38 Special — Second Chance lyrics

Since you been gone
I feel my life slipping away
I look to the sky
And everything is turnin' gray
All I made was one mistake
How much more will I have to pay
Why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget about the past

Chorus:

When love makes this sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you been gone I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

So this is love
Standing in the pouring rain
I fooled on you
But she never meant a thing
And I know I ain't got no right
To ask you to sympathize
But why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget the past

Chorus

I never loved her
I never needed her
She was willing and that's all there is to say
Don't forsake me
Please don't leave me now
A heart needs a second chance

You've been gone, and I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

Please forgive me and forget it
I was wrong and I admit it
Why can't we talk it over
Why can't you forget about, forget the past

(A heart needs a second chance...) When love makes it sound bad
(My heart needs a second chance...) Don't put me down, babe

You've been gone, and I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

(A heart needs a second chance...) When love makes it sound bad
(My heart needs a second chance...) Don't put me down, babe.....
