"The Last Song I Will Write" lyrics - JASON ISBELL

"The Last Song I Will Write"

Come run away with me
This ain't the world we signed up for
Echoes across the open sea of a place without any range war
This is the last song I will write
This is the last time I will fight for you

Momma lost her second love
At a time when she really needs it
He could not have been enough,
So small and still bumping the ceiling
This is the last dream I will have:
My lady, my love, and my mom and dad
Floating away to Spain

You who work up on your feet,
Your neck turns red from the sunshine
It's you who've seen my worst defeat
Crawling through crumbling coalmines
These are the words I will sing
'Cause this is the end of everything
I'm crawling away to the sea
