"The Last" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Does it hurt to fall in love so easy
Does it hurt to fall in love so fast
Does it hurt you to find out
Thirty-second hand

Is it such a big task
Such a big task
Are you too proud to ask
Remember last one was your last

It's too early to run to momma
It's too late to run like hell
I guess I would tell ya
'Cause I don't want to ask
That this one be your last

And this one child is killing you
This one's your last chance
To make this last one really the last
Oh are you too proud to ask
Is it such a big task
Remember last one was your last

The next one's always
Gonna last for always
The next one's always on me
Would it hurt to fall in love a little slower
I know it hurts at any speed

So you have another drink
And get down on your knees
You been swearing to God
Now maybe if you'd ask
That this one be your last
'Cause this one child is killing you

This one's your last chance
To make this last one really the last
Gonna last for always
It's gotta last for always

    General CommentAbout the last drink, and a last(ing) love. And the struggle of trying to maintain. A beautiful and vastly underrated 'Mats song!

    General CommentThe lyric is not "thirty second hand" it's "third or second hand"

    General CommentTwo great lyrics;

    Does it hurt to fall in love a little slower?
    I know it hurts at any speed.

    and

    You've been swearin' to God
    now maybe if you asked.

    Paul writes lyrics at such a high level but they seem almost tossed off. How did he not become huge?
