Second Time Around (Paul O'Brien)

 

I was sitting on the eight fifteen

Didnít care too much for where Iíd been

When I heard a voice

Call out down the hall

I didnít pay too much heed

But it sounded like a man in need

And I picked up on

The last thing that he said

 

ďConductor, conductor please

Iím begging on my bended knees

Canít you just

Turn this train around?

Conductor, conductor sir

Wonít you take me back to her?

And Iíll be true

Second time aroundĒ

 

I never threw a second glace

Sure Iíd get a second chance

If somewhere down the line

Iíd drop the ball

And I went on day to day

Breaking hearts along the way

Never thinking

I would ever call

 

ďConductor, conductor please

Iím begging on my bended knees

Canít you just

Turn this train around?

Conductor, conductor sir

Wonít you take me back to her?

And Iíll be true

Second time aroundĒ

 

Later in another time

I was thinking about this life of mine

And felt that Iíd turned left

Instead of right

I knew Iíd have to make a start

Sorting out this weary heart

When those words

Came back to mind

 

ďConductor, conductor please

Iím begging on my bended knees

Canít you just

Turn this train around?

Conductor, conductor sir

Wonít you take me back to her?

And Iíll be true

Second time aroundĒ
