The Last Night Lyrics

You come to me with scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night
Feeling like this

I just came to say goodbye
Didn't want you to see me cry
I'm fine but I know it's a lie

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be

The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be

Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don't know you like I know you
They don't know you at all

I'm so sick of when they say
It's just a phase, you'll be okay, you're fine
But I know it's a lie

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be

The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be
The last night away from me

The night is so long when everything's wrong
If you give me your hand, I will help you hold on
Tonight, tonight

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be

The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be

I won't let you say goodbye
And I'll be your reason why
The last night away from me, away from me
away from me

its not about korey and its not about Jesus or God. he wrote it for a friend who came to him planning on committing suicide just like it says in the song. actually it might be about korey. who knows? but i do know it saved me. great song

I'm only 15 years old, and this song reminds me of myself. Because my parents always blame everything on me, and my boyfriend is the only one that really knows me the best out of everyone that I know.

I love this song so much. My parents think that I'm the cause of EVERYTHING and they always take their anger out on me. (that's where open wounds comes in to my life)I love this band more than any other band. BEST BAND EVER!!!

The part that says 'I won't let you say good-bye and I'll bey our reason why,' is SO TRUE! I've tried to kill-myself so many times.I've gone deep enough, but, I guess God didn't want me dead. I'm still here. Don't wanna be, but I am.

This song totally is like my life, but it's actually dedicated to Korey Cooper. She came to John with scars on her wrist when they were dating and he got a chance to tell her how special she is to God and to himself. It is the story of my life though. Love you Skillet.

I'm a cutter and I've attempted suicide about 7 times in the last year. The first time that I decided to kill myself, I heard this song. Cried the whole way through, and this song has saved my life numerous times. Skillet is my fave band.

@hopeless - don't hate him. There is no reason on waisting feelings on him, and you'll just feel better if you forgive him. I think this song is so amazing, because it tells us how much Jesus loves us
