Walk beyond the boundaries of your hope
Crystal mountain made of broken dreams
Tread the waters of your illusions
Ain't nothing just what it seems
Walk away and leave me with nothing
Out of touch, you're out of time
Live one life, I'll live the other
Switch the roles, toe a different line
Once stood tall, and you played them all
Now you hit the wall — you were second to no one
Such a man when you hold her hand
But from where I stand, you're still second to me
We were young, having too much fun
We never saw the sun, we were second to no one
Now you're gone and the days grow long
I'll write you one last song — you're still second to me
Those were days of fear and pleasure
Slept on floors, showered in the gym
Now our lives are coming together
But the light is getting dim
Build up walls to keep us safe
And find a body to warm our beds
Head down, meet you at the end
But we're both in way over our heads
Last night I saw you
A glimpse of the soul that once burned
You were up on the stage
Kiss from a girl I will never forget, but
Will you remember me? Remember me?
Second to no one
Second to me
