The Last Good Day Of The Year

Album: Global Warming (1999)
  • Don't tell me
    That you get sick of living
    When the summer's so forgiving, although we have stolen
    All of the things that we thought we had owned then
    Have disappeared

    All these things in flavour
    Won't do you no favours
    When the summer's light is fragrant with scents of returning
    You relent, you resent, now you're burning
    For nothing to change

    There's something there
    Among the fallen fruit and flowers, won't rest
    Only minutes, only hours unless
    Now the morning breaks in showers, I guess
    We'll remember this all of our lives
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year

    All the leaves are turning
    Autumn's fingers burnished
    Furnished here in hope and in faith in the meantime
    Kinda working my way through a dream I
    Was having alone
    Was having alone

    There's something there
    Among the fallen fruit and flowers, won't rest
    Only minutes, only hours unless
    Now the morning breaks in showers, I'm left
    With the north wind breathing down my neck
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year

    There's something there
    Among the fallen fruit and flowers, won't rest
    Only minutes, only hours unless
    Now the morning breaks in showers, I guess
    We'll remember this all of our lives
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year
    On the last good day of the year
