Laufey – Second Best Lyrics

Laufey Second Best Lyrics

I’ll never forget how stupid in love I felt
I’ll always regret how I couldn’t ever tell
That you walked a little faster, left me behind
Kissed me with somebody else in mind
I loved you so much that I settled for less
Oh, you were my everything, I was your second best

Lying awake, I’d watch as you’d dream at night
Nightingale singing half-hearted lullabies
Well, you swung me around in that midsummer dance
Held me in close as you thought of your past
I love way too much, oh, this hurts to confess
Oh, you were my everything, I was your second best

You’ve given me nothing to miss
Honestly, life has been much better since I spoke to you last
Why am I still wondering if I stand a chance or if you’d have me back?

Everyone warned me you were a bad idea
I never listen, maybe I will next year
When I’ve walked a little further into my life
Fallen in love and left you behind
But I’m still a little in love with this mess
Oh, you were my everything, I’m just your second best
Second best
