"Second Chance" as written by Ian Sefchick and Sharky Laguana....
I found the phone
I must've missed your message
You got it wrong, It wasn't what your friend said.
Tell by your tone, I've taken it too far again.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and fixed it all again.)

Your friends are telling you, You gotta move on.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and wrecked it all again.)
You turned around so I could tell you what took so long.
I don't know why i ever waited to say.
Cause I'm just dying just to see you again

Instead of holding you, I was holding out.
I should've let you in, but I let you down.
You were the first to give ,I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance.

I should've known, took you and I for granted
Gotta let you know, I was never underhanded.
Tell by your tone, I've taken it too far again.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and fixed it all again.)

My friends are telling me they saw you with someone.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and wrecked it all again.)
You turned around so I could tell you what took so long.
I don't know why i ever waited to say.
Cause I'm just dying just to see you again .

Instead of holding you, I was holding out.
I should've let you in, but I let you down.
You were the first to give ,I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance.

My last mistake, putting my friends first.
I tried to laugh it off but I made things worse.
You were the first to give, I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance.

What you give is always what you get.
There's so much I haven't given yet.
If you could give another second chance.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and fixed it all again.)

My friends are telling me they saw you with someone.
(Just when I thought I'd gone and wrecked it all again.)
You turned around so I could tell you what took so long.
I don't know why I ever waited to say.
Cause I'm just dying just to see you.

Instead of holding you, I was holding out.
I should've let you in, but I let you down.
You were the first to give ,I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance.

My last mistake, putting my friends first.
I tried to laugh it off but I made things worse.
You were the first to give I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place to get a second chance.

Instead of holding you, I was holding out.
I should've let you in, but I let you down.
You were the first to give ,I was the first to ask.
Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance.

    General CommentI can't believe this song has no comments! I heard it a couple months ago on the radio and looked up the lyrics on the internet...when I found out it was Faber Drive I couldn't believe it! I remembered seeing these guys and meeting them when they were on tour with Hedley and immediately falling in love with them...more specifically David Hinsley. ;) I mean the guy smells amazing, lol...but it's pretty obvious what this song is about. It seems like he just fucked up the relationship because he wasn't treating her right and wasn't spending enough time with her and now it looks like there's another guy in her life, thus 'Now I'm in second place, to get a second chance'.

    General CommentI just heard this song yesterday, and I instantly fell in love. I realized that they're touring with Marianas Trench, and I really wanted to see them.
    Oh well; mainly, this song's about some guy that's fucked up his relationship and regrets it now. :]

    General CommentThis song is SO good. I hear it on the radio too! I've heard it twice: and that's pretty good, because the radio station around here is pretty terrible.

    I first heard it when the video premiered on MuchMusic, and I immediately liked it. It's pretty sweet, in my opinion. And the video isn't a wierd one either, it reflects on the song.

    I think it's about how this guy is trying to make his relationship with his girlfriend work, but he keeps screwing up. He makes so many mistakes, and he's praying for a second chance; he want's to do it over again. It ends up his girl is getting fed up with him... but it's a really great song!

    General Comment'just when i thought i'd gone and wrecked it all again'
    -faavorite :]

    mmm.
    i think it's about a guy who's in a relationship, obviously, and he likes her, but he's screwing up. and he knows he's screwing up and he's trying not to, but he keeps doing it. but she's getting tired of waiting for him, and she ends up meeting someone else.

    love this song thoughhh. :)

    General CommentLooks to me like a simple case of "I had you, I lost you and now I see why I wanted you now that you're gone." Regardless, I love the song. I think a lot of people have done it and regret it, but a lot of us just don't have the talent to write it down to explain just how much we regret it so poetically.
    Great song.
