Written by Lorraine McColgan & Ed McGinley


If you choose to be free
You’ll never know the best of me
That’s the part I really want to show
But if your heart plays the field
Because I’ve hurt you, tell me please
Don’t let me be the last one to know

I could smile, I could cry
I could look you in the eye
It wouldn’t give me anywhere to go
So you’ll give me your best
Well, what do I do with the rest?
Don’t let me be the last one to know

If it really is the end
You’ll be losing our love

All our traces are here
The marks of love that cost us dear
A yearling leaves his footprints in the snow
Does he run to be free?
Or make the tracks of destiny?
Don’t let me be the last one to know
Don’t let me be the last one to know

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
