my lucks been pushed too far
get wrecked in some bar
well i've lost it
my foots on a nail

the dark winters, snows bright
please stay here tonight
well i'll cry my face
straight through my pillow

some things last forever
why can't this last forever
nothing lasts forever
i hope this lasts forever, oh

more sex,
more goodbyes
i love you and i
won't let myself let you go

some things last forever
why can't this last forever?
nothing lasts forever
i hope this lasts forever, oh

    General CommentI traveled to Iceland this past spring and I lived for a month with a boy from Holland. It was perfect. We understood each other like no one could believe. I fell head over heels in love with him. Before he left he showed me this song. Needless to say, I cried my face straight through my pillow.

    General Comment"some things last forever
    why can't this last forever
    nothing lasts forever
    i hope this lasts forever, oh "

    if you switch it around a little, you get

    some things last forever
    i hope this lasts forever
    why can't this last forever
    nothing lasts forever

    sort of like a debate in his head.. i love it.

    contradiction! yay! so in love! not making sense(the song)! i cant tell if this song is happy or sad. but being so attached to someone is both i guess.

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite song on the album, it would be nice to see them go more in this direction. It is the last song, so it should carry over to the next album, right?
    ::fingers crossed::

    General CommentSuch a peaceful and easy song, and I think it's mostly about heartbreak, a relationship ending that he wanted to keep together, but nothing lasts forever.

    General CommentSounds to me like a guy meets a girl who is from out of town, they have a great time, he wishes she could stay around but alas she is only in town for one night and must be gone, never to be seen again. Seems a bit simplistic, but then again some songs are.

    General CommentProbably the catchiest and most straight forward on the album. As for meaning, I'd say it's pretty obvious.

    General CommentFavoritest song by the Stills, and i would have to say the most upbeat song on this album, I'm glad they made the songs on 'Without Feathers' in the same style as this one, I was kinda depressed with this album,Logic will break you, but its still good!

    General Commentwell i stumbled upon this song just now,
    having broken up with my boyfriend yesterday,
    getting drunk to drown my sorrows,
    and standing on a nail and hurting my foot about 10 minutes ago, how coincidental?
    "my lucks been pushed too far
    get wrecked in some bar
    well i've lost it
    my foots on a nail"
    this must be my break up song :(
    "more sex,
    more goodbyes
    i love you and i
    won't let myself let you go"

    "some things last forever
    why can't this last forever?
    nothing lasts forever
    i hope this lasts forever, oh"
