The Last Song

It's amazing how many things
are between New York and Georgia
that's where all the magic happens
You have an upbeat self centered town
or you have the southerners 
always looking out for each other

I got the push I needed
no longer am I afraid to 
"tickle the ivory" as they say
I felt it today when I was playing
I haven't felt that way in a long time
I play for myself to make me happy
and if others want to listen that's fine too
I have the strength now to play the music
that speaks from my soul
how I'm able to express myself
I may use someone else work
but I live it like it's my own

You can fight someone as much as you want
but you'll never think the day will come
when they're gone
and you regret every minute of it
There's so many aspects 
so many things that tie together in this movie
but "if we were a movie, you'd be the right guy"
"We all make mistakes
but we need to forgive 
and move forward"
