"Take A Chance" as written by Landon Pigg and Brian Howes....
I built my fences too high
Had nowhere to go
No one could get inside and I was alone now
I built my trenches too deep
I couldn't see the sky
And then a bullet hit me and I came alive

Ooh I finally found a way to open and say [I finally found a way]
I wanna let you in
I've kept you on the outside such a very long time
But now I see what I've been missin'
All this time I took second-guessin'
Now I need to take a chance on me

I didn't wanna be tied down
But now I see
Not bein' tied down ain't the same as bein' free
Oh you set me free, yeah

Ooh I finally found a way to open and say [I finally found a way]
I wanna let you in
I've kept you on the outside such a very long time
But now I see what I've been missin'
All this time I took second-guessin'
Now I need to take a chance on me

No man is an island
No point in actin' tough
We all need someone to make us smile, to make us cry, to make us love

I wanna let you in [I kept you on the outside such a very long time]

Ooh I finally found a way to open and say [I finally found a way]
I wanna let you in
I've kept you on the outside such a very long, long time
And now I see what I've been missin'
All this time I took second guessin'
Now I see what I've been missin'
All this time I took second guessin'
Now I see all I need to take a chance on me

    General CommentIt's about a guy who's just asking for a chance. He's wasted so much time believing he didn't need anyone ("I didn't wanna be tied down", "All this time I took second guessing"), but now he sees life differently ("Not being tied down ain't the same as being free... you set me free"). He knows that all he wants now is to be with the one who will make him feel and set him free and all he wants is for her to take a chance on him. He's more than willing to let her in if she's willing to give him another shot.

    I don't know if I made sense, but that's how I see it.
