My heart just sank the moment I, saw you,
You’re the image of a girl, that I used to know.
Don’t be alarmed if it seems hard, for me to explain,
But every detail of your face, makes me recall the name.
Hmm I'm treading water,
I keep, treading water!

Maybe it’s another chance,
To mug myself again!
Maybe it’s another chance,
I’m sure I'll mess things up in the same way
Maybe it’s another chance,
To mug myself again

Can you forgive the things I do,
That I can’t amend?
Not the way I yearn for her,
I hope you can’t pretend
Girl you’re a fire and you'll find,
That I want to get burnt,
No matter what you can teach me,
I’m sure I’ll never learn.
Hmmm treading water,
I keep, treading water

Maybe it’s another chance,
To mug myself again
Maybe it’s another chance,
I’m sure I'll mess things up in the same way
Maybe it’s another chance,
To mug myself again

It’s my concentration,
Seems spread too thin,
And when you speak, my eyes glaze over
I’m sorry girl, it’s not you it’s her

And you're another chance,
To mug myself again
Baby you're another chance,
I’m sure I'll mess things up in the same way
Baby it’s another chance
Baby it's another chance
To mug myself again,
Baby you're another chance,
I'm sure I'll mess things up in the same way.
Baby It's another chance,
To mug myself again.
