In Love For The Last Time

I had plans
They went south
When I found my heart
Putting words in my mouth

I thought that was a feeling
That I’d left behind
But now I’m in love for the last time

I was sure
Love was dead
Nothin’ but strangers
In and out of my bed

So many days lonely
And I was resigned
But now I’m in love for the last time

I know about young love that dies on the vine
But your love’s gonna hold me for the rest of my life
Even if you were no longer mine
I’d still be in love for the last time

I’m in love for the last time

People say
Time will heal
But I think we just forget
How we used to feel

But there’s no getting over
What’s burned in your mind
Now I’m in love for the last time

I know about young love that dies on the vine
But your love’s gonna hold me for the rest of my life
Even if you were no longer mine
I’d still be in love for the last time

I’m in love for the last time
