Callahan – Second Best lyrics

Before you go
There's a couple of things
I'd like to get off my chest
Go ahead and reserve your place
In hearts for second best

I take what it is I can get
And move along
Right down to the very words
You use to keep me hangin on

A lullaby for stone hearts
Politely wrapped in gold

Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight
Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight
Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight

In the calm before the storm
I had found the strength to carry on
Oh, I wish I knew you were a
Sucker for sad songs

Something about that night wasn't quite right
The song came through the speakers like a sound track
Through the fading lights(fading lights) in both our eyes

At the end of the day
I'll send this song your way

Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight
Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight
Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight

It's not you but the moments I miss
Nothing wakes me more than a
Transparent kiss, that I fight to deny
And in the wake of the storm
I found the means to carry on
It's just the way we are,
The way we've been from the start

Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight
Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight
Sweet dreams and good night, good night, sleep tight
Hope you can't sleep, thinkin' of me tonight
