Second Best
The impact

The aftershave

The European cigarettes

The taxi

The alcohol

That lingers on your breath

The lipstick

The street lamp

The woolen overcoat

The front desk

You turn yourself

It isn't over yet



Second best, oh second best

I can learn to live with this

Plus I really need a rest

After all what's wrong with second best?

What's wrong with second best?



The motel

The distances

Cave into kisses cold and wet

Familiar exchanges

Like needle pulling thread

The empty movements

That once were so inspired

Desperate attempts to fan the flame

Without the fire

The mattress creeps beneath

The symphony of misery and cum

Still we lay jerking back and forth

And blurring into one



Second best, oh second best

I can learn to live with this

Plus I really need a rest

After all what's wrong with second best?

What's wrong with second best?
