1. second chances


they say lightning don't strike in the same place twice, i believe
if it could, would it break me in two or make me anew, i believe

put your heart on the top shelf for the world to see
i can feel someone sweeping me off my feet
look at me, look at me now
my second chance just came around

missed you like a dream that ended when i woke
never got to the ending, one can only hope
it will play out in the sequel, happy ending on a silver screen
i see the actors' winning, hey, could that be me?

to all those lonely nights when i knocked on the sky, i believe
did ya ever think that worried life would find a reprieve, i believe

ready to quit trying, ready to step aside
ask for forgiveness and accept this tethered life
then you came along and you cut me loose
the way the wind takes a hot air balloon

my second chance just came around
