Second time easy

1
When life comes and knocks you down, 
Get back up and loose that frown.
Brush off the dust of yesterday’s past
No one promised it would last
2
I know it’s easier said than done,
I promise you I’m not the only one.
It may seem dark right now
Step into the light, smile in the sun.

Chorus
Is the second time around
Better than the first?
Seems everyone is going back
To try and fill their thirst. -> -> (hold out, let guitar fade)
3
Measure bad with the good.
Oh my god we’re so misunderstood.
No one acted as they should
There is no manual to adult hood.

Chorus
Is the second time around
Better than the first?
Seems everyone is going back
To try and fill their thirst. -> -> (hold out, let guitar fade)
4
First time through
Never measured up for you
Second time coming down
Do we fly or do we drown?
5
As Harry said “My son’s grown up and moved away”
We’re leaving what we had
We have to start anew day
Reach inside and pull out your smile today

REPEAT CHORUS AND V1

“Find your own sound.  Dont be a second rateYngwie Malmsteen be a first rate you”
