"Chances" as written by and Fabrizio Moretti Nick Valensi....
I waited for ya
I waited for ya
I waited on ya
But now I don't

You didn't see it
I didn't see it
I didn't see it
But now, oh, I do

I play your game
I play your game
Now
I play your game
I play your game

I take my chances alone
Get on your horse and be gone
I will not wait up for you anymore
So you can ask me if something is wrong
Will you go?
I don't know anymore

When the night isn't ready for you
It's a feeling I know that dogs you
They invited a stewardess, too
Now they want you to see it
Here's to days he decides he's got time
And when he claims that it's not a surprise
When he finds out the truth's on his side

I take my chances alone
Get on your horse and be gone
I will not wait up for you anymore
So you can ask me if something is wrong
Will you go?
I don't know anymore
I don't believe anyone
As they crawl out of my way

Waiting for the night
Leaving night by night
You can see me travel
We could be in trouble every night
We're having a new life

    My InterpretationYou've given this person many chances as they play their games and you're saying to them forget about it, be gone out of here as I have had enough of your bull and I am gonna take my changes alone rather than with a player :)

    General CommentTo me the song is about a guy who finally gives up waiting for a girl that he'll probably never get. For too long he's played by her rules but now he's realized that he can't waste his life waiting for her anymore and he's better off alone and he's moving on, even though he might still have feelings for her.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a wife/girlfriend cheating. The husband/boyfriend suspects this, but doesn't confront her. He finds evidence of her plans to cheat and follows her sometimes to confirm what he already knew. It's not a surprise, but it still hurts like it is. So, he starts cheating, too.

    General CommentI think of this song as Julian Casablancas waiting for his father to appear, come see or visit him but he (the father) disappoints every time. Lovely, lovely song but equally heartbreaking.
