"The Last Unicorn" as written by and Jimmy Webb....
When the last eagle flies, over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars, at the last dusty fountain
In the shadow of the forest, though she may be old and worn
They will stare unbelieving
At the Last Unicorn

When the first breath of winter, through the flowers is icing
And you look to the north, and a pale moon is rising
And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn
In the distance hear her laughter
It's the Last Unicorn
I'm alive I'm alive

When the last moon is cast, over the last star of morning
And the future is past, without even a last desperate warning
Then look into the sky where through, the clouds a path is formed
Look and see her how she shimmers, it's the Last Unicorn
I'm alive I'm alive!

    My InterpretationI always loved this song even when I was a child. Most people see them as a myth and full of magic. It takes a bit of faith to believe in magic and unicorns. The song is speaking about how even though everything appears like it's falling apart, there is still magic, still faith, alive somewhere if you look for it.
