A Second Chance
I decided to go to a party with friends I've known for years
And the first thing I noticed was a tub full of beers.
I grew up believing I could hold my own with a few
But a few became too many as the length of the party drew.
I began to stumble and check out women up and down
I finally got the hint that my friends didn't want me around.
Making my way to the door I heard, 'please, give me your keys.'
I turned and said, 'don't bother, ' as I dropped to my knees.
A pain in my stomach made me spit out every last dropp of beer
I stood up, dusted off, and grabbed a couple...
Smile Now, Cry Later
I lie awake in the middle of the night
Rehearsing the speech that would have made things right.
All I wanted was a second chance,
The moment suspended and slipped from my hands.
For all that I had in an instant is now gone
How long will I suffer, I know I've done wrong?
I wish I could change the past somehow
But I will cry later and smile right now.
All along she suspected but for me she never expected
