Second Best

Woman, when it came to loving me

You know I was always second best

But can you tell me why you had to

Always leave my heart in such a mess

You kept me hidden in your darkness

Placed me on your shelf with all the rest

Until you needed a heart to break

Then you would tell me you loved me best

You would show me off to all your friends

Fill me up with all your hopes and lies

Seems you got your kicks from hurting me

Just like pulling the wings off of flies

I’ve tried so hard to stand up to you

Oh, How I have prayed to God above

To please reach into this heart of mine

And carry away all of my love

Still I hope someday you’ll settle down

And find the love you’ve always suppressed

Then you might ask for my company

And know I was never second best
