Verse 1

On dark nights like this I wonder,

If I could have done things differently that December.

One mistake, and you lose it all.

Chorus

If life doesn't come with a manual,

Then it's only fair we all get a second chance.

But when is life ever fair?

Verse 2

Well, how about one exception?

I never meant to doubt him, wasn't my intention

To send him back behind his walls.

Chorus

If life doesn't come with a manual,

Then it's only fair we all get a second chance.

But when is life ever fair?

Bridge

When is life ever fair to me?

Standing in front of that Christmas tree,

I should have just told him, "I'm happy."

Can I rewind to that fall?

Chorus

If life doesn't come with a manual,

Then it's only fair we all get a second chance.

But when is life ever fair?

Outro

When is life ever fair?

I open my eyes,

And he's not there.
