"Last Place You Look" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
The grass is always greener as I'm sure that you've found
If I find my way back on the last leg of this trip
I'm betting I'm finding you there
As long as it's constantly changing

As long as it's constantly sound
If there's no sense of impending danger
There's no sense in hanging around for the winter
If I'm not gonna be in your arms around me

What have I got if you're there?
We'll behome in December
The leaves don't fall from the trees as long
As you remember you are always with me

It's not my place to find it
Not something that I get to choose
Don't be scared 'cause you're not something I'm willing to lose
I'll bet you find it in the last place you look

    General Commentthis is one of the many guk songs that means a lot to me. i relate it a lot to my life right now. i take the song as saying something about still being in love with a former girlfriend/boyfriend but they wont give you the time of day right now. but you know deep down in your heart... that they'll come back to you. and that everything will be ok. it just might take some time... but this person will come to you.. and find love in the last place they look (you). you've just got to wait it out... and wait for them to choose... because its not up to you.

    General Commentto me this song doesnt sing about a lost lover, but a lost friend. thats the beauty about music.. it has so many meanings depending on you alone. 'the grass is always greener' someone once quoted this song to me.. and its all too true that she is someone that im not willing to lose.. oh the passion buring.

    General Commentthe first couple lines suggest that the person who it addressed to has had their own life experiences and realized that everything that is not yours seems better than what you have. He goes on to say that he's hoping that that person is at the end of his "trip" which could be taken as his wife at the end of the road. He just wants to express that he has to discover other things now, but he loves the person and will be back to see if it works out, if it's meant to be.
