The Last Time is a folk ballad, written about closure. It features some subtle, intricate guitar work and bursts into life at the end in a final flourish which relates to the lyrical content. It was supposed to feature with the 2014 single 'Solid Gold' before that track was moved to the 'Himalayan Skies' EP, due for release in the spring.

Lyrics and music by Karl Sloan
All instruments and vocals performed by Karl Sloan.

There are times in life when lingering emotions begin to hold you back.
When those emotions are pointless you can waste a lot of time. This song is about having the strength to call time and get on with life.
The Last Time Lyrics

I thought there was happiness, in a smile on her face
but that smile kept fading so, I dug a little deeper in case

And if you leave the light on, when you close your eyes
and if all your actions, are measured for size

If you strain your heart, but don't feel anything
it tore my soul apart, when i heard the fat lady sing

So this is the last time, I picture your face
and this is the last time, I shake at the sound of your name

Oh all that we ever have, is the moment we're in
our hopes for the future, and the places we've been

And not for much longer, will i be around
I'll leave here tomorrow, i won't stay here to drown

Well we might never have met, and some may say that would be better
but to turn from her eyes, when you're burning inside
and just let her go with forever

So this is the last time, I picture your face
and this is the last time, I shake at the sound of your name
This is the last time, I picture your face
and this is the last time, your smile sends my heart into space

I'm running, i'm running, i'm running away
