"One Last Time" as written by and Jaymes Young....
I'm fading
Much too fast, my love
I'm waiting
For it to pass, my love

Could I feel your skin on mine
Before I have to say goodbye
Could I breathe, please, one last time
You in my lungs before I curl up
And die
All my world is losin' light

I'm leaving
This cold world of mine
No pleading
Is gonna turn back time

Could I feel your skin on mine
Before I have to say goodbye
Could I breathe, please, one last time
You in my lungs before I curl up
And die
All my world is losin' light

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is not that it appears to be, at least the setting is not what you think. Its about a girl that he loves that is about to part ways with him.
    He wont be able to see her again so hes asking:

    Could I feel your skin on mine,
    Before I have to say goodbye
    Could I breathe, please, one last time,
    You in my lungs
    Before I curl up
    And die

    This part means that he wants her for one last time because he doesnt know if he will see her again.

    I'm leaving
    This cold world of mine
    No pleading
    Is gonna turn back time

    This part illustrates him leaving the world of him being depressed because he knows how he will feel once she leaves. He knows no amount of begging or pleading will be enough to replay the time he had with her which was great, but now he thinks of it as a cold world. The cold world means a world of depression and sorrow because of his longing for her presence.

    All my world is losin' light

    He doesn't know what he will do without her so he thinks there is no point in living on, since his light (the girl) is not with him.

    This song is a sad song where a person knows he must leave or go separate ways with a girl that he loves so he wants to make love with her for one last time before he thinks that he will curl up and die.
