"Last Days on Earth" as written by Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal and Charlton Clay Pettus....
Tired of this elegant life
With the best will in the world
It's a thorn in your side

Dazed, not a little confused
Let the patient do the work
They got nothing to lose

I told you
I'd hold you
'til the last days on earth

Ties that are tested and tried
Like the crushing of the waves
We'll be lost in the tide

Talk away the pain for the very last time
Like an echo in a cave
Let it die in your mind

I told you
I'd hold you
'Til the last days on earth

If you should fall into these opened arms
You would be blessed not just bemused
Wake up their mind love is alonely world
Where nothing on earth lies like a truth

Ties that are tested and tried
Like the crushing of the waves
We'll be lost in the tide

Talk away the pain for the very last time
Like an echo in a cave
Let it die in our mind

I told you
I'd hold you
'Til the last days on earth

    General CommentEasily the best track on "Everybody Loves A Happy Ending".

    But what's up with that album title?

    Methinks Roland's been spending a li'l too much time at the massage parlour after his tennis matches! lol
