Last Request
Paolo Nutini Lyrics


Slow down, lie down
Remember it's just you and me
Don't sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be

I just want you closer
Is that alright?
Baby let's get closer tonight

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time, let's go there
Lay down beside me

Oh, I've found, that I'm bound
To wander down that one way road
Oh, and I realize all about your lies
But I'm no wiser than the fool that I was before

I just want you closer
Is that alright?
Baby let's get closer tonight

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Ooh, lay down beside me

Oh, baby, baby, baby
Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me

Grant my last request
And just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders, no
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there
Lay down beside me

Oh, oh, yeah, lay down beside me

One last time let's go there

"Last Request"

Slow down, lie down,
Remember it's just you and me.
Don't sell out, bow out,
Remember how this used to be.

I just want you closer,
Is that alright?
Baby, let's get closer tonight

[Chorus:]
Grant my last request,
And just let me hold you.
Don't shrug your shoulders,
Lay down beside me.
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere,
But one last time let's go there,
Lay down beside me

Oh, I've found, that I'm bound
To wander down that one way road.
And I realise all about your lies
But I'm no wiser than the fool that I was before.

I just want you closer,
Is that alright?
Baby, let's get closer tonight

[Chorus]

Oh, baby, baby, baby,
Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?

[Chorus 2x]

Yeah, lay down beside me.

One last time let's go there,
Lay down beside me

My dad's funeral song. Whenever it comes on, I make sure I listen to it all completely. I'll make you proud.

Sending love to you. Rest in peace to your Dad x

Funny I was just wondering if it would be appropriate for my funeral if I die without a mate.

Alex Marshall

Probably the most powerful comment I’ve read on this site. I hope 2 years later you’re going strong. He’s proud.

egregiously disappointed

Any time and every time Paolo's tunes give me goosebumps! This is his early stuff but his new stuff is even deeper! Thank God for this fine, rare poetic , musical gem making this world a much better place!

Apart from the fact that he has a killer voice, I love the fact that he keeps so much Scottishness in his vocals. So many British singers sing in an American accent and it’s an easy habit to develop, but Paolo keeps his Scottish accent. It’s magic.

amri aye

​@Irina Firuti yes.. His family are of Italian decent but he's a paisley buddie

William Lavagna

@Irina Firuti He’s both Scottish and Italian.
