Along with 'West End Girls', this song was released originally with Bobby Orlando. In America and Belgium, it was released as its own single as the a-side, but in all other countries it was the b-side to 'West End Girls'.

Production and RecordingEdit

The music for this song was originally culled from an unused backing track called 'Rock Me' that Bobby O was working on with Divine, another one of his artists.

The version heard on 'Actually' is actually the 12" remix by Julian Mendelsohn. During promotion for 'Actually', it was thought that 'One More Chance' would be a single. The Mendelsohn 7" remained unreleased until the 'Further Listening' release of Actually in 2001.

Lyrics Edit

The lyrics are about paranoia, according to Neil:

The idea of being chased by someone - the mafia are after you, like you're the patsy or something - and at the same time you're looking for your love.
The original line for the bridge in the 1986 version was "...you're so extreme / your silk-screened life shot through with bullets...' but was changed because this was considered too 'over the top'

The city is quiet, too cold to walk alone 
Strangers in overcoats hurry on home 
Tonight I've been walking in the rain 
Someone's been talking and I've got the blame 
Chained, framed, you know what I mean 
Push me in a corner and I'll scream

Just give me one more, 
one more chance 
One more, 
one more chance

I will find out wherever you are 
drinking in another club or driving in your car 
Walking through empty streets 
Stupid fool, that was yours for keeps 
Chained, framed, you know what I mean 
Push me in a corner and I'll scream

One more, one more chance 
Give me one more, one more chance 
Give me one more, one more chance 
Give me one more chance, one more chance tonight

The city is quiet, too cold to walk alone 
Strangers in overcoats hurry on home 
Tonight I've been walking in the rain 
Someone's been talking and I've got the blame 
Chained, framed, you know what I mean 
Push me in a corner and I'll scream

Just give me one more, one more chance 
Give me one more, one more chance 
Give me one more, one more chance 
Give me one more chance, 
one more chance tonight

You're so extreme 
I want to take you home with me 
Come on, tell me one more time 
I don't mind, baby, I don't mind 
I don't mind
Just give me one more…
