Last Request 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

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 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, 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 :||

Yeah, lay down beside me

One last time let’s go there
Lay down beside me

Last Request – Guitar Lesson

Paolo Nutini’s first single ‘Last request’ is played with a capo in the video guitar lesson. We did this so the key would be right for the singer.

In order to get the same key as Paolo, simply play the same chords without a capo.

Using a seemingly simple chord progression, there are actually some very strange movements going on here. The intermediate course digs deep and uncovers all about it.
