Elle King – Last Damn Night lyrics

I got one hand on the bottle, and one foot in the grave
It's been too long since I stepped, but I I I ain't got time to waste
Three long days, boy you'd better break
When that light shines on you
Gonna want to stay forever and a day, but it's the night I belong to

Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running out
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell

Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night,
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

Well I'm five seconds closer to living six feet deep,
There's seven steps to heaven, but that stairway is just to skip
Oh, my my everybody dies, but you know that I don't want to
You get eight long lives, boy you gonna cry when the knife breaks your arm
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running out

Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell
Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night,
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

But the clock keeps ticking,
You pretend that you're ready to go
Well it's ticking down, and slow

I know I'll ever die, is gon' hold me
'Cause I'm running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell

Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night,
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

    The theme of this song is to never let anyone, even a boy, ruin your life. It's also to live your life to the fullest. I choose these two themes because throughout the entire song, Elle states "I'm going to live my life, like it my last damn night," I think that what she means is that she wont let anyone get in her way and that she's a strong person. The first theme contributes to the song lyrics because throughout the entire song she keeps talking about a by and how his time is ticking away. I think what she means by that is that she is telling the boy off by saying it through a song. If you really look into the song, there could be a whole lot more themes to it, but I picked the ones that seem the most important and the ones that contribute a lot to the song lyrics.
