Song Lyric Sunday (12/3/18) – Last

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is the word Last. I should have known she would do that since I chose it as an opposite prompt for last week. What is a Wulf to do? Ah…I know.

This week I decided go with a song that has both week’s prompts in the lyrics.

Cheap Trick is a band from Rockford, Illinois and found their first success in Japan in the late 70’s. They had many hits including Surrender and Dream Police. There biggest commercial hit came in 1988 with the release of the song I am presenting this week. Here is Cheap Trick with The Flame.

Another night slowly closes in
And I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me
I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
I can’t believe you’re gone
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Watching shadows move across the wall
I feel so frightened
I wanna run to you, I wanna call
But I’ve been hit by lightning
Just can’t stand up for fallin’ apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart, over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon.
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon.
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
And whatever you want, I’ll give it to you

  1. I was just a lad of 8-10 when a cousin introduced me to two bands during a week-long family camping trip in Arroyo Seco. One became one of my all-time favorites (Van Halen) and the other was Cheap Trick (whom I’ve also enjoyed throughout my life). Good share, brother!
