The time has come to say goodbye,
The sun is setting in the sky,
The truth turned out to be a lie,
It's over, over
Hum yourself a lullaby,
This is the end,
But baby don't you cry,
To take away the melody,
And all that's left are memories
Of lovers, friends and enemies
But they're all faded
You may not remember me
I haven't got the strength to carry on
If this is the last song,
I ever sing,
Then I'm giving it everything
I'm giving it all
If this is the last song,
That I ever play,
Then I guess it's time to take
My curtain call
I'm dying to thank you all
I'm dying to thank you all
I'm dying to thank you all
To thank you all
Yeah
So here's to all the lonely hearts,
Cuz' mines been ripped and torn apart
I'm cold and now it's getting dark
But I'll be okay
Bury me with my guitar
And all the way to hell I'll play
if this is the last song,
I ever sing,
Then I'm giving it everything
I'm giving it all
If this is the last song,
That I ever play,
Then I guess it's time to take
My curtain call
I'm dying to thank you all
I'm dying to thank you all
I'm dying to thank you all
To thank you all
Yeah
One more song before I've got to go
I'm singing
From the very bottom of my soul
And hearing
Every single word and every note
I'm pleading
Let me hear you sing it out once more
With feeling
One more song before I've got to go,
I'm singing
From the very bottom of my soul
And hear me now
Every single word and every note
I'm pleading
Let me hear you sing it out once more
With feeling
If this is the last song
That I ever sing
Then I'm giving it everything
I'm giving it all
If this is the last song,
I'll ever play
Then I guess it's time to take
My curtain call
If this is the last song
That I ever sing
And I'm giving it everything
I'm giving it all
If this is the last song,
I'll ever play
Then I guess it's time to say
We thank you all

    When my friends and I first heard this song we were wondering if this meant McFLY would soon be moving on to pursue other things and it would in fact be their 'last song'. We're still wondering but we don't let it take away from the fact that its an incredibly beautiful song with a breathtaking melody and they sing it with so much emotion that if it is their last song its a brilliant one to go off on.

    Basically, this song is about if they have one last song to play before they die, then they're going to put everything into it and say goodbye to everyone.
    This song is probably the best they've ever done in my opinion. (:

    How powerful is the beginning of this song? It's amazing, the soft, sad tune they sing to it fits the beautiful lyrics so perfectly. 'The truth turned out to be a lie' That is so amazing, and it can fit so many situations. And I think that goes for this song as a whole, there's so many ways to take it. 'This is the end but baby don't you cry' there's something heartbreaking about that i think. Beautiful, haunting and heartbreaking.

    I love the way trhis song starts off soft and gentle and steadily gets to the chorus whcih si so much louder. It gives me the feeling that it's a really important message whcih needs the car and attention of the softer bit but if so important to them that they want to scream about it.
