The best days
sometimes
turn for
the worse

The best songs
sometimes go
verse chorus verse

The best shows
sometimes
end with
a hit

The best years
of our life
They're gone, this is it

I try to be something that I'm not
I don't have much, but I give you all I've got
Second hand is the first place that I turn
Throw my memories away in the fire to burn

The best films
that I've seen
They win no
awards

The best loves
that I've had
they gave me
no cards

The best books
that I've read
Their pages
are torn

The best friends
that I've known
They call me
no more

I try to be something that I'm not
I don't have much, but I give you all I've got
Second place is my permanent residence
See the world through someone else's picket fence

I try to buy you something I can't afford
My whole life was purchased in a thrift store
Your old fads are my new spring wardrobe
After you's the only way that I know

The best shows
on TV
They repeat
for me

The best bands
My heroes
One day I'll
meet them

All that I've had, it is now yours
I've cleaned out all my dresser's drawers
I'm trying hard, I'm falling harder

All that I've had, it is now hers
Shes pushed me down, I'm on all fours
I'm gasping for air, I'm grasping for something to hold on to

Second hand is the first place that I turn
Throw my memories away in the fire to burn

I try to be something that I'm not
I don't have much, but I give you all I've got
Second place is my permanent residence
See the world through someone else's picket fence

I try to buy you something I can't afford
My whole life was purchased in a thrift store
Your old fads are my new spring wardrobe
After you's the only way that I know
