ONE LAST THING

BEFORE YOU GO
ONE LAST PIECE, OF MY SOUL
WOULD IT MATTER IF I HELD YOU
AND TOLD YOU THAT IT WAS ALRIGHT,
ONE LAST TIME

I WANTED TO BE YOUR FIRST LOVE
I WOULD HAVE SETTLED FOR YOUR
LAST ROMANCE.
BUT AS YOU WALK INTO HIS ARMS
WILL WE EVER HAVE OUR LAST DANCE?

FOREVER ENDS WITHIN THIS MINUTE
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO END IT LIKE THIS?

WHEN THERE WAS SO MUCH LEFT TO SAY
YOU WERE SOFT-SPOKEN
IN THE HARDEST WAY
ENDLESS WAITING FOR THOSE THINGS,
YOU COULD NEVER SAY
YOU ALWAYS KNEW,
HOW TO BREAK MY DAY

FOREVER ENDS FROM THIS MINUTE
I DON'T WANT THIS TO END TONIGHT
IT'S NOT ALRIGHT
INFINITELY WAS WRITTEN
TRYING NOT TO FOLD FOR YOU
THIS ONE LAST TIME
BEFORE YOU GO TO HIM

WHOEVER SAID TO HAVE LOVED AND LOST
IS BETTER THAN NEVER LOVING
NEVER FELT LIKE THIS!

THE TIMES OF OUR LIVES WERE NOT SPENT WELL
AND SO I FELL,
HARDER THAN EVER!

AND I'LL KEEP REMINDING MYSELF TO REGRET.

    General CommentI love this song, especially the line "WHOEVER SAID TO HAVE LOVED AND LOST IS BETTER THAN NEVER LOVING NEVER FELT LIKE THIS!" Because in the begining of a breakup that is exactly how it feels. That line perfectly captures the heartache. It expresses how when we lose them, we feel like we are loosing EVERYTHING. I'm guessing that this song is about his lover leaving him for another guy "BUT AS YOU WALK INTO HIS ARMS..." It's sad stuff but makes one beautiful song.

    General CommentMy favorite line is 'forever ends within this minute' it just seems so true. That one thing can end what took a life time to make. Indeed it is an amazing song.

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite JBH song ever. i saw them play this live, and even with the PA throuble they had, he still managed to yell out the words over the music, and had tears in his eyes. it was probably the most emotional song i've seen played. the lyrics are so clear, and yet really deep. i can relate to this, wanting and feeling so much more than the other person, and watching it all fall apart when you just want to keep going.

    General Commenti love this song.. totally how i feel right now

    the lines, "forever ends within this minute, why did you choose to end it like this?" are the best in this song.. why does anyone do anything to hurt someone they love

    General Comment"I wanted to be your first love
    I would have settled in for your last romance
    But as you walk into his arms
    Will we ever have our last dance?"

    This part makes me shiver...what a truly amazing band.
