Chance In Your World - Lyrics

Album: Mark Searcy, Grapetown Rail, 2017   
Written by: Mark Searcy Middleton

I listened to them argue over if I’d be born -  ironically
As if I was yet to be, my real birthday’s come and gone
It felt like my trial, though I’ve not yet spoke a word
How could it be, I ain’t guilty - just want a chance in your world
Yes a chance in your world

I’ve already dreamed about the man I might become
Maybe a doctor helpin' people or a carpenter, like the man who came to visit it me,
From Galilee, said he’d would check on me from time to time
Oh mamma won’t you give me a chance to show you – in your world
Just a chance in your world
Oh a chance in your world
Oh a chance in your world

So Mama listen to me as I make my final plea
It’s a faith filled journey - yes it’s our destiny
You've got to make up your own mind, but I ain’t never gonna let go
Just want a chance to show, you, in your world
Just a chance in your world
Yes a chance in your world
Oh a chance in your world
Ohhhh I need a chance in your world
Just a chance in your world
