THE SECOND TIME AROUND
Luther Vandross
(album: ANY LOVE - 1988)


(If at first in love you lose)
(Don't give up, try again)
And love will be better (Yeah), better than ever (Oooh Yeah)
The second time (Around) around
Ooo Yeah
Love will be better (Yeah), better than ever (Oooh Yeah)
The second time (Around) around
Yeah

So you wanted to be
Everything you'd heard him say he'd always needed
But, you're my everything and you mean the world to me
Were things that he never said

It's such a silly thing
For you to say
That you don't want love around
Don't you know that ...

Love will be better (Yeah), better than ever (Oooh Yeah)
The second time (Around), around
Ooo Yeah
Love will be better (Yeah), better than ever (Oooh Yeah)
The second time (Around)
Yeah

I wish there could be
The kind of love
Where there would be no wrong (No wrong, never be no wrong)
So that heartache and pain
And the misery of a bad love
Would all be gone

To get over the first love
Is kinda hard, baby
But, don't let it get you down
Don't you know that ...

Love will be better (Yeah), better than ever (Oooh Yeah)
The second time (Around) around
Ooo, Yeah
Love is gonna be better (Yeah)
Better than ever, (Oooh Yeah) Yeah
The second time around
Yeah

To get over the first love
Is kinda hard, baby
But, don't let it get you down
Trust me, baby
(Love will be better)
If you trust me, baby
(Better than ever) (Try me)
You can love me, baby
(The second time around)

I really do believe you should try me, baby
(Love will be better) Yeah
(Better than ever) (Try me)
Try me Yeah
(The second time around) (Around, around)

(Love will be better)
If you trust me, baby
(Better than ever)
You can love me, baby
(The second time around)
I really do believe
(Around, around)

Fade

(Love will be better)
I know
(Better than ever)
Next time it will
(The second time around)
Your love
(Around, around)
