Lyrics

Verse 1
Every night you come home
And there's dinner on the table
Every morning you wake up
And there's breakfast on the stove
You need time with the guys
And I say that I'm fine with that
And the truth is I've learned to be.

Chorus
And I could deal with being second
But I can't live with being third
It's not even like I'm asking
Asking to be first
And I know God is number one
But I'm not even number two
Cause I just can't
Compete with you

I'm the last to fall asleep
As you face the other way
And I'm the first to wake up
Forced to face another day
Never once have you brought home flowers just to say
I love you,
And I don't expect you to.

And I could deal with being second
But I can't live with being third
It's not even like I'm asking
Asking to be first
And I know God is number one
But I'm not even number two
Cause I just can't compete......

I believed for way too long
That I was lucky to have found you
That I deserved what I got
For the things I'd done before
And maybe its true
that I do, but still...
I just wish for once
You could be
The lucky one
to be with me

And I could deal with being second, but I can't live with being third
No more sacrificing everything
Just to end up hurt
And I know God is number one
I could have lived with number two
But I just can't compete
Oh there's no one who could ever compete with you.
