I was just up (peeing, actually), when the lines from “While You See A Chance” (Steve Winwood, 1981) came to me.
When some sad old dream reminds you
how the endless road unwinds you
while you see a chance, you take it
find romance, fake it
because it’s all on you
I always enjoy that section in particular. It’s an uplifting song to me, one of several favorites that Steve Winwood put out as a solo artist. Looking for confirmation a bit ago, I verified that he didn’t write the lyrics alone, that it was co-written by Will Jennings. I thought that I’d read that but couldn’t recall the details. Thanks to Wikipedia for the reminder.
The title, too, always strikes me; not, ‘when you see a chance’ but ‘while you see a chance’. Act while you see it, not when you see it. Like that subtle difference.
