One Chance Only

For Maja

One chance only
There won't be another one
You said, "I hate being lonely
"But this way we cannot go on
"So either will you change it
"Or tomorrow I'll be gone"

You knew I wouldn't
You know that all I am is true
You knew I couldn't
I can't give up my life for you
So when you made your proposition
You damned well knew what I would do

So this is over
This is gone
You said you're looking for another one
Who will be
Just the way that you're expecting him to be
Who'll accept those dubious thoughts
That you've tried to make me see
Who'll take what you have offered me
One chance only

You gave me one chance only
And why you did that well I know
To give me one chance only
Is simpler than to tell me no
Ain't gonna take your one chance only
I hope you'll miss me when I go

So this is over
This is gone
You said you're looking for another one
Who will be
Just the way that you're expecting him to be
Who'll accept those dubious thoughts
That you've tried to make me see
Who'll take what you have offered me
One chance only
One chance only...

October 15, 1988. Severly exaggerated version of a real discussion I had that day.
