Ooh yeah yeah yeah
Tell me how did I ever got myself into this position
And why didn't I follow my intuition
I thought that you were different
But all the times you went missing
You were with someone else

It's none of my business
Don't tell me all about you and her
How you tried to break it off I'm not concerned
All I care about is you putting me first
You never put me first...

[Chorus:]
I won't be second best
We should have left this at a simple kiss
Now I'm such a mess
I won't be second best
Your heart is not in this
I know what I'm feeling
This ain't gonna last
I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best

What did I ever do to deserve this treatment?
How I wish you told me the secrets you were keeping
All this time I was thinking I'm the only one
In love with you, I was so dumb
Don't spare my heart

It's none of my business
Don't tell me all about you and her
How you tried to break it off I'm not concerned
All I care about is you putting me first
You never put me first...

[Chorus:]
I won't be second best
We should have left this at a simple kiss
Now I'm such a mess
I won't be second best
Your heart is not in this
I know what I'm feeling
This ain't gonna last
I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best

I'm gonna let you be
It's not too late to finally see

[Chorus:]
I won't be second best
We should have left this at a simple kiss
Now I'm such a mess
I won't be second best
Your heart is not in this
I know what I'm feeling
This ain't gonna last
I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best
Second best, second best,
Oh no, I won't be second best
