Last Date - R.E.M.

It's over, our love affair
Too late now, I find I care
Her sweet love never more I'll share

Now she's gone, I'm alone
I was wrong, should have known
Took her home after our last date

I searched for a simple way
To tell her what I had to say
And I kissed her, then I turned away

Set her free foolishly
Destiny, misery
Tragedy on our last date

Took my ring from my trembling finger
Brushed the tears from my baby's eyes
Walked away, didn't know
That I'll soon miss her so
I guess I was too young to realize

So blind, I couldn't see
How much she really meant to me
And that soon she would always be

On my mind, in my heart
I was blind from the start
Lost her love on our last date
