(Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen)

Love is lovelier
The second time around
Just as wonderful
With both feet on the ground
It's that second time
You hear your love song sung
Makes you think, perhaps,
That love, like youth,
Is wasted on the young

Love's more comfortable
The second time you fall
Like a friendly home
The second time you call

Who can say what led us to
This miracle we've found?
There are those who bet
Love comes but once, and yet
I'm oh so glad we met
The second time around

Love's more comfortable
The second time you fall
It's like a friendly home
The second time you call

I wanna ask you
What led us to this miracle we've found?
There are those who bet
Love comes but once, and yet
I'm oh so glad we met
The second time around
