"A Second Glance" as written by and Thomas H Denney....
This is for you (this is for you)
You're the one worth waiting for
You're all I ever needed in this life

Lets sneak out the back, so we can see
What it took to bring us here and be here
So reminded of better days
When we were both happy

Words can't express
The impact you've made on me
In my entire life
And all I can say is that I love you
For everything it serves out

'Cause I try
So hard to make this right (right)

You've got my back on the wall

After all you've put me through
My friends still stay true

Your reign is over
Why couldn't you prove me wrong

    General CommentI agree but it is a bit confusing. At first he sounds compleatly happy to be with this person and then ends it with hate. Just strikes me as a tad odd

    General CommentYeah I thought that as well. its really great at the beginning, hes telling the person that he loves her. then at the end it sounds like theyve broken up and he totally hates her. think they should have kept the lyrics similar to how they were at the beginning throughout.

    its still a great song tho

    General Commentthe song talks about more than just one point in time. he loves her a lot during the relationship, after taking "A SECOND GLANCE" at the relationship, he hates her.

    General CommentI agree with southern. It's about how perfect he thought the relationship was when it started out, then it ended for one way or another. He thought she was perfect and all he needed in his life then after taking a step back and looking back at the relationship, it wasn't worth all he put into it and that she is to blame. Then he realizes that he doesn't need her in his life as long as he has his friends. At their shows they always make a point to show that his friends are everything to him

    General CommentIt reminds me of my last relationship.
    We had an awful breakup, but these words say it all:

    'Words cant express,
    the impact you've made on me,
    In my entire life.
    And all I can say is that I love you,
    For everything it serves out.'

    No matter what, he changed my life. And I still love him, and care about him as a friend, not that that means much these days.

    I dunno. Thats my take.

    General Commentsurely they were in love at first

    Words cant express,
    the impact you've made on me,
    In my entire life.
    And all i can say is that i love you,
    For everything it serves out.

    but things started slipping

    Cause I try,
    So hard to make this right (right).

    and then hes trying to repair it but in the end hates her as she didnt 'prove him wrong' by not breaking his heart or leaving him

    Your reign is over,
    Why couldn't you prove me wrong.

    that last line sorta shows the dominance she has over his heart its like hes fighting a losing battle against her

    pretty confusing tbh

    General Commentyeah it's been said a few times.

    just look at the title of this song and listen to a few versus at the beginning of the song and a few at the end and you can tell that this song is obviously about LOVING, and then HATING.

    its pretty simple.
    adtr is the best.
