2nd Best To None

Second best to none
It's a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge
Second best to none

It’s good to be a friend
You always say that you can trust me
To the bitter end
I guess I never said
But there are complications
It should be pretty clear
It is to every soul around around us
Only not to you, it would appear
There has to be a moment
When the time is right for revelations

Second best to none
It's a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge
Second best to none

Every runner-up is a rival to defeat
You don’t see them fall, I’m too discreet
'Cause I don’t mind
Not being number one
Long as I am
Second Best to None

Your arm around my waist
Reminds a fool like me of
What I’m not allowed to taste
To feel you close is wonderful and devastating...
Your hip against my hip
The tightness in my chest
Each time you take my hand
I'll never lose the grip
I want to blurt it out
And yet I hold my tongue
Forever waiting

Second best to none
It's a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge
Second best to none

So maybe now tonight
As we check in
I notice that the bar in this hotel
Just seems so right
A perfect place for candid talk
In all discretion
Time at last
For my confession

Second best to none
It's a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge
Second best to none

I wanna be your number one
But I’m OK with
Second best to none
I'm OK with
Second best to none
