to my advance - time to advance

I have begun gathering my new lyrics and rewrites since March 2017, and combining them together with my former separate lyrics collections into one comprehensive collection. Doing this I also read and check each text to correct or modify it where necessary or desirable. For example, I just changed a title from "to my advance" into "time to advance". The original text went:

I must use the time to my advance
I must not screw up this one-time chance
this could be the start of our romance
must use the time to my advance


The expression "to my advance" was meant as a 'creative' combination of "I should advance" and "to my advantage". But I'm afraid it could come across as a simple mistake - "advance" instead of "advantage". That's why I changed the song's title and chorus to "time to advance":

I must use the time to advance
and not screw up this one-time chance
make this the start of our romance
must use the time to advance


(before "to" a little rest should be provided to make the first line match the meter: "I must use the time _ to advance...").

I expect quite a few more rewrites and corrections in the course of the process. There are more than 500 lyrics to edit, many of which I hardly remember.
