Last Time Lyrics

by Lee Ann Womack

Like an old abandoned Ferris wheel
Time for me is standin' still
And it's you and me in mid-July
Underneath the midway lights

And all our friends are standing there
So I was actin' like I didn't care
When you put your arms around my neck
And I barely even kissed you back

But if I'd known it was the last time
I'd held on a little longer
And let that moment linger
And never let your fingers slip away from mine

If I'd known there'd never be another day
I'd have watched you as you walked away
And kept you in my eyes 'til you were out of sight
If I, if I'd known it was the last time

Now the midway lights have all shut down
And grass has grown up all around
It's an empty field across the tracks
But I can't keep from coming back

It was just another summer night
Carousel and roller coaster ride
And that silly fight that we got in
Didn't seem so important then

But if I'd known it was the last time
I'd held on a little longer
And let that moment linger
And never let your fingers slip away from mine

If I'd known there'd never be another day
I'd have watched you as you walked away
And kept you in my eyes 'til you were out of sight
If I, if I'd known it was the last time

And if I'd known then, what I know now
I'd never let you disappear into the crowd
Or turn away the way I did
With so much left unsaid
If I, if I'd known it was the last time
