One Last Time is a story which carries over from Your Achin' Heart, which can be found on Dark Gives Way. One Last Time is a one sided conversation spoken by the female protagonist, and gives insight into the thoughts and feelings we carry after a break up.


One Last Time

She said
I’m sorry you’re hurting darling
But I aint sorry you’re hurting instead of me
Cos it feels like every time something goes wrong
You’re there to pin the blame on me
Well I know we’ve had some good times
I know we’ve had our share of fun
But lately I can’t remember what it was
That kept me hanging on

I know you’re tired of the suburbs
You’re tired of staying between the lines
You want to dance in the arms of a stranger
Stay out and watch that sweet sunrise
Well don’t you think I can stand a little joy too?
Don’t you think I want a thrill of my own?
I want to find me a sympathetic man
Who doesn’t know a damn thing about what I’ve done wrong

So you’re gonna hit the road for a while
Cruise your way into the heartbreak
Let those turning wheels wind your weeping away
Let the miles mark the distance between us
As for me, well I guess I’ll stick it out
Like I’ve always done before
You know this loneliness
It aint a stranger
It’s like an old friend out my door

They’re dancing waltzes down on Broadway tonight
And all the lovers spread their wings like butterflies
We could walk like shadows underneath streetlights
And you could tell me I’m beautiful
You could tell me I’m beautiful
Just one last time

She said
I’m sorry you’re hurting darling
But you know, it’s either me or you
And aint it just like a man to feel the loss
After his woman’s already pushed on through
