Maybe
Woah if I could pray and I try, dear
You might come back home, home to me

Maybe
Whoa, if I could ever hold your little hand
Ooh you might understand
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done something wrong
Honey I'd be glad to admit it
Ooh, come on home to me
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe yeah

Well I know that it just doesn't ever seem to matter, baby
Woah honey, when I go out or what I'm trying to do
'Cause you see I'm still left here
And I'm all alone and needing you

Please, please, please, please
Oh won't you reconsider babe
Now come on, I said come back
Won't you come back to me

Maybe dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe
Let me help you show me how
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah
Ooh

    i'm not exactly sure, but i believe this is a cover of the original "maybe" from the three degrees, which in my opinion, is an excellent version of the song. it's all spoken word, and then the last, maybe two minutes, are an all-out explosion of vocals.

    This is not the original. It's a cover of The Chantel's "Maybe", from their 1958's album "We are The Chantels". The Three Degrees also covered this song. The original version is a great, although nothing matches Janis' voice!!!

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
