IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I Never Had A Chance

IRVING BERLIN
"I Never Had A Chance"

[Verse:]
I guess there's nothing to do and nothing to say
But simply go on my way
And call it a day
I guess I'm ready to go right back on the shelf
Because at last I've learned where you're concerned
I've just been fooling myself

[Refrain:]
I never had a chance
I thought you cared for me
But now I see
I never had a chance

I never had a chance
Though you never told me so
Somehow I know
I never had a chance

I knew we'd have to part
For I could always reach your lips
But I could never reach your heart

My dream about romance
Ended in a friendly chat
But more than that
I never had a chance
