Last Love Song

Written 1994

Tab

when the candle burned to a cold, cold stump,
as our path to its end had come,
we yelled and sword like a couple of jerks,

it’s the last love song, nothing worse than last love song..
when the poses all erode away,
and the facts of things shine clear as day,
instead of vows, there’s an open sore,
it’s the last love song, nothing more than the last love song…
+++ we could rip the sky wide open,
+++ but you know that only hate would win,
+++ and all your friends, the wise ones, swear they
+++ knew it way back when, back where we begin…

yeah, Tom, Dick and Harry say they knew it all along,
just how it started and where it went wrong,
with suspicion as your constant friend,
the last love song can begin..
+++ we could rip the sky wide open,
+++ but you know that only hate would win, if we do that again,
+++ and all your friends, the wise ones, swear they
+++ knew it way back when, back where we begin…

when the poses all erode away,
and the facts of things shine clear as day,
instead of vows, there’s an open sore,
it’s the last love song, nothing more than the last love song…
