"Last Waltz" as written by Lauri Johannes Yloenen, Pauli Esko Antero Rantasalmi, Eero Aleksi Heinonen, Aki-markus Hakala and Michael Blair....
Make me blind
Cover my eyes
You can do what you want
I'm paralyzed by the perfect mood
When we're dancing with blindfolds on
You make it easy to love you and hate you
I can't explain it, I feel insecure
Say it simple: "You die just to live again."
You say we're waiting for the last waltz

Another you and me
Another revolutionary heavenly romance
Waiting for the last waltz
And so it seems
We won't find the solution
Confusion leads the dance
We're waiting for the last waltz

Praise the wine
So divine
And it stings like a rose
Allow the night to flow inside
Open the window and let the wind blow
Highlight of the night is the unhappy ending
You keep refusing to answer my calls
Drop the bending and stop the pretending
You say get ready for the last waltz

Another you and me
Another revolutionary heavenly romance
Waiting for the last waltz
And so it seems
We won't find the solution
Confusion leads the dance
We're waiting for the last waltz

I believe that no one in this world has the answers for me
But still I hope that someone has heard

Oh you and me
Another revolutionary heavenly romance
Waiting for the last waltz
And so it seems
We won't find the solution
Confusion leads the dance
We're waiting for the last waltz

    General Commenti have a thing for the melody of this sing...it has this depressing tone. ANYWAY...

    i think this song talks about a relationship reaching its end on the girl's side. this relationship is metaphorically portrayed as a waltz. At a dance, the last waltz is the VERY VERY LAST dance at the END of the dance, the closing for the evening. i suppose that in her point of view, she realizes that this relationship that was once beautiful (all the other romance that they had before this last waltz) is coming to a close on her part. she doesn't like him anymore and he's starting to feel it. his feeling haven't faded yet, and he 's getting insecure about her affections for him. She's trying to make the end something nice, like the last waltz, but it is all in all, still The End of their relationship.

    General CommentI was just listening to this song and something sprung out at me. I keep thinking about that scene in the movie Inception where Mal jumps, the insistence that this isn't really real.

    I think the key to this song may the lines:

    "You say: 'It's simple: we die just to live again'
    You say: 'We're waiting for the last waltz' "

    If we look at those lines and place them in the broader context of the song, it could suggest something like the person this song is sung to (the "you") believes that we keep on living lives over and over again, waiting for the final life (last waltz) that will finally be... good enough? The end of the revolutions?

    Or, alternatively, the "you" in the song believes that love is like a phoenixes life cycle, "we die just to live again", that relationships, too, must die and then be revived to die again and so on, so she "kills" the relationship ("highlight of the night is the unhappy ending...") until it can be... perfect? something... which would be the "last waltz", the last time they'd have to go through the relationship.

    :BTW, I think the chorus should be:

    "And so it seems we won't find *resolution*
    Confusion leads the dance..."
