I know you'll never loved me the way I love you
And I'll always be second best to you
But in my heart I'd rather have just part of you
Than all of someone else for there's no one else like you
I'd rather be the second one you've loved and not to know
This feeling that I get each time you let me hold you close
And anything to keep you with me I would do
I'm glad that I can be second best to you
[ steel ]
If it's wrong to worship you then wrong I'll be
No one else can do the things you do to me
And just what little time that you can spend with me
Means more than all the rest though I'm only second best
I'd rather be the second one...
