Last Night on Earth song lyrics by Green Day



Last Night on Earth song lyrics by Green Day


U2 has a Last Night on Earth song (Michael Jackson had an Earth Song too!), and now so do Green Day from their album, 21st Century Breakdown.

Lyrically the songs meaning is that it's just a classic love song where a boy writes a girl a letter. This song is probably from the point of view Christian (the key protagonist of the album). 

The modern day context is that it was by text message via a mobile phone and he wanted to know if the message had gotten through. Could it be that the girl (or) boy was deliberately ignoring the loving texts? 

The lyrics are thus classic Green Day - at first glance it's a soppy love song, big dig a little deeper and it's a commentary on modern communication, immediacy and given the whole context of the album (fall of religion, people looking for something to believe in), it could perhaps even be even a last message before Christian commits suicide or his last good bye before he marches into battle. Onwards Christian Solider indeed. 

Last Night On Earth lyrics
I text a postcard, sent to you
Did it go through?
Sending all my love to you.
You are the moonlight of my life every night
Giving all my love to you
My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you.

With every breath that I am worth
Here on earth
I'm sending all my love to you.
So if you dare to second guess
you can rest assured
That all my love's for you

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you.

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
Did I ever make it through?

  5. This is such a beautiful song!! And I agree with the other person. It does remind me of the Beatles. But that's a good thing. The Beatles are amazing. However... sigh... I like Green Day more. (: Its such a pretty song, and its unlike the others Green Day has released in the past, which makes it even better. It shows you that Green Day can play rock AND this type of song. They are geniuses. And its so pretty.....

    Unfortunately, in order to sell more, one or two ballads are needed, as they actually are usually very popular and rather easy to write. They're almost always the band's weakpoint, though, I must say.

    Reminiscent of The Beatles, a lovely ballad

    Btw the albums concept requires ballads, it's a concept involving romance.

  51. this is our song.i was made to hear this by my guy just before i said yes to him :) and we obviously will have this song on our wedding day :)
    also i love this song musically too.and people above who find the song lame and weak,need to get their ears cleaned and/or their ideas of a song structure refined.
    did anyone else notice that they reproduced the sound of crickets in the beginning of the song? i love that :) and i love the guitar patch overall :)
