Second Chance ft Nicola Jayne

Intro:

Alright listen up yeah coz I’ve got something to say
You know when you’re out and you see someone you like the look of
But you’re just too scared to go a chat to them?
We’ve all been there
I just want you to know, whether you’re a guy or girl
I feel your pain and I’m with you
Fellas first, let’s go!

Verse 1:

We all know the feeling
When you see a pretty girl and you wanna start speaking
But you can’t think of anything to say
Your mind goes blank and your heart starts beating
So you make your excuses to leave it
Telling yourself there’s no way to achieve it
“She’s with all her mates anyway”
You don’t wanna to disrupt the convo that she’s deep in
So you throw the towel in
And feel a sense of relief as you get another round in
But before long you’re scowling
Coz you just clocked another guy start prowling
You try and tell yourself not to worry
She’d never get with a guy that ugly
But now she’s playing with her hair
Laughing at his jokes and they’re not even funny
What?! That should’ve been you
And if you had balls it could’ve been too
You imagined it all going wrong
But if you’d just tried then it wouldn’t be true
Now you’re kicking yourself on the way home
Tryna use everything else as a scapegoat
“She wasn’t that fit anyway”
But you know that you’ve only got yourself to blame though
… and that’s the worst part
You should’ve moved when you had the first chance
You vow that you’ve learned your lesson
And it happens again you’ll talk to the girl fast
If only you could turn back time
You’d pluck up the courage to go and say “Hi”
But now you’ll never know what could’ve happened
And you’ll wonder about it for the rest of your life

Chorus:

If only you could turn the clock back
If only you could have a second go
If only you had taken the chance
Things might be different but now you’ll never know

Right? But girls, I know it’s not always easy for you either
I think as guys, we get so wrapped up in the way we’re thinking
We don’t stop to consider what it’s like for you lot
So it’s only right, that we get to hear your side of the story too
Ready? Let’s go!

Verse 2:

You all know the feeling
When you’re out with the girls at a bar for the evening
You see a guy that you like
And start giving off vibes in the hope that they’ll reach him
But he just doesn’t seem to receive ‘em
No matter how blatant you make it
So you assume he’s not into you
And go back to chatting to your mates that you came with
But before long another guy approaches
And it’s clear that he just wants to get lucky
He’s not your type but you’re too polite
So you laugh at his jokes even though they’re not funny
But pretty soon he can sense that it’s hopeless
So he makes his excuses to leave
You’re relieved but it’s only at that point you notice
The other guy’s nowhere to be seen
The night carries on in a similar fashion
You and your friends just wanna hit the dancefloor
But you can’t coz it’s full of guys grinding and grabbing
And using chat up lines you’ve heard before
Your patience starts wearing thin
And you can even feel your eyelid twitching
You snap at the next guy who comes over
Who now thinks all women are bitches
You go home and start asking yourself
“Why do I just attract losers and creeps?”
Why was the guy from the start not on it
Maybe there’s something that’s wrong with me
If only you could turn back time
You’d pluck up the courage to go and say “Hi”
But now you’ll never know what could have happened
And you’ll wonder about it for the rest of your life

Chorus:

If only you could turn the clock back
If only you could have a second go
If only you had taken a chance
Things might be different but now you’ll never know

But what if we didn’t have to wonder? What if we turn back time?
Would you make the most of it, or let fear get the better of you?
Let’s go back now and see how much better this whole night coulda gone.
Starting with the fellas, once again – let’s go.

Verse 3:

We all know the feeling
When you see a pretty girl and you wanna start speaking
You feel the fear in your chest
But you do it anyway coz these moments are fleeting
You start walking and don’t waste your time
Coz you wanna get there before you change your mind
She’s talking but you don’t wanna wait
So you excuse yourself and start saying “Hi…
“This might sound a little forward
But I just saw you and I thought you looked gorgeous
And I knew if I didn’t come over
I’d be full of remorse for being overly cautious”
She pauses…
And the silence it causes is awfully awkward
But then she says ‘It’s nice to meet you’
And flashes a smile that’s practically flawless…
<Girls!>
Your absorbed in the conversation
Coz it’s more interesting than the boring questions
That your often faced with in this situation
Like “What’s your name and what’s your occupation?”
You chat about all the interests you share
As you go and sit somewhere a bit more comfy
– And now you’re playing with your hair
And laughing at his jokes coz they’re actually funny!
Your mates come and try and drag you away
But you tell them it’s OK because you wanna stay
It’s the first person you’ve met in ages
That you’d actually be happy to see the next day
If only you could turn back time…
Then you wouldn’t do a damn thing different
Coz you took a risk and it paid off
But just imagine for a moment you didn’t

Outro:

That’s the moral of the story people
If you see someone you like the look of – just go chat to ‘em.
Coz what’s the worst that could happen?
They’re not gonna shout at you
Tthey’re not gonna throw a drink over you
And even if they do – at least you’ve got a funny story to tell
