"Second Chance" as written by Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling, Peter Andreas Moren and John Thomas Daniel Eriksson....
When you flew out of the nest
You made a mistake
Flew all the way back
When you got back to your den
One minute too late was already wrecked

I, I
It's a fraction of the hope but it's hard to control
I, I get this straight

You can't can't count on a second chance
The second chance will never be found
You can't can't count on a second try
The second try will never come home

You stick to what you knew before
Don't know what you like
Just made up your mind
The picture still hangs on the wall
From back in the day
When you had it all

    General CommentThis song KICKS ASS! I turned it up so loud it has probably damaged my hearing. It just picks up my attitude and makes me want to stop having a hurt leg like the day when I first saw the video. That's what got me it that video, I love. Simple but so likable for some strange reason. Some things just affect you. They look so funny in that video, like 70s type meathead characters. Kind of like a mellow aging hippie. I'm not sure I like all of their other songs, but a couple I do. I like them in rock mode quite a bit more. When I had to get up from being injured and find a way to get over the hump, this was an inspiration. So, to me, when they said 'second chance', I didn't interpret it about a break-up, I thought it's about trying to accomplish something in life and having to realize that there are a lot of set backs, and you have to jump up and down and get aggro or else you'll never get there. The second chance will never come home. I guess I could also see that as being about romance, because I know you have to reach really hard or you get the impression you might have someone slip through your fingers pretty fast. Then you'll never know what might've happened. They might move away and you don't ever see them again. And you might end up a loner, long term. But the glimmer of hope is songs like this that will jolt you to get up off your ass in life, before the door winds up closing on you.. Time is of the essence. Life is very short. Encapsulate this, very simply, in a song - "Second Chance".
