So It Goes ~ Goodbye For Now

( The ) Second Time
 
It's the second time 
I know I've seen you here before 
It's no coincidence I'm sure 
that once again my spirits soar
and the second time is always harder than the first
forgetting lines that I rehearsed, 
I fear the best, I fear the worst 
Love is great, it has ambition 
unafraid makes no condition 
when I say how much I love you 
you'll feel I've known you 
a thousand years . . .

And the second time is always harder than the first
forgetting lines that I rehearsed, 
I fear the best, I fear the worst 
 
Love is great, it has ambition 
unafraid makes no condition 
when I say how much I love you 
you'll feel I've known you 
a thousand years . . .
 
. . . a thousand years . . .
