Only the Leading Role Will Do

I have always held a second place
In a heart that I loved so dear
Waiting oh so long just to see a trace
Or a tiny sign that you care

   They say that time will heal a broken heart
   And I prayed that you’d love me too
   But I just can’t play that second part
   Only the leading role will do

You had another love before I came along
How she hurt you I just don’t know
I can’t fill the shoes of your other love
So for God’s sake let me go

No I just can’t let play that second part
Lord knows I’ve tried not to let it show
Either love me now take me in your heart
Or for God’s sake let me go
