Since you been gone
I feel my life slipping away
I look to the sky
And everything is turnin' gray
All I made was one mistake
How much more will I have to pay
Why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget about the past

Chorus:

When love makes this sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you been gone I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

So this is love
Standing in the pouring rain
I fooled on you
But she never meant a thing
And I know I ain't got no right
To ask you to sympathize
But why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget the past

Chorus

I never loved her
I never needed her
She was willing and that's all there is to say
Don't forsake me
Please don't leave me now
A heart needs a second chance

You've been gone, and I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

Please forgive me and forget it
I was wrong and I admit it
Why can't we talk it over
Why can't you forget about, forget the past

(A heart needs a second chance...) When love makes it sound bad
(My heart needs a second chance...) Don't put me down, babe

You've been gone, and I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over I just can't say goodbye

(A heart needs a second chance...) When love makes it sound bad
(My heart needs a second chance...) Don't put me down, babe.....

    This song is talking about that since he lost his girl, nothing has been going right, or has been happy for him, all he made was one mistake and now she's gone...
