Katy Perry - Long Shot

"Long Shot" is a song written by Katy Perry, Greg Wells, and Matt Thiessen. The song was originally recorded by Perry's album, (A) Katy Perry, however, the song was left unused due to the album's cancellation. A music video was filmed for the song and first premiered on YouTube. The video was shot in Los Angeles, California in the same hotel room as the video for "Box".

Kelly Clarkson's version

Kelly Clarkson recorded the song in 2008 for her album, All I Ever Wanted. There are minor differences between the two versions. Clarkson's take has an added intro and longer end chorus while Perry's version lacks the intro and doesn't run as long at the end, but has an added bridge. An unreleased revision of Perry's version was leaked onto the web in 2009. The revision includes a intro similar to Kelly Clarkson's but has slightly altered instrumentals. This is the second song that Clarkson recorded from (A) Katy Perry, the other being "I Do Not Hook Up".

Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

I felt it
The wire touched my neck and
Then someone pulled it tighter
I never saw it coming
I started to black out and
Then someone said good morning
I took it as a warning
I should have seen it coming
So now I'll take a chance on
This thing we may have started
Intentional or not I
Dont think we saw it coming
It's all adding up to something
That asks for some involvement
That asks for our commitment
I think I see it coming
If we step out of that limb

My heart beat, beats me senselessly
Whys everything got to be so intense with me?
Im trying to handle all this unpredictability
In all probability

It's a long shot but I say why not
If I say forget it I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it
There's no chance
Cause you're the best I got
So take the long shot

I realize that there is all this doubting
That we're both scared about but
Well never see them coming
Throw caution to the wind and
Well see which way it's blowing
And to this pulling on
We'll never see it coming
Until it's much to close to stop

My heart beat, beats me senselessly
Whys everything got to be so intense with me?
Im trying to handle all this unpredictability
And all probability

It's a long shot but I say why not
If I say forget it
I know that I'll regret it
It's a long shot just to beat these odds
The chance is we won't make it
But i know if i don't take it there's no chance
Cause you're the best I got
So take the long shot

What a pleasant surprise what a breath of fresh air
You knock the wind out of me
But inside it's so unaware

Ahaa, ahaa, ahaa

Oh I waited for fact to come of fiction
And you fit my description
I never saw you coming
But we'll make it even though

It’s a long shot and I say why not
If I say forget it
I know that I’ll regret it
It’s a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won't make it
But I know if I don't take it there's no chance
Cause you're the best I've got
So take the long shot

You didn't expect this
Oh you never saw me coming
You didn't expect this
Oh you never saw this coming

I take the long shot
I take the long shot, shot, shot, shot, shot, shot
Cuz you're the best I got

Oh I’m taking this chance on you baby
I’m taking this chance on you baby
I’m taking this chance

Cause you're the best I got
So take the long shot
