"Walk the Last Mile" as written by and James Grant....
I am shipwrecked in the night
I watched a girl with eyes like thin ice
Say "Dive into these pools of blue,"
But I tripped over you

I curse these cool whispering lights
I curse the things that keep me from you
Again my patience makes the climb
Will my tears buy me time?

In your light I crumble, forgot what I'd been told
I never thought that I could feel so old
You're at the center of everything I do
Wherever I go, I'll walk the last mile with you

I heard you say, "Dissolve in my arms
and run to fall in these meadows"
But you're just a memory
From a mocking old dream

But I cling to my dreams
I'm drawn to things that kill me
It's safer to pretend
But I'll deceive myself again

I your light I crumble, forgot what I'd been told
I never thought that I could feel so old
You're at the center of everything I do
Wherever I go, I'll walk the last mile with you

I've seen the whole world turn to gold
It's just like a fairground ride
Sometimes it turns out
That the tyrants are the pearls
You'll always know, someone loves you in this world

I want to burn like I burn
I want to burn like I burn

I wake up in the harsh light
Spilled my heart in a cold night
I've got too much time to kill
I wrote you're name upon my wall

I your light I crumble, forgot what I'd been told
I never thought that I could feel so old
You're at the center of everything I do
Wherever I go, I'll walk the last mile with you
