I will always be second best in your eyes
I will always be here, and you can have your fun
But when the day is over, you go back
To her.

We talk and laugh and joke
And everything is a blissful blur
And I can pretend.
I can forget about the other one
But, I know I will never be first
I can never stand equal
With her.

You can tease and play
You wink at me with those laughing eyes
You tell me I mean something to you
But what am I in your mind?
Just a mere substitute
For her?

You can use me and take me
Leave me and break me
But... never forget me.
Never forget that while you can move on,
I'll still be trapped by you,
By your words, by your touch.

I will always be second best in your eyes
But for a moment,
I can pretend that I was first.
