"Last Days of Summer" as written by Neil Boshart and Shane Told....
The bright light beams
From her eyes
Like broken glass
Or a broken heart
Who would have guessed?
You'd leave me here
Beneath my eyes I feel the tears
I hold back

I won't leave, leave this way again
I won't leave this way

As my legs
They start to shake
I feel nothing
I wanted you (I wanted you)
I needed you
But you weren't there for me this time (there for me)

I won't leave, leave this way again
I won't leave this way

You that I loved!
That I needed!
You weren't there
Not this time!
You!

What can I do?!
I was supposed to love you!
What can I say?!

I won't leave
What can I do?!
I was supposed to help you!
I cannot feel you!

Last breath I feel!
Warm air intake!
Last summer's day!
Last one I take!
For you!

I won't leave!
Leave this way!
I won't leave
Lost it all!
All for you!
I won't leave

When the shadows beam!
Misery remains!
I won't leave this time

    General CommentNo comments on this song?

    I love this song, so much emotion and some very relatable lyrics. Some of the lyrics I think are quite self explanatory really.
    For me this when the reality of someone leaving you really hits you. And you've fallen for somebody so badly, that you need them, and you rely on them to be there for you. And when it fucks up and they're gone, you feel like you have nobody else, and you need them so bad.

    I think the last verse is suicide. He can't get over this person, and feels like he has nobody and kills himself and he's going through his last moments.

    Brilliant song!!

    General CommentThis song is effin amazing!!!!....I really payed attention to the lyrics and all I gotta say is wow...this songs has soo much emotion to it...and the first who comment before me..pretty much sumed it up...I agree with them on it being about a relationship..a relationship that has ended...and They loved them soo much..and all they wanted to do was love them...and the other person just left them there..with all this love and emotion built up and no where to dispose of it...and they finally realized that the person is not coming back..and this is the last time they will have to go through this pain...and it just pretty much ends their life bcuz it was too much pain to live with......it was unbearable...that the only way they felt like they could get out of this feeling was to end their own life.....

    idk thats what i think??....

    General CommentCan't believe that even now in 2012 this song only has 7 comments, perhaps because it seems so straight forward. Definitely one of the best on the album, has been and always will be one of my favourite tracks (especially now that August is coming to an end).
