"One More Chance" is the third single off Madonna's second greatest hits album Something to Remember.

Background

Madonna wrote the song during her six-month vocal training with vocal coach Joan Leder in preparation of her role in the musical Evita. In a January 1996 interview with Spin magazine, Madonna said that the song was inspired by a happy moment in her life, when she gave a chance to a man she knew, and he was able to fulfill it to her needs. She reversed the situation and wrote the song. Madonna explained, "Often in my songwriting, I take things people say to me and turn them around, and put it in the first person. So it's actually something that was said to me." Madonna did not reveal the name of the person who became the main subject of the song.

Composition

The song is played in the key of F major, with a basic sequence of Cmaj7–Bm7–Am7–Bm7 as its chord progression, while piano and guitar are used to play the background music. Madonna's voice spans from G3 to B♭4.

Lyrics

I turned around
Too late
To see the fallen star
I fell asleep
And never saw the sun go down
I took your love for granted
Thought luck was always on my side
I turned around too late
And you were gone

So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me

I like to play the queen of hearts
And never thought I'd lose
I rolled the dice
But never showed my hand
I planned it out so perfectly
So you'd never leave a girl like me
I was a fool
But now I understand

So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me

Here is the law of the land
You play with fire and you'll get burned
Here is the lesson I've learned
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone

So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
Gimme one more chance
Tell me that it's not too late
Let me win your love
Darlin' please don't hesitate
If you care for me
Be there for me

Give me
One more chance
