The Second Time Around

THE SECOND TIME AROUND - Written by Carroll Bryant


You tell me that you won't leave, but I know you better than that
If love died, you wouldn't grieve, and baby, that's a matter of fact
Your promises always end up broken
Sex is a token
Words go unspoken
You tell me to trust in you, but I'm more smarter than an alley cat

I can't count on your love
I can't bank on your touch
Maybe you don't realize all that you found
You can't pretend with me anymore the second time around

You tell me that you're sorry, but I see through those beautiful eyes
If tomorrow was forever then you know you would sell me more lies
You're an endangered kind of species
Covered in feces
Nothing goes unpleased
You tell me to watch my mouth, but you're what it's all about

I can't count on your love
I can't bank on your touch 
Maybe you don't realize all that you found 
You can't pretend with me anymore the second time around 

There are no third and final chances for us to try and get it right 
Jump on the back of my Harley Davidson and baby I will take you for the ride 
Of your life
The way you took me on the first time
The way you're trying again this time 
I am onto you and the games you play with my mind 

 You tell me that you won't leave, but I know you better than that
If love died, you wouldn't grieve, and baby, that's a matter of fact
Your promises always end up broken
Sex is a token
Words go unspoken
You tell me to trust in you, but I'm more smarter than an alley cat

I can't count on your love
I can't bank on your touch 
Maybe you don't realize all that you found 
You can't pretend with me anymore the second time around
