“Last” to me, is a reflection on grief. I started this track with
James a few years ago, and while writing it we noticed that we were
hearing the lyric differently, I was hearing “you know you’re lost”
whereas James was hearing “you know you last.” The duality of that
truth resonated with me, as both meanings are applicable when someone
leaves us. It has struck a more personal chord recently, as recently
one of my dearest friends passed away very suddenly.
