Megan Slankard Second Best Lyrics

Last updated:

I'm being hopelessly optimistic—you're an honest crook
The poor reputation your love gets should make you look
It gets pretty ugly
I'm clearly misunderstood
I'm second best and that's pretty good

I need extra time to see
If those plastic glasses are half full or half empty
It's a sure bet my life's an organized mess
But I'm second best and that's pretty good

I have drawn a
I've drawn a
I've drawn a blank
All those years I was getting old
I can't remember though I must have been told
I was your only one a million times
If you told me once it was a lie

It's after dark
Must be light again
'Twas a near miss
Must have hit 'em
He took everything all that glittered
He said “now then, we mustn't be bitter”

It's a little big, but I guess my dream's okay
I can make it if I start today
We're alone together in this relation
Don't feel real, must be a genuine imitation

I have drawn a
I've drawn a
I've drawn a blank
All those years I was getting old
I can't remember though I must have been told
I was your only one a million times
If you told me once it was a lie

Fuzzy logic, you say, but who really cares
It's an exact estimation everywhere
I didn't realize but it's no good to be mad
I'm second best and that's pretty bad
