Like Every Song's Our Last


Tonight was just another night of monotonous fear
Broken only by feeble thoughts of empty reassurance
It came like a bittersweet blow to your dull reality
A vision to scare the idleness from your hands

Did you leave behind a legacy?
Did you leave behind a single thing
Of real value
To those around you?
Well, did you love hard enough
When you were going to live forever?
Are you wasting time being afraid of letting go?
Of causing pain?
Are you wasting time being afraid of being afraid?

The present world drifts before my eyes like a fading memory
I feel like I’m grasping desperately for something
That disappeared before I had a chance to need it
And then—the vision to change my life on its last night

Well, what if you knew it to be true?
Now tonight is not just another night,
But your last one here on earth
And by tomorrow, you’ll be gone
Along with all your good intentions
And urgent procrastinations

Well, what if you knew it to be true?
Would you finally find your courage
And say what needed to be said?
In a lifetime,
Can you say everything you want to say?
Are you going to die
Knowing you never apologized?

What will your last words be?
And who will be the one to hear them?
What will be the mark you leave?
And will it mean a single fucking thing?

Tonight’s my final night
And I’m playing every song like it’s my last
Tonight’s my final night
And I’m singing every song like it’s my last
