The Last One Acoustic by Laura Gibson Guitar (C)hords

(C) (Am)
Arms once bent towards me,
F (C) G
now caught in hesitation
(C) (Am)
Legs once dancing,
F (C) G
now wandering in place
(Am) Bm (C) (Am) G
Words once promising,
(C) (Am) Em
to do, to have, to hold
(Am) Bm (C) (Am) G
What’s worth saving,
(C) (Am) Em
just to watch each other drown
G
(Am) I wrong?

(C)
Oh here we are, here we are, here we are, dear
(Am)
Are we near to the end, saving our breath?
F
Our histories bound, cold to our chest
(C) G
Did I fail you? Did I fail love?
(C)
Here I am stealing the heat from your back
(Am)
Still tracing the wall where your shadow was cast
F
With every voice whispering to us,
(C) G
“It’s not lost! It’s not lost!”

(C) (Am)
I tried to love you in disguise
F (C) G
I built an altar to your silence
(C) (Am)
I meant to undraw every line
F (C) G
Wore your loneliness so fondly
(Am) Bm (C) (Am) G
(C)ould you keep the restless still?
(C) (Am) Em
The future stuck inside your throat
(Am) Bm (C) (Am) G
What’s worth letting go?
(C) F (Am) Em G
I can’t tell selfishness from love anymore

(C)
Oh here we are, here we are, here we are, dear
(Am)
Are we near to the end, straining to hold
(C) F (C)
This ghost of a thing, alien being that was once love?
G
Is it still love?
(C)
And here I am stealing the cloth from your back
(Am)
Still pulling out every thread for a song
F
And maybe I’ll stay, or maybe I’ll hear
(C) G
The tiniest voice whispering to me
(C) (Am) F

“Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!”
