Second Chance

Rewrite of the song by the same name by the band, Shinedown

My eyes are open wide
By the way I have the proof now that you're gay
I broke somewhere inside watching that tape
By the way I'm kicking your sorry butt out today
I just saw how you swallowed his Halley's Comet
Can't believe you said to him
'Why don't we go on back to my girlfriend's place? '
'Baby, I'll be your man in the moon.'
'I''ll disappear for you erotically into your stratosphere.'

Too bad for you, lover
Now we're so over
I've done the best I can
Sick to death of this twisted love life
I hope our kids will understand
I'm just too angry to let you be staying
So long, loser
Don't think you'll be gettin' a second chance

Please don't cry one crocodile tear to try and sway me
I'm not taking back what I have to say
This is my one and only choice
So listen close
We're over as of today

I just saw how you swallowed his Halley's Comet
Can't believe you said to him
'Why don't we go on back to my girlfriend's place? '
'Baby, I'll be your man in the moon.'
'I''ll disappear for you erotically into your stratosphere.'

Too bad for you, lover
Now we're so over
I've done the best I can
Sick to death of this twisted love life
I hope our kids will understand
I'm just too angry to let you be staying
So long, loser
Don't think you'll be gettin' a second chance

There is no second chance
You're not gettin' a second chance!

Too bad for you, lover
Now we're so over
I've done the best I can
Sick to death of this twisted love life
I hope our kids will understand
I'm just too angry to let you be staying
So long, loser
Don't think you'll be gettin' a second chance
You're not gettin' a second chance
You're not gettin' a second chance
