"Last This day" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim and Dido Armstrong....
Lines to the skin
That have seen
Neither sun nor sin

Tubes to the mouth
Cannot laugh or sigh
Or even cry

A drop in the ocean
A second and all time
One stop in the endless sky

But you mean
The whole world to me
You're an island of light
So please last this day
Stay one more day
Please last this day
Stay one more day

Stay one more
Stay one more
Stay one more day

Just one more
Just one more
Just one more day

All this madness around us
You are knowing
And so still

You were made in love
Grew in hope
Were born in pain

You have them running round
Trying to make you breath again

One tiny link
In and endless chain

But you mean
The whole world to me
You're an island of light
So please last this day
Stay one more day
Please last this day
Stay one more day
Please last this day
Stay one more day

    General CommentBeautiful song. The meaning is pretty clear to me, a still-born infant. Spoken from the mother's (or at least one of the parents, just seems maternal due to the female vocals) point of view, this song is about the child's struggle to survive and how much said child means to the speaker.

    General Commentthe baby is not still born - there is hope - i picture a mother holding her newborn in a neonate ICU - lots of them pull through so i prefer to think it may have a happy end - better that way.
