Second Best

People are put into our lives for a reason.

Lyrics

[verse]
I know you love her
more than you love me
and when you close your eyes
it’s her you see

I know if you could choose
I’d lose
and no magic spell
will make this end well

[pre-chorus]
I’m still full speed ahead
down this one-way street
pushing all second thoughts
into the back seat
trying to give my heart
a reason to beat

[chorus]
I’ll settle for (settle for) second best
if it means hurting one (hurting one) second less
I’ll be your… second best

[verse]
I know I am better
than a back-up plan
and it hurts to know
you’d rather be her man

I know one day
I’ll walk away
when it’s not worth
all this hurt

[pre-chorus]
Now I’m full speed ahead
down this one-way street
pushing all second thoughts
into the back seat
trying to give my heart
a reason to beat

[chorus]
I’ll settle for (settle for) second best
if it means hurting one (hurting one) second less
I’ll be your…

[bridge]
your loving is second hand
but I’m no victim of circumstance
you’re not my second chance
I’d be gone with no second glance

[chorus]
I settle for (settle for) second best
‘cause it means hurting one (hurting one) second less

I settle for (settle for) second best
‘cause it means hurting one (hurting one) second less

you are my… second best
