Hey guys, first time ever posting something here. I've finally figured out a way to round off the album I'm making atm, which is called Tomorrow, and these are the lyrics for "Last Song", which is literally the last song.

I think I broke quite a few grammar rules when trying to fit in rhymes (I almost never write in rhymes or a set rhyming scheme), so don't hesitate to point them out, or if anything sounds screwy.

I imagine this starting out with acoustic guitar, piano and cello, but to build up to a fullblown rock song in the usual style of my band. I have a bunch of bits and pieces written already, and there's just an endless flow of ideas that just fit together really well, so it's probably gonna be a really long song as well (not that any of my other songs aren't long <.< )
The song's about a breakup, of course, but it's not supposed to be sad or angry, just melancholic.

EDIT: now with recording! The quality isn't very good and I only used one set of lyrics, but this way you can get the general feel of the song.
Read the lyrics first, then listen to this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3782733/last%20song_snippet-02.mp3

And, in true S&L forum style, centered, italicised and with a prettier font.


hey there, my friend
so we've both come here, again
the last days of our days
the return of the end

Alot is not the word
For how much I am hurt
you looked at me, and looked away
without a single word

I know I'm not the best
Didn't pass the test
But I thought you would, I thought you could
Try to do your

Best times were with you
And worse times I never had
Than when I loved you

It's over now I'm sure
I won't let myself believe
it'll be better in the future
This is the last song you'll receive

I've given you all I could
I thought that you trusted me
There's nothing more for me to do
This is the last song you'll receive

If you ever hear this song
I'm sure you'll say that it's too long
I apologise, hope you'll sympathise
It's so hard to just move on

I thought you were the same
I smiled everytime I heard your name
Corny, I know, I'm just trying to show
I loved you and I thought you felt the same

It's over now I'm sure
I won't let myself believe
it'll be better in the future
This is the last song you'll receive

I've given you all I could
I thought that you trusted me
There's nothing more for me to do
This is the last song you'll receive

We'll try again,
Tomorrow.
