when writing your history
i will always be a footnote
a distant memory
a warning sign of mistakes made
the kind that you learn from

this song is the best of me
taking pills for solemn odium
a better side of me
an open mind for mistakes made
the kind that you burn from

so take this small confession as my price to pay
i've never been the kind to let go
but before you up and walk away
i'm miserable without you, you know
this silver leaves me longing for gold
second place has never carried me home
second place has never carried me home

this song is so out of key
i'm trying even harder just to even these memories of you
a warning sign of regression
the kind you never learn from

this song is a melody
to show you a little more than a bitter history
an open sky of redemption
the kind you always burn from

so take this small confession as my price to pay
i've never been the kind to let go
but before you up and walk away
i'm miserable without you, you know
this silver leaves me longing for gold
second place has never carried me home
second place has never carried me home

it never carried me

    General Commentsince i posted this, i just wanted to know if anyone knew for sure that it said:

    second places never carry me home

    i don't have the booklet for the CD, but i'm pretty sure it doesn't state the exact lyrics there anyhow.
