"For the Second Time" as written by and Ian Matthews....
I came home to find the lights all burning bright
And I was feeling good inside
A friend had seen me through the night

And you know that thing that hits you
When you realize you've thrown it far too high
And as I called your name around the place
Silence was a very loud reply

I saw it in movies and I smiled
When Little Egypt she slipped away
Left us sitting in the aisles

And the fallacy of running
From disaster or a river cracked and dry
And as I waited half-expecting her
And silence was a very loud reply

For the second time in a year
I was broken, I was broken
I was broken (broken)

And for the second time in a year
I was broken, I was broken
I was broken (broken)

I disbelieved the law and stayed inside
And silence makes a very loud reply

And for the second time in a year
I was broken, I was broken
I was broken
