    One Last Second Chance

    I'm the guy who has always been there for everyone else; before I would have shouted this from the rooftops as a badge of honor, as a thing of courage in the face of a world I thought was too cold. I'm the guy who always tried to do right by others; naively, foolishly. I'm the...

    I Want A Chance To Get My Life Back
