  • I know you come a long way, baby
    But you don't need
    That heart of stone, no
    To prove that you can
    Do it, do it, baby
    You can make it on your own

    But you can't keep
    Running away from love
    Cause the first one
    Let you down, no, no, no

    And though others
    Try to satisfy you, baby
    With me, true love
    Can still be found

    Love can still be found
    (The second time around) ooh
    The second time is
    So much better, baby
    (The second time around)
    And I make it better
    Than the first time

    You know I really love you
    And I paid for my mistakes
    Yes, I did, girl
    The more I try to
    Hide my feelings, baby
    This old heart gets in the way

    And love won't let me wait
    (The second time around)
    Girl, believe me
    It's better than the first time
    (The second time around)
    Let's do it one more time

    Say it again
    (The second time around)
    All that I've been through
    I'd do it again
    Just as long as I'm with you
    (The second time around)
    Aah, the second time

    I'll make it so good to you, baby
    I'll make it so good to you

    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Talking bout the second time

    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Not like the first time
    (Not like the first time)
    Talking bout the second time

    You can't keep running away from love
    Cause the first one let you down
    And though others try
    To satisfy you, baby
    With me, true love
    Can still be found

    (The second time around)
    Gonna keep you mine
    The second time, baby
    (The second time around)
    I'll know what to do just
    As long as I'm with you

    (The second time around)
    Do it one more time, say it again Writer/s: LEON III SYLVERS, WILLIAM SHELBY
