Week Seventeen: “Last Act”

Was a fool with my money
and a villain with your heart
I’ve gone so astray
from where I began
And all the joys of my life
have fallen apart
So here is the last act
of a desperate man

I can’t give you back
all the things that I’ve stolen
I can’t wrap back up
all the miles I ran
Got a heart like a wound
all bloody and swollen
So here is the last act
of a desperate man

Lonely, lonely am I
Counting the tears in my eye
Lonely and lost without you
with only the bourbon
to help me get through

You used the love when I’d play you
some Chopin and Haydn
It was the only thing that always
went according to plan
So farewell, you won’t hear
the rails I been riding
This song is the last act
of a desperate man

This song is the last act
of a desperate man
