Your Last

Entry posted

About This Song: This is a re-vamped version of a song I posted in my old lyric thread, called “The Last”. It is a simple, honest love song which I haven't layered in meanings, or metaphors, because the words just speak for themselves. The story is about not being your partner's first love, but falling for them so much, that you want to be their very last. Personally, it is a song I wrote about my own relationship a couple of years ago, and it still rings true today. There's nothing like the honesty of a love song every now and again to remind you of your feelings (if they needed reminding in the first place). Please enjoy, and remember to leave a comment – nobody either thinks just "good" or "bad" so tell me what your full thoughts are! Thanks!

Your Last

The stars are playing out tonight,

Like a diamond supernova's light,

And I'm blinded by the beauty of their shine

It's funny how they feel so far,

From the two of us here in the dark,

Yet they still light up the music in your eyes

[Chorus]

Oh, I know, that it wasn't me,

To first watch you sleep,

But I'll settle for that

'Cause I know, that I'm not your first

But I'll prove what I'm worth,

To be your last

From summertime and sapphire skies,

To rainclouds and electric nights,

Memories like these, they make me feel alive

I laugh and smile to reminisce,

Confessions and a stolen kiss,

And how much I used to miss you every night

[Chorus]

Oh, I know, that it wasn't me,

To first watch you sleep,

But I'll settle for that

'Cause I know, that I'm not your first

But I'll prove what I'm worth,

To be your last

To be your last…

The stars are playing out tonight,

Like a diamond supernova's light,

And I’m blinded by the beauty of their shine

Know that you to me mean everything,

And no matter what the future brings,

I just hope the hand you're holding will be mine

[Chorus]

Oh, I know, that it wasn't me,

To first watch you sleep,

But I'll settle for that

'Cause I know, that I'm not your first

But I'll prove what I'm worth,

To be your last

Although this one is a proper song, I haven't recorded anything worthy of a download. :) It's really awesome how you're interested though - maybe I can rustle one up in the future.

Thanks very much! I feel those lines can sum up the entire song. I wanted to reflect the time we'd been together and how the original sparks are still there. :)
