When your smile becomes the reason I breathe
And your eyes become the motive to see
But if it's better for your health
To say that love, it lives in someone else
Then all that I can say
All that I can say is

She's my last request
Everything else is suddenly taken over
And I'm my own regret
All that I wanted is out of my hands

Your thoughts of war, religion and love
Are the things that I recall when you're gone
And now I'm left without a clue
From where I stood in line, when I lost you
And all that I can say
Yes all that I can say is

She's my last request
Everything else is suddenly taken over
And I'm my own regret
All that I wanted is out of my hands
Out of my hands

When your smile becomes the reason I breathe
And your eyes become the motive to see
Then all that I can say
All that I can say is

She's my last request
Everything else is suddenly taken over
And I'm my own regret
All that I wanted is out of my hands
Out of my hands

    General CommentDavid has such a beautiful voice and beautiful lyrics to match. I saw him in concert and he's absolutely unbelievable.

    I think this song means he lost the one he loves so much, and without her, there simply is no reason to live. It almost seems like the breakup was some sort of 'death' to him because when you lose the person who meant the world to you, a part of you seems to die inside and when someone is asking him what his last request is before his 'death', his last request is her. She's all he wants.

    I think it's well done, like all his others. He's an amazing artist. :)
