By The Numbers

A first won't happen twice.

A first won’t happen twice.

You can’t play by numbers
Not unless you understand what those numbers mean
A first won’t happen twice

Back to square one, I don’t think I’m gonna go there anymore
I’m beyond the beginning
Results are what we make them
Are even odds too much to ask for?
Colour outside the lines

You are the question minus the answer
You’re two parts lost & one part found
You will follow through until you’re on the other end of an equal sign
Right there at a moment’s grace, taking in everything

Sometimes no matter how much you do, it all amounts to nothing
From time to time
You can only count on a silver-lining & a calm state of mind when hearts beat violent
Had countless losses
Take it all away & all that’s left is neccessary

You can’t play by numbers
Not unless you understand what those numbers mean
A first won’t happen twice

A first won’t happen twice
Wait for it
A first won’t happen twice
