"The Last Song Ever Written" as written by and Torquil Campbell Patrick Mcgee....
This is the last song that was ever written
After this, nothing will rhyme
This is the last time that you'll ever see us
After this, you're gonna go blind
This is the last time that there'll be a last time
You'll wake up to the day without it
This is the last time that you're gonna lose someone
After this, it's you and your friends
It's you and your friends

This is the last song that was ever written
Melody is over and done
All of the words we sing erase each other
You only need songs when you're young.
There was a strange goodbye outside the station.
There was a letter three weeks later in the mail
We didn't know we knew you 'til we lost you
You tried to leave us all alone, we wish you had failed

We're gonna sing a song without words
And a tune you haven't heard in a long time
Not since the year you were two
And she sang to you in the wintertime
And it goes la la la la

    General CommentAmy's part is something like this:

    Door open, hand (?) empty
    There's no one behind me
    You'll come to me one day
    They won't take you away
    I'll wake in the morning
    You'll stand in the doorway
    I'm here now, I'm here now
    and I'll stay here somehow
    until you can come to
    the place where they take you

    General Comment'this is the last time that you're gonna lose someone,'

    I love this song. I have been listening to it far too much, and been sad and angry and depressed and tired and furious and upset and thinking that I didn't just lose. I lost badly.

    'We didn't know we knew you till we lost you,
    You tried to leave us all alone,
    We wish that you had failed'

    I wish that you had failed.

    General CommentWhen I listened to this song a few times I noticed something particularly strange:

    The line "And a tune you haven't heard in a long time" sounds EXACTLY like a part from another older Stars song, "International Rock Star" at around 1:20 seconds into the song (maybe before or after, I don't know exactly) but the resemblance is uncanny.
