Dear loved one, please listen
This might be the last chance I get
I'm sorry I left you
I'm living in a world of regret
Don't cry if you can hear me
I never meant to hurt you dearly
I'm so wrong sincerely
Don't stop take life seriously

These are the last words
I'm ever gonna get to say to you
When everything falls away from you
Take these words
And know the world is not worth leaving

There's so much I've done wrong
Since I left it hit me so strong
Take my hand and let's walk through
All the times I've lied and hurt you
Those people, please love them
Don't hate them, we're not above them
You can have everything, but have nothing
Listen I've got to tell you something

These are the last words
I'm ever gonna get to say to you
When everything falls away from you
Take these words
And know the world is not worth leaving

Last words I'll ever really get to say to you
So listen very carefully to what I'm saying
Life is more than just the games you're playing
If there was ever one thing
I could ever get across to you
I'd tell you not to say the things you do
And tell my mother that I love her too
And no matter what life pulls ya through (no!)
You've got what it takes to make it through
And if I was you, I'd get on my knees and pray
Thank God in the morning for another day
Cause...

These are the last words
I'm ever gonna get to say to you
When everything falls away from you
Take these words
And know the world is not worth leaving

Last words I'll ever really get to say to you
So listen very carefully to what I'm saying
Life is more than just the games you're playing
Life is more than just the games you're playing

    General CommentThis song is about a person who kills themselves and is trying to tell his family or loved ones that it was not worth it.

    General CommentA suicide note saying that this is the last thing i'm going to say, live your life and enjoy it no matter what because otherwise before you know it, it'll all be over and you would have missed so much great stuff, and to never give up.

    General CommentI think I read somewhere that whoever wrote this song sat on a cliff and tried to write the song from the perspective of someone about to kill themselves. I dont know what part of that is true but this song is kind of like a suicide note.

    General Commentthis song always makes me cry, it reminds me of the time my boyfriend tried to kill himself and almost died. he tried to kill himself over me, although i know that wasnt the only reason. it was the hardest time in my life and i will never forget it. he realized later it wasnt worth it.

    General CommentI dont picture it as a suicide note. I think of it more like the guy killed him self and is a "ghost" trying to tell his daughter life is worth living.

    My InterpretationPeople say this song is about someone who is writing a letter to a loved one who wants to commit suicide. Thousand Foot Krutch is my all time favorite band and ive listened to all of their songs(even small to say, feel the place go boom, and heat miser) a billion times. Last Words does have lines that make you think that, but i dont really think that way because i have listened to this song and played this song on guitar for friends who want to give up their life. I feel like at times this song is someone saying an apology to someone they've hurt in other ways then suicide. Trevor McNeavan (or whoever it could apply to) is giving out an apology to his family for leaving them like they were nothing. His/Her mom doesnt feel like suicide but maybe his/her father or brother or sister or other family member who is sensitive and might have problems with suicide. The opening verse to the sounds like an apology letter so that's how it makes me think of an apology letter. This is an amazing song and i love to play for people because i do my best to show love to those who need it most. God bless:)

    Song MeaningSince that i know that TFK is a christian band i think that this song means either 1 of 2 things: A: it is the perspective of Jesus when he is dieing at the cross cause it says 2 things similar to what it says in the Bible : tell my mother i love her and in the gospel Jesus says to John " this is ur mother" and to Marry " this is ur son". and it says Those people, please love them
    Don't hate them, we're not above them
    You can have everything, but have nothing
    Listen I've got to tell you something like if i remember correctly in the Bible Jesus says something like " don't hate those who persecute me". or B this could be a letter from the future or past ( past at the time Christians were persecuted. future: when Christians are outlawed again) and the person is captured and put on death row and they are saying their last words to their loved ones. That's my opinion about the song
