one last love song lyrics – beautiful south

once had a friend who i loved from my heart
but i went on and left her for i’d made a start
now i’m moaning the blues like the rest of the charts
take me back

so i’ll cry with a limp just get by on a limp
till these blue eyes of mine they are closed
so here’s to an old fashioned peck on the cheek
and farewell my sweet northern rose

give me one last love song to bring you back, bring you back
give me one last video just dressed in black, dressed in black
give him a chorus and that bit at the end
where he wails on and on ’bout the loss of a friend
let him scream loudly well this love could mend
let it die, let it die

those bl**dy great ballads we hated at first
well i bought them all, now i’m writing worse
save us from baldness and saving the earth
take me back

and i’ll smile with a limp and i’ll love with a limp
till the clouds disappear from above
and as the storm moves away all i can say
is there’s a towel on the door for your love

give me one last love song to bring you back, bring you back
give me one last video just dressed in black, dressed in black
give him a chorus and that bit at the end
where he wails on and on ’bout the loss of a friend
let him scream loudly well this love could mend
let it die, let it die, let it die

give me one last love song to bring you back, bring you back
give me one last video just dressed in black, dressed in black
give him a chorus and that bit at the end
where he wails on and on ’bout the loss of a friend
let him scream loudly well this love could mend
let it die, let it die, let it die
