[Verse 1] We were the French club dropouts But we never got excused from class The secretary must have been high To turn a blind eye on us sneaking out back And we were pregnant on the balcony And you caught me with a cigarette I never put the thing on my lips Just crushed it and spit on where I laid it to rest [Chorus] I was the best at being second place But now I'm just the runner-up At being the second one you think of every day Before you go back to one [Verse 2] We were the law school rejects So we quarrelled at the bar instead Shot out in four words or less You want a jail, you want a mess, you have the right to drink less Then we were floating on a balcony And I fell into a trampoline I never should've looked for a hand From an invisible pushmi-pullyu pushin' on me [Chorus] I was the best at being second place But now I'm just the silver you dread And only in the shape of a bullet Am I ever the shape you see when you wake up dead [Bridge] So will you cauterize the bleeding or bastardize the meaning? I'm the one worth seeing As a waif, a friend, I guess that's the extent More than assisted when you cut inside the paper To project it from the lighthouse and eject it out into the void [Outro] I was the best at being second place Oh, I was the best at being second place I was the best at being second place Oh, I was the best at being second place I was the best at being second place But now I'm just the runner-up And only the second one you think of every day
