"A close call" in lyrics

You don't know how it was over there

It's me, it's the Italian
I'm back from very far away<fn>It can also figuratively mean "It's been a close call".</fn>
The road was poor
And, after so many years,

Serge Reggiani - The Italian

It was a close call,
Sitting in the back of the room with the beau you know
that they didn’t know,
Closing on my black eyes, feel safe at times
Certain emblems tell me it’s time

Sharon Van Etten - Serpents

Take good care of her, you won't know someone better than her
Promise to me that you'll fulfill whichever promise you make her
Take good care of her, she likes it when people notice her hair
It was a close call, but I couldn't be what she always wanted
Make her happy!

Henrique e Juliano - Take Good Care of Her

Easily you may forget,
Being alive isn't so obvious
It was a close call,
The road was dangerous,
But we're still alive

Jukka Poika - Gratitude

It is easy to forget
That this life is not to be taken for granted
It was a close call
The road was dangerous
But we survived

Jukka Poika - Gratitude

What happened
It was better like this
I was on a tightrope
I was on a close call
I was already on the end
Everybody saw it

Marisa Monte - It Happened

My word, my word
Da poor old crate

'Twas a close call, deary (x2)
Dat hoe be yer mum (x2)
Dat hoe ye're laughin' about

Juliette (Noureddine - France) - Lament of the ladies of the night (Georges Brassens cover)

Dedicated, de-terminated and disciplined
When Diddy, Hova, and Baby talking I'm listening
When I be in the jungle the Devil be whispering
Slugs flying by me I hear them, they whistling, that was a close call
Stand up nigga so I won't fall
My teacher told me I would never go far

Meek Mill - Cold Hearted

But I could be that guy, I could be you
You could be that other guy
Crazy people's Russian roulette,
If we avoided it, it was always a close call

Zélia Duncan - A Foreign Person

Looking down on you all
Thought that I was a little off
Till I came back and stole the ball
It was a close call. up against the wall
But I ain't like you, I won't tuck my balls
In my tail like a fucking dog

Deuce - Look At Me Now

I kick the shit that niggas love when they hot boxin
Right when you was bout to retire from listenin rap music
I reversered and turned you back to it
It was a close call
I was even thinkin all hope was lost but most of all
Be happy

Hopsin - I'm Here

Yes, take me for ever, Beatriz
Teach me not to walk with my feet on the ground
For ever is always a close call
Oh, tell me how many disasters in my hand
Tell me if it's dangerous if we're happy

Jorge Vercillo - Beatriz

He was mortal now but
Because he didn't drink that last drop
He kept his divine power
It was a close call

Unfortunately for Hera and Zeus

Hercules (OST) - The Gospel Truth III

I won’t hear, I’ll just go fast
Into this night, on broken legs

A near miss or a close call?
I keep a room at the hospital
I scratch my accidents into the wall
