The Real Tuesday Weld – Last Words lyrics

Over Elkin Avenue
The helium balloon, disappears into the sky
You give some money to a junkie
Watch as the sunny day drifts by
Can't tell you why
You said you loved me
And I kind of believe that
But these days who knows what it means
So we sat by the laundry matt with magazines and cigarettes
Talked about a million other things
These are the last words
I'll say to you
These are the last words
I'll say to you
I never saw the world the way the city looks me to today
I never thought the end would come this way
These are the last words
I'll say to you
Last night I dreamt that somebody had died
And it was one of us
I did the biggest thing that I could
But I was not enough
These are the last words
I will say to you

    I think it means failed love. Like one person is falling out of it and the other person (the singer) is realizing it. "Watch as the sunny sky drifts away/ can't tell you why" means that the person is noticing their love is fading away and he isn't sure why, he thinks this in an intuitive way. He isn't sure what "I love you" means from them anymore because they ARE drifting away. Does it mean "I like you" or "I want to like you" or "I'm trying to like you", but it most definitely does not mean what it's supposed to mean - it doesn't mean "I love you" anymore. With "these are the last words I'll say to you", I take that as those are the last words that they'll be able to say to them before they break up, before it hurts the singer to think of them.
