The Last Song

Sumahi's current favorite song on Youtube comes from the Youtube creator Dave Days. There are a number of different reasons why she likes it so much, from the ice cream being thrown against the wall to the presence of large "papet palao'an" or paper woman in the video. She has also started to develop a love for Miley Cyrus videos on Youtube and so for those who know the lore of the site, one of the things which shot Dave Days to fame and Youtube fortune was his parodies of Miley Cyrus songs and videos. He would use a cardboard cutout (hence "papet palao'an") of her in in his videos, which he would both love and be tormented by. In this video, the "Last Song" Dave Davys finally gets to meet the "magahet na palao'an" the "real woman."

The video itself and the lyrics are below. If you catch her at the right moment you can actually hear her singing parts of the song (both in English and sometimes in Chamorro, because when I watch it with her I translate it into Chamorro when I'm singing along).



Lyrics:
This has been going on
Each second i look you're gone
You're not calling
It's time for me to move on
My friends were right all along
You keep falling away

Giving ups not easy
Its hard enough just saying

As much as i make believe
You're not really here with me
What was i thinking from the beginning
You didn't care at all

So here's your last song

I can leave it all behind
Or take another chance to find you
No where in sight
Going to the movies alone
Every scene that's shown
Reminds me of you

Giving ups not easy
Its hard enough just saying

As much as i make believe
You're not really here with me
What was i thinking from the beginning
You didn't care at all
All that's left are the memories
Constantly haunting me
I'm giving up it's time to grow up
You're not around and we're not in love

Laying around in around in this hotel room
Too much to think about nothing to do
She's not coming back she's not coming back

As much as i make believe
Something in side of me
Has got me hoping got me thinking
Who am i to assume

This love is crazy
Unpredictable maybe
You'll melt my heart like you did from the start
All over again like it's not the end

So here's your last song

Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
