"Make It Last" as written by Angie Stone, Jonathan D. Richmond and Juanita M. Wynn....
There's a lot on my mind so I guess that I'll take it one thing at a time, still sometimes I can't help but wonder why...
I sit around all day and I waste my whole damn life away, still thinkin' bout' just what there is to say.

(Chorus #1)
Should I say goodnight???
...go to bed, turn out the fucking light and leave you shining in the past. Should I try and forget???
...even though next week it's something I'll regret. Or, should I try and make it last?
I think about the day when I felt you'd throw it all away to try and make me feel like I'm the one.
You were my best friend, and I never ever thought those days would end but now it seems like they are gone.

(Chorus #2)
What more can I say???
...I never wanted it to be this way, And where the hell is yesterday???
...We sure had a blast! I'm sorry that we're living in the past, should we try and make it last?

(Repeat chorus #1)

    General CommentA great song to listen to if you're pissed at you're signifigant other. Also a great live song. I've never seen such a mass explosion of energy from the crowd as when Kris struck up the first few chords of this one. Incredible

    General Commenti have had the wierdest relationship with this guy and no matter what phase that I was/am in the relationship (were best friends) it relates to us. It's ceepy, but this song always makes me feel good. The one line that somes up our relationship is:
    I think about the day
    when I felt you'd throw it all away
    to try to make me feel like I'm the one.
    You were my best friend,
    and I never ever thought those days would end
    but now it seems like they are gone

    ok so maybe its more than one line, but this song is excellent
