Since you've been gone
I feel my life slippin' away
I look to the sky
And everything is turnin' grey
All I made was one mistake
how much more will I have to pay
Why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget about the past?

When love makes a sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you've been gone
I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over
I just can't say goodbye

So this is love
Standing in the pouring rain
I've called on you
'Cause she never meant a thing
And I know I ain't got the right
To ask you to sympathize.
But why can't you think it over
Why can't you forget about the past?

When love makes a sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you've been gone
I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over
I just can't say goodbye

I never loved her
I never needed her
She was willing and that's all there is to say
Don't forsake me. Please don't leave me now

A heart needs a second chance
When love makes a sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you've been gone
I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over
I just can't say goodbye

Please forgive me and forget it
I was wrong and I admit it
Why can't we talk it over
Why can't we forget about
Forget about the past
A heart needs a second chance

A heart needs a second chance
When love makes a sound babe
A heart needs a second chance
Don't put me down babe
Can't you see I love you
Since you've been gone
I've been in a trance
This heart needs a second chance
Don't say it's over
I just can't say goodbye

A heart needs a second chance
When love makes a sound babe
