Track Name: The Last Song in the World
This song I'm working on is gonna be huge
The last song in the world
Hipper than hiphop and bluer than blues
The last song in the world

The hearts of the many and the souls of a few
Will be touched by the music all the way through
Between you and me, before the debut
The last song in the world
Is gonna be about you

It'll be a whole album, take an hour to load
The last song in the world
They'll sing in the shower, at work, on the road
The last song in the world

No one will need to write songs anymore
It'll be everything we were writing them for
Between you and me, the rumors are true
The last song in the world
Is gonna be about you

Don't try to fight it, avoid it, deny it
I'll detail the way it went down
Your ears will burning, cuz you can be certain
They'll be whispering all over town

It might make you start to feel a little alone
The last song in the world
It might make you wonder if you can come home
The last song in the world

You'll show up and tell me you're sorry for leaving
Before I shut the door, I'll tell you we're even
Between you and me, it'll really be through
The last song in the world
Is gonna be about you
Track Name: That One Thing
They tell me you're a liar
A temporary fling
They wonder how I don't see
You only want one thing

And honey, I want more
Oh yes that's true
But if that thing's
All I can get from you
Well baby That One Thing
Sure is something
And it'll have to do

They say the way to keep you
Is hang the carrot from the string
Give all I have to give you
But hold on to That One Thing

I try to be a good girl
Yes that's true
But if that thing's
All I can get from you
Well baby That One Thing
Sure is something
And it'll have to do

I won't try to lock you down
That's just a waste of time
But we've landed on an understanding
Babe, where do I sign?
Cuz I don't need a place to fall
Just shivers up my spine

I don't need your future
I'm not asking for a ring
Just come home to my place
And bring me That One Thing

And honey, I'm in love
Oh yes that's true
But if that thing's
All I can get from you
Well baby That One Thing
Sure is something
So it'll have to do

See there is no me and you
So what we've got'll have to do now
Track Name: The Band Begins to Play
When they call out for one last song
The moment we've dreading all night long
We don't speak, for there's nothing left to say
And the band begins to play

Bittersweet, that we have this final chance
To delay the end of our romance
Now you sweep me gently through the fray
And the band begins to play

Dada....

Here's your heat, and your hand upon my hip
Your arm in every turn in every dip
I commit these to my memory as we sway
And the band begins to play

Dada...

So for now, let us bury all our sins
And the pieces of what we might have been
Lord have mercy, let tomorrow fade away
And the band begins to play
And the band begins to play
And the band begins to play
Track Name: BONUS: Please Come Home
I can't cry now, but I'll cry later
It doesn't hurt now, but it will soon
Tonight I'm alright with the covers pulled tight
But tomorrow I'll be howling at the moon

I don't believe it now, but wait 'til morning
When I see you reading at our old cafe
I'll pass right by, I won't say
But I hope you see me as I walk away

Oh please come home to me

I walk around all day hoping to see you
Or to have your number show up on my phone
And I don't let you see what you have done to me
But I fall apart at night, in bed, alone

I just can't ignore how much I can't ignore you
They tell me 'wait it out', but I'm just waiting for you

I don't think I'll be able to move on, dear
But I'll be prepared the next time that we meet
I'll pretend it's no big deal, and I'll wear my highest heels
Now that's if I can get back on my feet

Oh please come home to me
