The Last Song


Written: 1999
Released: 2005 on 'Mr Jeays'



Remember you told me
You make me feel special
I made you feel special
If just for a while
I let you use me
When you were lonely
I lived for you only
I helped you to smile


If time were a tailor
He'd stitch us together
If time were a tailor
He'd sew us again
But time is a healer
Who kills all his patients
Time is a healer
Who heals us in vain

Remember the daylight
Coming over the South Downs
The tide of the morning
Washing night time away
The words we had written
In the sands of our silence
With fingers and kisses
All washed away




If time were a soldier
He'd fight for our future
If time were a soldier
He'd lead us again
But time is a healer
Who kills all his patients
Time is a healer
Who heals us in vain

So this is the last song
I ever will write you
I've loved you forever
I've forgotten how long
And this is the last song
I ever will play you
I long to be with you
But how long can I long

And this is the last song
I ever will sing you
This is the last song
Till I'm dead and gone
This is the last song
I ever will write you
I don't pretend I don't love you
But...
This is the last song
I ever will play you
I don't pretend I don't love you
But...
This is the last song
I ever will sing you
I don't pretend I don't love you
But...
