The Last Time

The Last Time


If I had somehow known
That the last time
Would be the very last time
Would I have turned around
And given comfort
Would that have been such a crime

Everyone around me
Feels that itís their choice
To ignore my voice
Question my judgement
And each step I take
While my heart aches

Somehow I thought youíd come back again
And Iíd let you in
Reaching for heaven but dipping slowly into sin
Believing
That it wasnít too late
While trying but failing to
Turn love to hate

If I had somehow known
That Iíd need a heart
As hard as stone
To move mountains
All on my own
But I didnít know
I didnít know

Itís so easy for others to make the call
To risk it all
When all they can offer are words
But itís too late
Iíve already used them all
Over and over again
As I tumbled into free fall

Somehow I thought youíd come back again
And Iíd let you in
Reaching for heaven but dipping slowly into sin
Believing
That it wasnít too late
While trying but failing to
Turn love into hate

If I had somehow known
That the last time
Would be the very last time
Would I have turned around
Pretended I was blind
Spoke aloud what was on my mind
Would I have turned around
And touched your face
For the very last time
Would I?
