You feel like yesterday, all tattered and worn away
And you say you don't care if I leave ya back there.
When you were open wide and let everyone inside
And they left you one by one
When the damage was done.

Well I know what you're thinking...
Sometimes you feel so second hand,
Passed over, left over, and just don't understand.
I guess you gave your best to every one of them.
What a shame you think they came and left you second hand.

You feel like yesterday, tired and torn away.
Though you say you don't care I'm gonna find you somewhere.
Remember who you are, you were always the brightest star
And though you're not shining now,
I'll get you back there somehow

'Cause everyone has been there...
When you feel so second hand,
Passed over, left over, and just don't understand.
I guess you gave your best to every one of them.
What a shame you think they came and left you second hand

And I know what you're thinking,
The lines upon your face
Were left there by the smile that went without a trace

Well I will be there,
We'll get you back to that place

Where you don't feel so second hand,
Passed over, left over, and just don't understand.
I guess you gave your best to every one of them.
What a shame you think they came and left you second hand,
Passed over and left over, ya just don't understand.
I guess you gave your best to every one of them,
What a shame you think they came and left you second hand,
Left you second hand, left you second hand.
