Yesterday you came to lift me up As light as straw and brittle as a bird Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall Just one more whisper of a voice unheard
Tomorrow leave the windows open As fear grows please hold me in your arms Won't you help me if you can to shake this anger I need your gentle hands to keep me calm
`Cause I never thought I'd lose I only thought I'd win I never dreamed I'd feel This fire beneath my skin
I can't believe you love me I never thought you'd come I guess I misjudged love Between a father and his son
Things we never said come together The hidden truth no longer haunting me Tonight we touched on the things that were never spoken That kind of understanding sets me free

Robert Lilley from SacramentoAs poignant today as when first heard.
Sarah Remmel from Twinsburg, OhioOne of my all-time, favorite songs, by Sir Elton John, is The Last Song, & ever, since the, very first-time, I heard it, I was totally, addicted to it, & i have the 1992 CD. Sir Elton John is the greatest. I am also a huge Queen fan, & I was ten, years old, when Freddie Mercury, died from AIDS, on my dad's birthday, November 24, of 1991. I love you, Sir Elton John.
Doug from Nova Scotia@Daniel from Sydney. It ends abruptly mirroring the abrupt ending of so many AIDS patients that died way before their time.
Daniel from Sydney, AustraliaThis song would be even better if it were longer. It ends quite abruptly. If he added a piano solo after singing the chorus for the second time and then sung the chorus again to end the song it would be incredible.
Linda from Midland, TxMy priest used this song to close a sermon about the prodigal son--it was the perfect way. I understand Elton John's feelings about organized religion--but he should realize that most of us don't feel qualified to judge our fellow man-that true religion is about acceptance and love of God (the Father) for each of his children--as Elton so powerfully expressed in his song.
Kent from Toronto, CanadaThis song might also be posted in the list of songs significant to the gay community, considering its subject matter.
Linda from Italy, CtElton is so full of emotions that it is almost impossible not to love him
Morgan from Urbana, OhThis is the most powerful song I've ever heard.
Adrian from London, EnglandThis song had the power to make me cry. Not many songs can do that to me.
