Kelly Clarkson — Long Shot lyrics

[Verse 1]
I felt it
The wire touched my neck and
Then someone pulled it tighter
I never saw it coming
I started to black out and
Then someone said good morning
I took it as a warning
I should have seen it coming

[Verse 2]
So now I'll take a chance on
This thing we may have started
Intentional or not, I
Don't think we saw it coming
It's all adding up to something
That asks for some involvement
That asks for a commitment
I think I see it coming
If we step out of that limb

[Pre-Chorus]
My heart beat beats me senselessly
Why's everything got to be so intense with me?
I'm trying to handle all this unpredictability
In all probability

[Chorus]
It's a long shot, but I say why not?
If I say forget it, I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it, there's no chance
'Cause you're the best I got
So take a long shot

[Verse 3]
I realize
That there is all this doubting
Things we're both scared about, that
We'll never see them coming
Throw caution to the wind and
We'll see which way it's blowing
And to this fully knowing
We'll never see it coming
Until it's much to close to stop

[Pre-Chorus]
My heart beat beats me senselessly
Why's everything got to be so intense with me
I'm trying to handle all this unpredictability
In all probability

[Chorus]
It's a long shot, but I say why not
If I say forget it, I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it, there's no chance
'Cause you're the best I got
So take a long shot

[Verse 4]
Oh I waited
For fact to come of fiction
And you fit my description
I never saw you coming
But we'll make it

[Chorus]
It's a long shot, but I say why not
If I say forget it, I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it, there's no chance
'Cause you're the best I got
So take a long shot

[Outro]
There's no chance, there's no chance
'Cause you're the best I got
It's a long shot but I say why not
If I say forget it I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it
It's a long shot but I say why not
Oh you never saw me coming
