Lyrics:

My eyes are open wide
By the way I made it through the day
I watch the world outside
By the way I’m leaving out today

I just saw Hayley’s comet she waved
Said “why you always running in place?
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in the stratosphere”

Tell my mother, tell my father
I’ve done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I’m not angry, I’m just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

Please don’t try one tear for me
I’m not afraid of what I have to say
This is my one and only voice
So listen close, it’s only for today

Here is my chance
This is my chance

One of my favorite songs. My son (age 12) is so moved by this song he wrote an essay on what the song means to him for school. That is when you know these are great songs. They touch everyone. Love you Shinedown!!!!

I wish I could have said this to my Dad when I told him I was getting married. He says Damn fool. Got married headed to Vietnam. She was there when I returned for my second chance. Been married now for 42 years and I found Shinedown. Life is truely amazing..

Love it...reminds me of a quote I love: "the biggest mistake you can make is being afraid to make one"

Two weeks after my Mothers death I found myself on the grassy lawn of Merriweather Post pavilion transcended by the live music and a single song. Second Chance was a pentacle moment in my healing and echoes to my core each time I hear it.
A second chance is not by chance, you have to open your heart, mind and ears to find your way-music is everywhere-turn it up!!
