I don’t take chances [demo]

This is rather different to most of my songs, but then it does go back to the early 70s. I’ve probably never sung it in public, but I came across the words today and thought it was worth posting.

I might bluegrassize it at some point.

Since we first met I’ve loved and lost at least a dozen times
Till one day I discovered I love you
I don’t know if you could love me, I haven’t dared to ask
But all the same, in case one day you do

I don’t walk under ladders, I throw salt across my shoulder
And as for lucky charms, I have a few
I look both ways crossing one-way streets with all my fingers crossed
I don’t take chances since I fell for you

I counted on your friendship in a world of time and changes
Till I realized I was no longer free
It seems that I was meant to love you, and I mean to stay intact
In case one day you find you’ve need of me

So I keep one eye on my horoscope and one ear to the phone
In hopes that you might call me some sweet day
I keep both eyes peeled for black cats and I touch wood when I can
Hoarding every bit of luck that comes my way
