Last on his List

lyrics

I’m the last on his list
Below the milk and bread
Won’t spare me a kiss
Before he goes to bed
I’m the last on his list

He used to sing and dance for me
When he walked through the front door
Now there’s no more melody
In his heart for me oh lord
I’m the last on his list

Hand me the salt and the pepper shaker
These days have become bland
I’m losing my appetite for life
I’m losing my man

I’m the last on his list
And soon will come a day
When he picks up a pen
And crosses out my name
You may ask me why I stay
And risk such a disgrace
I suppose I live in hope that he’ll
Return me to first place

about

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
