Lyrics

SECOND BEST (Mike Borok / Rick Garcia)

You say I let you down before
And it's true, I might have one or two flaws
Though I tried and tried
You were not impressed
If I can't be your perfect guy
Let me be your second best

I never give you what you need
Yes I try, but I know I won’t succeed
I see in your eyes
That I did not pass the test
If I can't be your perfect guy
Let me be your second best

You spent the night with Mister Right
Yes, I know where you’ve been
I wouldn’t mind the pain I’m in
If you’d love me half as much as him

You spent the night with Mister Right
Yes, I know where you’ve been
He’ll leave today and that’s OK
I could see you when he’s gone away

You say we’re better off apart
If that’s true, it’s bound to break my heart
Why would you deny
Such a practical request?
If I can't be your perfect guy
Let me be your second best
