Second Chance

See the prize fighter lying on his back
It only took a second to put him down and lay him out
To put him down and lay him out
Fleeting seconds - you count the hours, you count the minutes
Clock-watching waiting for your own apocalypse
And sometimes in quieter moments you think that there are
Infinite seconds. Seconds.

And still you while away the time
Hoping that you'll be spared
You imagine that some people never die
I'm afraid to say, that ain't the truth

Seconds. There's only seconds.
No second chances.  No second guess.
And if you put together all those seconds
You begin to realise that there's 
Not much time left

To do the things you want to do
Right the wrongs.  Write the words that used to spew
From youthful lips, from fingertips, from poetry
That took a second.
It only took a second glance for you to fall in love
And now you take a second chance, staring in the mirror
Hoping against all hope that you can turn time back.
Turn it back to be wiser, but not necessarily older
In the realms, in the realms of fantasy you live
In the realms of fantasy you dwell

Trying to right the wrongs - myths to dispel
In that second glance you wanted that second chance
But there's no second chances.
