Song Lyric Sunday – Last Beautiful Girl by Matchbox Twenty

I had the perfect song in mind for today, and I was honestly shocked that I hadn’t used it before. However, I noticed that someone else already picked it today, so I went back to the drawing board. I did happen to find our theme word buried in the lyrics to this song, so I’m going to go with it. “A thousand lost forevers”.

Besides, Matchbox Twenty is one of my all-time favorites, even if it has been a while since I’ve listened to them. It didn’t stop me from remembering every single lyric to this song. I was surprised I remembered, but it was sort of like riding a bike. It all came back to me in a flash.

I do hope you enjoy!

This will all fall down like everything else that was
This too shall pass and all of the words we said
We can’t take back
Now every fool in town would’ve left by now
I can’t replace all the wasted days
The memory of your face – can’t help thinkin’
Maybe if we ever coulda kept it all together
Where would we be
A thousand lost forevers
And the promises you never were giving me
Here’s what I’m thinking
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
Tell me one more time
How you’re sorry about the way
This all went down – you needed to find your space
You needed to still be friends
Needed me to
Call you if I ever couldn’t keep it all together you’d comfort me
Tell me but forever
And the promises I never should have believed in
Here’s what I’m thinking
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
It’s over now – and I’ve gone without
Cuz you’re everybody else’s girl
It seems to me – you’ll always be
Everyone else’s girl
Everyone else’s girl
This will all fall down
Like everything in the world
This too must end
And all the words we said
We can’t take back
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last…
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
The last beautiful girl in the world
You are the last beautiful girl in the world
Beautiful girl
