Music video by Steve Winwood performing While You See A Chance. (C) 1986 Universal Island Records Ltd. A Universal Music Company. 

"While You See a Chance" is a song performed by Steve Winwood in 1980, who also wrote it alongside Will Jennings. It was released on his album Arc of a Diver and peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also reached #68 on the Billboard Top 100 for the year 1981, however it only reached #45 in the UK.

One of the song's most iconic features, its keyboard introduction, was not originally intended to be part of the song. The track was thrown together fairly quickly after Winwood discovered that he had accidentally deleted his intended drum track introduction while preparing for vocals. He wrote a new introduction on the spot as a replacement.

Many radio stations, when the song was released, played the version of the single used in the video, which cut the song's length from 5 minutes 13 seconds to 3 minutes 53 seconds. The edit occurs in the middle of the song, immediately following the lyric "Don't you wonder how you keep on moving? One more day, your way." One can distinguish the two versions at this point: in the full version, Winwood follows this line by repeating the words "Oh, your way", while in the short version, an instrumental passage follows immediately.
