World of Chances draws heavily on the bands extensive touring experience, as well as the many and varied influences that have driven how their music has evolved. At times uplifting, at times reflective, the result is a brighter, breezier, feel-good sound, yet one that is still unmistakably Skerryvore! The ‘Deluxe Edition’ features bonus live tracks, exclusive acoustic versions plus more.

Put your hands up

Are you ready?

Here we go

Grab a friend by the hand

And swing them to and fro.

Cos tonight

I’ve got an offer

To which you can’t say no…….. no, no, no

If you give it a try

I know you won’t regret it

Or forget it.


Up to the sky, down to the ground

Put them together and around we go

Up to the sky, down to the ground

Put them together and around we go

Here we go……… here we go


Put your hands up

Are you ready?

Here we go

Don’t be scared, just let go

That way you can perfect it

You’ll soon get it.


Up to the sky, down to the ground

Put them together and around we go

Up to the sky, down to the ground

Put them together and around we go

Here we go……… here we go


Because tonight is the place to be

You wanna be cool then listen to me

Your inhibitions should be running free

So put your hands up come on let’s see


Put your hands up, put your hands up, put your hands up……..

Put your hands up….. put your hands up…………

IT FEELS LIKE RAIN

Let’s take a walk, once again

Take a stroll on the flooded roadside

There’s no blue, in the sky

Cos today it feels like rain


But I won’t, waste my time

Feeling sorry for myself and the weather

It’s the same almost every day

Take the rough with the smooth

Cos today it feels like rain


Let’s go outside

No matter what the weather

Even if it rains forever

Let’s be happy we’re together

Let’s go outside

We’ll all get soaked together

I won’t complain not ever

I’ll be happy come whatever

Cos I’m happy with what we got

If the sun shines or not


And if you look, at the news

And they tell you that we’re in for stormy weather

Don’t you ever get the blues

It’s just that today it feels like rain.


Let’s go outside

No matter what the weather

Even if it rains forever

Let’s be happy we’re together

Let’s go outside

We’ll all get soaked together

I won’t complain not ever

I’ll be happy come whatever

Cos I’m happy with what we got

If the sun shines or not


If it feels like rain

Don’t be ashamed

To call my name out loud

I still feel the same

Since the rain clouds came

And tried to put your fire out

Cos I’m happy with what we got

If the sun shines or not


Can you see

What I mean?

It may look like rain but with you I can’t feel a thing.


Let’s go outside

No matter what the weather

Even if it rains forever

Let’s be happy we’re together

Let’s go outside

We’ll all get soaked together

I won’t complain not ever

I’ll be happy come whatever

Cos I’m happy with what we got

If the sun shines or not

Yes I’m happy with what we got

If the sun shines or not.

MAGIC NUMBERS

I’m looking for that magic number I’m looking for the key

There’s a world of chances waiting pack your bags and come with me

I’m not telling you it’s easy it’s not simple it takes time

You gotta fight to get your piece of the pie and eat it in the sweet sunshine.


You gotta just fly so high, no time to be slow

You gotta just try, just try, don’t tell yourself no.


I shouldn’t take for granted all things I call my own

Life is just a gamble it depends which number your chips are on

When things aren’t going your way and you’re staring at the ground

Just look to the sky and search for all the things that should be found


You gotta just fly so high, no time to be slow

You gotta just try, just try, don’t tell yourself no.

You gotta just fly so high, no time to be slow

You gotta just try, just try, don’t tell yourself no.


I’m looking for that magic number I’m looking for the key

There’s a world of chances waiting pack your bags and come with me


You gotta just fly so high, no time to be slow

You gotta just try, just try, don’t tell yourself no.

You gotta just fly so high, no time to be slow

You gotta just try, just try, don’t tell yourself no.

THE ONES THAT YOU LOVE

Over land and sea and through the open sky

The people that you meet and the things that you try

The world’s a little place when you look from above

The things that really matter are the ones that you love.


Well you worry about money and the things you’ve got to pay

What other people think, what other people say

You worry about the future, you worry about the past

You wonder how longs it’s all going to last.


Cos it’s you and me and nothing else really matters

All the rest of life, is just trivial subject matter

Cos it’s you and me and nothing else really matters

All the rest of life, is just trivial subject matter

And I just want to know what you’d do when push comes to shove

It’s about the ones that you love.


Over land and sea and through the open sky

The people that you meet and the things that you try

The world’s a little place when you look from above

The things that really matter are the ones that you love.


It’s your hair or your make up or how your trousers fit

People finding out about the sins you commit

What’s the use in being guilty all of the time

Being truly happy isn’t a crime.


Cos it’s you and me and nothing else really matters

All the rest of life, is just trivial subject matter

Cos it’s you and me and nothing else really matters

All the rest of life, is just trivial subject matter

And I just want to know what you’d do when push comes to shove

It’s about the ones that you love.

