lyrics

I spent all this time memorizing your face,
the wrinkles and lines only I could retrace,
the contours and imprints that meant only you,
I tried to remember, retain the whole truth,
but life it gets messy, unruly, unkind,
and it didn't make much difference,
when I was the last man alive,

Things they weren't easy, but I can't complain,
I could be happy between all the pain,
and looking back now, the whole thing in review,
I'd always be grinning, when I thought of you,
but life it gets messy, unruly, unkind,
and I didn't smile all that much,
when I was the last man alive,

I saved all my money, I read lots of books,
three meals a day, and perfected my look,
I did twenty push-ups, I ran twenty miles,
I tried to be perfect, make it all worthwhile,
but life it gets messy, unruly, unkind,
and I felt like I'd wasted all my time,
when I was the last man alive,

Even now I don't know if I did it all right,
loving you here with all of my might,
thinking some day I'd have you, further down the line,
when it wouldn't just be dreams, when you were all mine,
but life it gets messy, unruly, unkind,
I wish things worked out like they did in my mind,
I wish I'd acted, while I still had the time,
but my wishes weighed the same,
as when I was the last man alive.
