"The Last Song" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
This may be the last thing that I write for long
Can you hear me smiling when I sing this song, for you and only you

As I leave will you be someone to say good-bye
As I leave will you be someone to wipe your eye
My foot is out the door, and you can't stop me now

You wanted the best, it wasn't me, will you give it back
Now I'll take the lead, when there's no more room to make it grow
I'll see you again, you'll pretend you're naive, is this what you want
Is this what you need, how you end up let me know.

As I go, remember all the simple things you know,
My mind is just a crutch and I still hope, that you will miss me when
I'm gone
This is the last song

The hearts start breaking as the year is gone
The dream's beginning and the time rolls on
It seems so surreal, now I sing it.
Somehow I knew that I would be this way,
Somehow I knew that I would slowly fade.
Now I'm gone, just try and stop me now.

And will you need me now, you'll find a way somehow
You want it too, I want it too.

    General CommentIt's about a girl not really caring about you anymore, and that you love her so much and hope that one day she'll return when she realizes how much you meant to her...

    General CommentI think it's about a girl that he cares about ... but she doesn't want him because she wants "the best" and doesn't think it's him. And he's going to leave because he knows she doesn't want him and he still wonders if she'll miss him at all. This is my favorite song by them ... I think it has a great beat and good lyrics.

    General CommentThis should be the right version. I'm not exactly sure of every line. Mostly if he says "lead" or "leave". But I think it's lead...

    Anyway, this is an AMAZING song and I love these guys. Can't wait for their full CD.

    General CommentWas this song written for me? Sheesh...to me it seems like the song is written about someone that doesn't feel appreciated in their relationship, so they finally get the courage & confidence to leave. Even though they feel empowered, they can't help but hope that their significant other will miss them & cry after they're gone. Perhaps the person wishes for their significant other to have some regrets about the way they treated them & want them back in the future; for them to realize the error of their ways....Or maybe I'm just applying my own situation to the song a tad bit too literally. lol Anywho, that's just my two cents...you can take it or leave it. ~*Paige*~
