What should be
Just a memory
It's like a bell that keeps on ringing
Calling me...

But I believe
What I Can't see...
And I can feel the warmth of love
Surrounding me...

So tonight I lay me down to sleep...
I pray my soul to keep...
And that your love will rescue me, for the rest of my life...
I live to say good bye...
To all the promises left behind...
Here we are you and I...
A second chance...

I have changed (I have changed)
But take the blame (take the blame)
For all the words left and spoken through the pain...
I played the game and lost in space
But I have cleansed myself by walking through the rain

So tonight I lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul to keep...
In that your love will rescue me, for the rest of my life...
I live to say good bye...
To all the promises left behind...
Here we are you and I...
A second chance...

If you listen there's a melody in how you live your life(how you live your life)
You can write the song you want to hear
And I pray (pray)
To live mine
So in the mirror speaks
It tells me you have faced your inner fears
And I'm loving this song

So tonight I lay me down to sleep and pray my soul to keep...
In that your love will rescue me, for the rest of my life...
I live to say good bye...
To all the promises left behind...
Here we are you and I...

No I not giving up...
I am here to stay...

A second chance...
A second chance...
A second chance...

    I had a very bad marriage, and i said that is it, no more marriage for me. I met a fantastic man, fine, loving,respectable,and hard working. When he asked to marry me, i was shocked, i love el, that is wat i call him, he is my husband in my head, i knew him before my sweetheart, but listening to second chance, turned my life around for the better.. Love u el

    I feel it means a second chance at this life. We may try and fail, but if you have another day and another breath, you can live and create the life you want, no matter what happened before!

    We are imperfect and make mistakes and by the grace of god and free will we are given chances to live by his word

    Some people just remember god when they're in trouble... Everyone made a mistake, we learn from our mistakes , nobody's perfect , god is love... Everyone deserve to have a second chance
