2nd One In Line


Never had a call to hope im OK.
Never been asked... if I had a nice day.

And never given, a single chance to shine,
as I am always...the 2nd one in your line.

Never held in a special loving way.
Never told I was missed, when I went away.

And never even told, that I may look fine,
as I am always...2nd in that line.

Never wanted more than I got.
Never been struck by a cupid arrow that`s shot.

And never really told...that I want you to be mine,
as it always seems...i`m the 2nd one in line.

Have never known the love I get to see.
Never felt someones, whole want for me.

And I have never yet seen...any other damn sign,
that tells me any different...that I am not always...The 2nd one, in that friggin line.