It’s about the ones that you love………….

SUMMER HIGH

The sun splits the sky today

The sun makes me feel fine today

Show your face from the dark

Cover us all with the light

Take us away from the wind and the rain

Then leave us with the stars and moon at night.


That summer high been waiting for so long

Hiding through the winter but it’s been burning strong

That summer high I’m so glad that you’re here

Making people happy I want to keep that feeling near.


The sun burns the clouds away

The sun makes me feel fine today

Wake us up in the morning

Show us the good times again

When the days are long and the night is young

Only the shadows on the walls remain.


That summer high been waiting for so long

Hiding through the winter but it’s been burning strong

That summer high I’m so glad that you’re here

Making people happy I want to keep that feeling near.


And when the sky is as blue as the ocean

And you can lie with your feet in the sand

Well that’s when I wish that we

Could just dance like we did yesterday

Cos I just can’t lose that summer high.


That summer high been waiting for so long

Hiding through the winter but it’s been burning strong

That summer high I’m so glad that you’re here

Making people happy I want to keep that feeling near

THE LAST TIME

There you stand with your masterplan

are you gonna fix it do you think you really can?

I don’t believe you

you said the same the last time.


Does it make you feel good

When you’re telling lies

Can you still say it while you look into our eyes

Cos we don’t need you

We’ve heard it for the last time.


Cos you’re always saying something and it never really works

You always do it your way never listening to us

Avoiding all the questions with your clever play on words

You shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it

You said the same the last time.


Do you think you fooled us

Do you think you’re wise

I hop you know that you’re someone we despise

And we don’t need you

We’ve heard it for the last time.


Cos you’re always saying something and it never really works

You always do it your way never listening to us

Avoiding all the questions with your clever play on words

You shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it

You said the same the last time.


Does it make you feel good

When you’re telling lies

Can you still say it while you look into our eyes

Cos we don’t need you

We’ve heard it for the last time.


Cos you’re always saying something and it never really works

You always do it your way never listening to us

Avoiding all the questions with your clever play on words

You shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it

You said the same the last time.

AT THE END OF THE DAY

John was only young when he

Learned about the birds and bees

Or so he thought

His parents told him long ago

‘Bout everything that he should know

And should be taught.


And later when he went to school

He found another set of rules

Which he forgot

It wasn’t what he’d like to hear

And went straight out the other ear

He had his shot.


He was a one can danger man, a liability

Far too free, no attention span, or sensibility

Found out too late

To try to mend his foolish ways

But he had fun at the end of the day.


By the age of seventeen

His record was so far from clean

It turned to rot

His soul was just a barren land

An empty space where once was planned

A beauty spot.


He was a one can danger man, a liability

Far too free, no attention span, or sensibility

Found out too late

To try to mend his foolish ways

But he had fun at the end of the day.

He was a one can danger man, a liability

Far too free, no attention span, or sensibility

Found out too late

To try to mend his foolish ways

He was a one can danger man, a liability

Far too free, no attention span, or sensibility

Found out too late

To try to mend his foolish ways

But he had fun at the end of the day.

HEY HEY HEY

Where you gonna be in five years time is a question often asked

But one that you don’t need to know the answer to

It’s the kind of thing that people say to help you find your way

But if you’re not lost then answer it another day.


Cos you still have time, take as long as you need

You don’t need the answers all at once cos they can wait

Just as long as you know there’s something on its way

You can bide your time until you’ve got another move to play

Hey hey hey

Hey hey hey.


Some people find that answers a little quicker than the rest

It doesn’t mean it’s gonna be the right ones

It’s better to be late than to be early and be wrong

So bide your time I promise you it won’t be long.


Cos you still have time, take as long as you need

You don’t need the answers all at once cos they can wait

Just as long as you know there’s something on its way

You can bide your time until you’ve got another move to play

Hey hey hey

Hey hey hey……..

Cos you still have time, take as long as you need

You don’t need the answers all at once cos they can wait

Just as long as you know there’s something on its way

You can bide your time until you’ve got another move to play

Hey hey hey

Hey hey hey…………………………………….

WE'RE THE LUCKY ONES

Just having fun

Young and free until these days are done.

But I don’t wanna grow up

I just wanna be me for the rest of my life.


So live for today

And know that you’re a lucky one

You can’t regret

The things you haven’t even done

You get so long

Before it catches up on you.

But I don’t wanna grow up

I just wanna be me for the rest of my life.


What you said to me

It doesn’t fit

It sits uncomfortably.

Damage has been done

You said it all

With one quick look at me.


So live for today

And know that you’re a lucky one

You can’t regret

The things you haven’t even done

You get so long

Before it catches up on you.


You only get so long

You only get so long to live

So be glad for what you’ve got

You only get so long

Before the chance is gone

So if you’re feeling strong

Learn to forgive

Love the life you live.

Just having fun

Young and free until these days are done.
