"Second Best" as written by and John T. Tran....
I want your boyfriend
In a box so I can send him off
Somewhere far away
Then well be the way
Like we used to be
Used to be

You want my girlfriend
All tied up so you can threaten her
Since I'm not with you
Now you're telling her
That you still want me
Still want me

[Chorus]
I don't want to be second best
I've waited too long
I just want a second chance to be your first again

You're never satisfied
With anyone granted you're content
When you're boyfriend leaves
You'll be calling me
Then well cheat again
Cheat again

[Chorus]

To be your first again
Why can't the feeling end?
To be your first again

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentAw, I love this song...and the beginning (I'm a sucker for any kind of guitar solos) Anyway, this song is about this guy & girl who used to go out, & now they've "moved on" to other people. However, neither of them are satisfied w/ that arrangement. So they cheat w/ each other, but the guy's isn't too into that either & "just wants a second chance to be her first again"

    -------------------------

    I want your boyfriend in a box so I can send him off.
    Somewhere far away then we'll be the way like we used to be.
    You want my girlfriend all tied up so you can threaten her since I'm not with you.
    Now you're telling her that you still want me.

    [Chorus]
    I don't want to be second best.
    I've waited too long.
    I just want a second chance to be your first again.

    You're never satisfied with anyone.
    Pretending you're content.
    When your boyfriend leaves, you'll be calling me and we'll cheat again.

    [Chorus]

    To be your first again.
    Why can't this feeling end?
    To be your first again.

    [Chorus x2]
