"Last Request" as written by and Paolo Giovanni/benbrook Nutini....
Slow down, lie down
Remember it's just you and me
Don't sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be

I just want you closer
Is that alright?
Baby let's get closer tonight

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time just go there
Lay down beside me

Oh, I've found, that I'm bound
To wander down that one way road
Oh, and I realize all about your lies
But I'm no wiser than the fool I was before

I just want you closer
Is that alright?
Baby let's get closer tonight

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time just go there
Ooh, lay down beside me

Oh, baby, baby, baby
Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me

Oh, oh, yeah, lay down beside me

One last time let's go there
Lay down beside me

    General CommentI think everyone kinda gets the song, so I won't offer any more insight really... but this song means so much to me. i definitely know what it's like to know that there's no future with someone, but you don't want it to end. My ex fits the description perfectly.. and for some time after we broke up, he would still come up for the weekend and stay with me. We both knew we wouldn't work out, but some part of me couldn't let go of him - but this song is exactly what that feeling sounds like: lyrics, tempo, melody, and his beautiful raw voice. the emotion is definitely there.

    Song MeaningHe wants to end the relationship the way it started, with meaning and love and warmth. He ultimately wishes it didn't have to end but it's clearly just a lost battle and holding someone you love for the last time, leaves a beautiful memory and you try to forget all the bad that's gone on and just remember the love you have for each other.
