Mike & The Mechanics — Everybody Gets A Second Chance lyrics

A single failure
A little slip
A misdemeanour
A little trip
Does this condemn me
Lock me away?
Before you turn the key
I have one more thing to say
To make amends
Maybe be friends

Chorus:

Everybody gets a second chance
The circumstance to say I'm sorry
I'd like to tell you in advance
Take my chance and tell you
I'm sorry too

A little stumble
A little fall
Inconsequential
Nothing at all
Now there was someone
I heard him say
That the best laid plans
Sometimes go astray
So don't be surprised
If I offer you no alibis

[Chorus:]

Everybody gets a second chance
The circumstance to say I'm sorry
I'd like to tell you in advance
I'll take my chance and tell you I
Take my chance and tell you
I love you

[Chorus: X2]

Everybody wants a
Everybody needs a
Everybody gets a second chance
