Athlete - Chances Lyrics




Take all your chances while you can
You never know when they'll pass you by
Like a sum the mathematician cannot solve
Like me trying my hardest to explain

It's all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can't calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

Take me over

If I had the chance to start again
Then you would be the one I'd come and find
Like the poster of Berlin on my wall
Maybe there's a chance our walls might fall

It's all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can't calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

It's all about your cries and kisses
Those first steps that I can't calculate
I need some more of you to take me over

I know I because I cant calculate

How to respect you
How to start again
How to start again
How to start again

It's all about you

    Vincent e o doutor.

  2. Dp.slayer

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I came from doctor who
    And you did too

  3. taurnguard

    I was at a scifi convention in line waiting to get Karen Gillan's autograph. Two girls were in front of me. I asked them what their favorite Karen episode was. Honestly, I forgot what they said. One got distracted by her cell phone. The other asked what my favorite was. I said Vincent And The Doctor. Instant puppy dog sad eyes on her and she said, "Ohhhh..". She taps her friend on the shoulder: "What?" "Vincent And The Doctor." *puppy dog sad eyes on her too* "Ohhhh.." Yeah, that episode will hit you hard.

  4. Scott Gaming44

    Who came here from Doctor who I did 😁

  5. Ellen Murphy

    That scene in Vincent and the Doctor when Vincent sees he's work in the museum brought me here. Athlete there couldn't have been a better song for that scene.

  6. Elif Dean

    so many ninjas cutting onions.:((

  7. Patrick the Mighty

    0:53 *goosebumps.

  8. Crypto Knight

    Perhaps one day someone will make a song or a movie about Vincent's sister-in-law Johanna. Devoted brother Theo financed Vincent out of his meagre salary right up until his tragic death. When Vincent shot himself Theo was devastated and died of a broken heart six months later. He was buried next to his brother. Theo left a widow and a son (who was also called Vincent). Joanna was now a single mother with no income. Such a future is difficult today but in the 1890's it was disastrous. No income support back then right? All she had was Vincent's paintings which the art world considered as nothing but amateur daubs. However, even so, poor brave Joanna spent the rest of her life telling the world of Vincent's work. It was only when she was much older did the British National Gallery finally recognise Van Gogh's genius and began negotiating with Johanna in purchasing some of Vincent's paintings. Therefore we can assume the paintings shown in the Dr Who episode are those purchased directly from her. I think it is wonderful that Vincent's works are so admired today but it also saddens me that history overlooks that it takes dedicated people to get the world to take notice. Make no mistake, without the sacrifice of Joanna Van Gogh, no one would ever have heard the name of Vincent Van Gogh. Personally I think it is on time we started tell history from a wider perspective. No genius would be a genius without the sacrifice of those behind them.

    Vicente Van Gogh and The Doctor....
    []:'^)

  19. James Fisherkeller

    “Hello, old friend. And here we are. You and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well, and were very happy. And above all else, know that we will love you, always. Sometimes, I do worry about you, though. I think once we're gone, you won't be coming back here for a while. And you might be alone, which you should never be. Don't be alone, Doctor. And do one more thing for me. There's a little girl waiting in a garden. She's going to wait a long while, so she's going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she's patient, the days are coming that she'll never forget. Tell her she'll go to sea and fight pirates. She'll fall in love with a man who'll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she'll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived, and save a whale in outer space. Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.”

  20. James Lawman

    People will come back to this song for decades.

  21. Shawn Thomas

    How to start again!

  22. Orange Features

    Crises and kisses

  23. Sidney Frederickson

    The album "Tourist" is about the fragility of life and relationships. The first single "Wires" is heart wrenching, about Joel Pott's daughter's premature birth and near death in NICU. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ivKzieP9ZU

    0:52 *Vincent walks into the Van Gogh section*

  38. Rumaanah Lorgat

    Not ashamed to admit I cried in Vincent and the Doctor

  39. Kayleigh Bartlet

    "To me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world's greatest artist but also one of the greatest men who ever lived."

    Edison M. Raya

    Still crying after all these years :(

  40. R. Severino

  66. micandro nella

    Westlife's version of Chances brought me here

  67. Maya Netzer

    a little long, but: "to me Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again.
