LYRIC

My Last Love Song

She was hitching a ride and I thought she’d be grateful if I lent her a hand
So I gave her a ride till I ran out of gas at a Taco Bell stand
I told her I loved her – I knew it was sudden
but, hell, these things happen so fast
She blew me a kiss then she picked up a lift
with some dude with a full tank of gas

And that was my last love song
That didn’t last too long
One day it’s love sky high
The next it’s goodbye
Just let the last chord ring
There on that last high string
That was the last love song
That I’m gonna try

She was sipping a gin-sling, and humming some dumb thing
about love going wrong
About crimes unforgiven and life not worth living – I was humming along
She told me a story of lost love and glory and some kind of loser named Fred
She left me a note on a wet cocktail napkin
and here’s what this poor sucker read

And that was my last love song
That didn’t last too long
One day it’s love sky high
The next it’s goodbye
Just let the last chord ring
There on that last high string
That was the last love song
That I’m gonna try

Oh her name it was Agnes and the whole sixth grade loved her
but me most of all
And the life that I planned for us both in Valpares and such ports of call.
We’d probably write plays and poetry, hang out with royalty
she’d be my wife
One day after school I explained to her mum all my plans for the rest of our life

And that was my last love song
That didn’t last too long
One day it’s love sky high
The next it’s goodbye
Just let the last chord ring
There on that last high string
That was the last love song
That I’m gonna try
