"One Last Love Song" as written by Paul Heaton and Dave Rotheray....
I once had a friend who I loved from my heart
But I went on and left her 'fore I'd made a start
Now I'm moaning the blues like the rest of the charts
Take me back

So I'll cry with a limp
Just get by on a limb
Till these blue eyes of mine they are closed
So here's to an old fashioned peck on the cheek
And farewell my sweet Northern Rose

Give me one last love song
To bring you back, bring you back
Give me one last video, just dressed in black, dressed in black
Give him a chorus and that bit at the end
Where he wails on and on 'bout the loss of a friend
Let him scream loudly 'well this love could mend'
Let it die, let it die

Those bloody great ballads we hated at first
Well I bought them all, now I'm writing worse
Save us from baldness and saving the earth
Take me back

And I'll smile with a limp
And I'll love with a limp
Till the clouds disappear from above
And as the storm moves away all I can say
Is there's a towel on the door for your love

Give me one last love song
To bring you back, bring you back
Give me one last video, just dressed in black, dressed in black
Give him a chorus and that bit at the end
Where he wails on and on 'bout the loss of a friend
Let him scream loudly 'well this love could mend'
Let it die, let it die, let it die

    General CommentThese lyrics, I have to say are probably the least sarcastic of all heaton's lyrics.
    I'm pretty sure we can all relate to this song...
    The girl or guy you knew, never had the chance or guts to make a move, they've moved on and it'll always play at the back of your mind.... What if???
    The first verse reminds me so much of a friend, i actually got back in touch with her, and we're going to london together next month... very inspiring... ok i've blabbed on....

    Great lyrics. Trying to get a person you used to love back. Self explanatory.
