"Last Request" as written by and Barry Stock Adam Gontier....
She just walked away
Why didn't she tell me?
And where do I go tonight?
This isn't happening to me
This can't be happening to me
She didn't say a word
Just walked away

You were the first to say
That we were not okay
You were the first to lie
When we were not alright
This was my first love
She was the first to go
And when she left me for you
I was the last to know

Why didn't she tell me
Where to go tonight?
She didn't say a word
She just walked away

You were the first to say
That we were not okay
You were the first to lie
When we were not alright
This was my first love
She was the first to go
And when she left me for you
I was the last to know

I'll be the first to say
That now I'm okay
And for the first time
I've opened up my eyes
This was my worst love
You'll be the first to go
And when she leaves you for dead
You'll be the last to know

I'll be the first to say
That now I'm okay
And for the first time
I've opened up my eyes
This was my worst love
You'll be the first to go
And when she leaves you for dead
You'll be the last to know

    General CommentThis is an AMAZING song. To be honest, I think it's probably one of their best and they should remake it in their next album. If you don't have the song and you can't find it using Google PM me, I can probably send you all five of their demos.

    General CommentThis song is about how the guy has noticed that the girl has changed over the coarse of the years theyve neen with or have known eachother. The chorus is pretty much saying that shes alone now "you see your self in the puddles left from the rain" and all they can remember is the wrongs thaat shes done. "but all we remember is your stain." and then it goes on telling her to live her life in her own way where the only one that matters is herself.The part about playing a role means that she picked her role in the play we call life, but she thought she was playing a part where she was number 1 but it was actually a play where the main character falls to a tragadey

    General CommentIs this a newer or older song, because Jeromy sounds SOOO much different in this song. So much that I had to double check and make sure it was ADTR!
    become a bett
    But anyway, I think the song is about a girl who did something bad when she was young, and as she got older, she tried to redirect herself and become a better person, but she kept getting off track. Everyone put her down because of her past and she had a really hard time improving herself.

    On the other hand, it could be the opposite. Maybe she was a really good person when she was young, but changed into a bad person as she got older.

    Or maybe, she is trying to find her career choice, but she wants to do something that everyone disproves of. Then, she finally picks something that she thinks will make everyone happy, but it ends up being even worse and her life ends in tragedy.
