The Last Time It Mattered (lyrics) – by Dee Carstensen

I waited in the car outside the airport, as she ran in to get him.
I could see them through the glass.
The plane arrived on time. The man’s on time,
His life runs just like clockwork, but his face is just a mask…
Her arms embraced him. Or maybe they erased him, I don’t know.
She’s searching in his eyes, asking for a simple piece of information
And he cannot say.

And that was the last time it mattered, he might not love her anymore.
That was the last time it mattered, that he could not say for sure.
That was the last time it mattered that his reasons didn’t fly.
The last time that love would pass her by.

He left a window open wide enough for her to leave without a whisper.
Or a sweet goodbye.
Her love in the hands of another man was all it took for him to miss her.
Or to wonder why.
His thoughts embrace her, just like they erased her all those years,
and he’s searching in his soul, asking for a simple piece of information
and he cannot say.

And that was the last time it mattered, he might not love her anymore.
That was the last time it mattered, that he could not say for sure.
That was the last time it mattered that his reasons didn’t fly.
The last time that love would pass her by.
