Last Chance

I held your hand as you cried
As you smiled and told me it’s alright
The tears were streaming down your face
And I looked away

I never thought too much about your love
Or if it was real to me at all
But that one day you still caught me surprise
When you held me close and looked into my eyes
And you said

This is your last chance to tell me not to leave
Your last chance to be in this for me
I love you with my whole heart
Just like I have from the start
But your love is so empty to me
So maybe now you can set me free
I’m giving you this one last shot
So give it to me, all you got
I’ll walk away, but don’t back down
Say the words
And make me turn around

You let me go and turned away
But I didn’t know how to make you stay
The words you wanted, I didn’t know
So I cried when you walked toward the door
But I let you go on through

You held my hand as I cried
It was too much for me tonight
The tears streaming down my face
But you looked away

I’d been looking for another love
Since the last, I’d been so grown up
I was ready to move on
But this wasn’t what I was looking for at all
So I turned to you and said

This is your last chance to tell me not to leave
Your last chance to be in this for me
I love you with my whole heart
Just like I have from the start
But your love is so empty to me
So maybe now you can set me free
I’m giving you this one last shot
So give it to me, all you got
I’ll walk away, but don’t back down
Say the words
And make me turn around

And you watched me leave
Without saying two more words to me

I realized what you meant from the start
I realized just how I broke your heart
If I could go right back to the day
I know what I would change

When you said

This is your last chance to tell me not to leave
Your last chance to be in this for me
I love you with my whole heart
Just like I have from the start
But your love is so empty to me
So maybe now you can set me free
I’m giving you this one last shot
So give it to me, all you got
I’ll walk away, but don’t back down
Say the words
And make me turn around

And I’d grab you and I’d cry out
That I love you like you loved me from the start
You have my whole heart
Please don’t walk away
I need you here to stay


And you’d turn around…
