that the "crazy chance" was that they cheated on their partner, who then found out about it and broke up with them. Now everything reminds them of their lost love, and they regret throwing it away.

    My InterpretationWhether its a cover or not I think this is such an awesome band. My take on the song is that the couple went into the relationship for all the wrong reasons or they really wasn't meant to be together,

    Hence; "And I took a crazy chance"

    they broke up and she feels like ever since then things aren't the same.

    Hence; "And the music don't feel like it did"

    She misses him but its too late and the next person she dates she'll be completely honest and real with them or she made a mistake and she wants him back,

    Hence; "When I'm dancin' 'round, reminds me baby of you
    And I really let you down, next time I'll be true"

    My OpinionThis song fits right now. I like this cover better than Massive Attack's take. It could be about an insecure lover in a relationship that leaves them slightly unsatisfied, not enough to have the courage of being truthful rather the need of destroying or attacking first. it's too late to go back once the time has been butchered.
