Last Time Forever  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
      Did you ever hear the words  
      That said love would end I read them tonight 
      Mistakes I can't defend  
      I didn't stop to think  
      And I upset her 
      I said good night tonight the last time forever 

      I think of her tonight  
      She keeps me from my sleep but what can I do 
      With all these memories  
      I use to be so shy  
      And hide my temper 
      I'll say good night tonight the last time forever 

      It all went wrong when I grew jealous  
      I didn't realise my strength 
      Could take the life of one so happy  
      Together we were known as good friends 

      Did you ever read the words  
      That said I love you I read them tonight 
      But what good can they do  
      I regret what I have done  
      It wasn't clever 
      I said good night tonight the last time forever
