"The Last Song" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett and Nate Mendel....
This is the sound
The here and the now
You got to talk the talk, the talk, the talk
To get it all out

I listen
I listen
I listen

But you're out of tune
You're so out of tune

This is the last song (This is the last song)
This is the last song
That I will dedicate to you

Something I've found
Yea, That want to turn around
You got to walk the walk, the walk, the walk
To make any ground

You're pushing
You're pushing
You're pushing

But there ain't no room
No there ain't no room

This is the last song (This is the last song)
This is the last song (This is the last song)
That I will dedicate to you
I made my peace
And now I'm trough
This is the last song
That I will dedicate to you

And yours is a name
I will never name again
I will never name again

We pretend it doesn't matter
We pretend it all away
We pretend it all away

We pretend
We pretend
We pretend

But it ain't no use
This is the last song (This is the last song)
This is the last song (This is the last song)
That I will dedicate to you
I made my peace
And now I'm through

This is the last song
That I will dedicate to you
To you
To you
To you

    General CommentAnyone think this could possibly be directed at Courtney Love? He's written several songs directed at (or about) her in the past, maybe this is him making his peace and moving on.

    It's a possibility at least...

    General CommentEatcarpet shutup! This is a site for people to share their opinions, not to have people tell them they are a stupid !@#$. I noticed you didn't have an opinion so you shouldn't have posted anything.

    This song being about Courtney Love makes since. I can't think of another person it would be about.

    General CommentItrytobreathe, That was initially what I thought too when I heard "This is the last song I'll dedicate to you." Then I heard, "Made my peace, now I'm through" and thought that could mean that he's come to terms with Cobain's death and he's not as angry with Courtney any more. Just my thoughts.

    General CommentFirstly Eatcarpet keep ya negative thinking to yourself by, well eating a carpet i guess. And Secondly the song Stacked Actors (my fav ff song) was directed specifically at Courtney Love so yes, Dave Grohl has written songs about Courtney Love.

    General CommentI can't listen to this song and not hear the same riff from "Learn to fly"....they both sound very close.
