Cory Singer’s alternate version of an already beautiful track “Chance of a Lifetime (The Truth)” really does put the song’s story into a new perspective. The chorus lyric change to “You had the chance of a lifetime/ But you threw it away/ I hope you will never forget/ The sad mistake that you made” describes how Singer truly feels that his ex lover missed out on a wonderful experience by ending their relationship. Like the old adage says, you don’t truly know what you have until it’s gone, and it’s quite bittersweet.
Singer’s point of view is poignant- he knows his worth and we should too. Despite the heartache, there is a light at the end of the tunnel in the sweeping instrumentals and Singer’s powerful tone. As an inspiration for many, Singer shows resilience in “The Truth” that is incredibly satisfying to hear.
