The Lasts

What's it like in summer
When the kids remember
What it's like to be carefree
With nothing hanging over me
The last day of the summer
The sun would shine, but dimmer
Wish I knew the day before
I would have caught a little more

We never know the last time
That might be the one chance that I had
To make you smile
Before you stepped into the wild

Before I read your story
I’d pick you up and we'd go say goodnight to everything
Be thankful for the joy they bring
Then one night you’re too old
Moving on as we all should
Wish I knew the night before
I would've held a little more

And when the rain does fall
Why not say fuck it all
And go outside
Feel the rain on skin
Let the moment in
And soak up life
Right before your eyes
Do you see the signs?
Now off to sleep

The first time I saw it
It pulled me in with wonder
All the people on the sleeve
Crying, "wont you look at me"
The needle danced it's magic
Injecting me with life blood
Took me to very core
Found what I was waiting for
