"Last Beautiful Girl" as written by and Matt Michael Serletic....
This will all fall down like everything else that was
This too shall pass and all of the words we said
We can't take back

Now every fool in town would've left by now
I can't replace all the wasted days
The memory of your face - can't help thinkin'

Maybe if we ever coulda kept it all together
Where would we be
A thousand lost forevers
And the promises you never were giving me
Here's what I'm thinking

It won't be the first - heart that you break
It won't be the last - beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked - won't take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

Tell me one more time
How you're sorry about the way
This all went down - you needed to find your space

You needed to still be friends
Needed me to
Call you if I ever couldn't keep it all together you'd comfort me
Tell me but forever
And the promises I never should have believed in
Here's what I'm thinking

It won't be the first - heart that you break
It won't be the last - beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked - won't take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

It's over now - and I've gone without
Cuz you're everybody else's girl
It seems to me - you'll always be
Everyone else's girl
Everyone else's girl

This will all fall down
Like everything in the world
This too must end
And all the words we said
We can't take back

It won't be the first - heart that you break
It won't be the last - beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked - won't take you back
If you were the last...

It won't be the first - heart that you break
It won't be the last - beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked - won't take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

The last beautiful girl in the world
You are the last beautiful girl in the world
Beautiful girl

    General Commentman, its so nice to see that other people get this song. those last lines just make the whole song. when i listen to this song, i can just kind of imagine this guy sitting there, watching the girl he loved with some other guy or flirting with a whole bunch of guys, and he's just off to the side, and this is his little apostrophe (addressing someone who's not there) where he just yells and screams at her like "you're not all you think you are, i'll get over you and find someone even better." and he justs continues in the same way, angry as all hell at this girl who broke his heart. but then, at the very end, she looks at him, and for that one second he sees what he always knew was there, and realizes that he's still completely crazy about her.

    this song is just so...true...

    General CommentThis song was such a nice surprise in the Mad Season cd. The music, the lyrics, everything about it would made me cry back then. Just like theLavi, I just felt that it fitted so perfectly to my situation: being absolutely used by someone that says that he/she cares about you when it's just convenience...he/she is everyone else's...Still that person is SO beautiful in your eyes that even being aware of all that using she/he could make you give up again...

    "It seems to be you've always been everyone else's girl..." That can be so hurting, realizing that you weren't even something important in that person's life; but she/he changed yours around.

    General Commentmy ex-b/f played this song for me after i broke up w/ him.
    It starts out saying their relationship as ended; like everything else eventually ends, and they can't take back all the things they didn't mean to say. The guy is saying he's a fool for sticking around and no other fool would've. But he's thinking even if they were still together, she wouldn't be able to give him what he wants 100 percent. The girl broke his heart, it wasn't the first time and it won't be the last time she does it to a guy. And none of the guys she hurts will take her back if she was the last beautiful girl. He doesn't want to hear how she's sorry for all her mistakes and how she hurt him. She still wants to be friends and have him call her if he needs some1 to lean on. But everything has ended and he's going w/o her b/c he knows she will never be his.

    And ugh, that's how it was w/ us and now i really love him and this song makes me cry. honestyormystery , he IS telling her she's the last beautiful girl in the world. Those are flat out the lyrics of the last lines....

    General Commenti was seriously considering buying the cd partly cause of this. The lyrics may be a little heartbreaking but to me the feel is warm like a lazy summer Sunday

    General CommentCranberries- I had the same thing happen to me!! No joke...when I broke up with my boyfriend he told me to listen to that song. It made me cry. I think cuz it was so true. Nonetheless, this song is very awesome and now I have the album so that I can listen to it.

    General CommentWhy are the beautiful girls the most confused ones? Because guys are always chasing them, so they don't have to know what love is. Sooner or later they'll learn that some guys are not disposable, though, but by then the right one's probably gone...

    ...I love this song.

    (this album, and Recovering the Satelites, best post-relationship albums ever)
