lyrics

THIS IS THE LAST SONG I SING ABOUT YOU,
THIS IS THE LAST TIME I SAY YOUR NAME,
THESE ARE THE LAST CHORDS ON THE PIANO,
THE LAST NOTE IN YOUR SONG.

ONLY YOU CAN ANSWER,
IF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE'S WRONG,
ONLY YOU CAN STAND UP,
AND KNOW WHERE YOU BELONG.

I WILL WALK MY OWN,
AND FIND THE THINGS THAT MEAN,
EVERYTHING I STAND FOR,
AND EVERYTHING I DREAM.

ONLY THEN WILL CHANGE,
BLOW IT'S WAY RIGHT THROUGH,
AND TAKE ME TO THE MOUNTAINS,
WHERE THE SUN WILL BURN MY SKIN.

NOT KNOWING ALL THE ANSWERS,
SHOUTED DEEP WITHIN,
NOT KNOWING ANY QUESTIONS,
OR WHERE I SHOULD BEGIN.

CHORUS

THIS IS THE LAST TIME I WRITE ABOUT THIS,
THIS IS THE LAST TIME I SAY YOUR NAME,
THESE ARE THE LAST WORDS ON THE PAPER,
YOU'RE NOT THE SAME

THIS IS THE LAST SONG I SING ABOUT YOU,
THIS IS THE LAST TIME I SAY YOUR NAME,
THESE ARE THE LAST CHORDS ON THE PIANO,
THE LAST NOTE IN YOUR SONG.

I HELD MY HANDS OUT TO YOU,
I FACED INTO THE WIND,
I THREW THEM TO THE DOGS,
AND I LAY THERE AS THEIR PREY.

AND I THINK OF ALL THE PEOPLE,
THAT I PUSHED OUT OF MY WAY,
AS THEY NOW STAND ABOVE ME,
LAUGHING AS I SAY,

CHORUS

I CALL OUT FOR THEIR HELP NOW,
I KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE,
THE DESERT WITHOUT THE WATER,
IN THE ICE WITHOUT THE SUN,

THOUGH I CAN'T EXPLORE,
ALL THAT I'VE BECOME,
I NEED SOME LIGHT TO LIGHT MY DARKNESS,
SOME LIGHT TO FIND THE SUN.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'LL LIVE WITHOUT YOU,
GUIDING MY EVERY MOVE,
THE FIRST TIME I'LLL WALK WITHOUT YOU,
I'VE NO STEPS LEFT TO PROVE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'LL HAVE ONLY,
MYSELF TO ANSWER TO,
SOMETIMES YOU FEEL DISCHORDS,
WHEN YOU NEED THE HARMONY.
