Last Words by the Pea Pickin' Hearts was recorded at Sound Biscuit Productions!LYRICS:
Don’t change the station, gonna be a long, long day.
What’s our destination, where we gonna play?
500 miles west, driving through the night.
Maybe silence is best, no singing tonight.
But I know every word, every verse, every chorus.
Tired of my singing?Don’t you want a performance?

Shall we make a joyful noise? Maybe not this time.
You said sing another chorus? Maybe not this time.
Should I sing a duet with Dori? No she’s doin’ fine.
How ’bout Harmony with the boys? Maybe not this time.

The Train has left the station. It’s been a long, long day.
But my heart’s still longing to perform anyway.
You should close your eyes, enjoy a silent dream.
No encore for tonight. Let sleepy eyes sleep.
But I know every word, every verse, every chorus.
A lullabye for you? No final performance.

But I know this song. Don’t sing it.
Even know the verses. Don’t dream it.
I could drum the tune. Don’t beat it.
But I know this song. Don’t repeat it.

You claim my voice is pretty and worth a shiny dime.
Your silence now is petty, but my voice is still mine.
Just ’cause you know it, don’t mean you have to show it.
Listen with your ears, maybe just this one time.
But I know every word, every verse, every chorus.
Just let me sing for you–one final performance.

Shall we make a joyful noise? Maybe not this time.
You said sing another chorus? Maybe not this time.
Should I sing a duet with Dori? No she’s doin’ fine.
How ’bout Harmony with the boys? Maybe not this time.

But I Know This Sooooong. Maybe just not this time.
