I am last of the Time Lords

Send away for a priceless gift
One not subtle, one not on the list
Send away for a perfect world
One not simply so absurd

My planet, my people are gone. I killed them, I had to. Genocide. My friends, my family, all gone. Dead, trapped in the Time War forever. They are all gone yet I survive. This is my curse. To be alone. To travel among the stars aimlessly.

In these times of doing what you're told
Keep these feelings, no one knows

I travel, and I find danger and excitement everywhere. But I was alone. Until Rose found me. She is, my friends always were the best of me. I was lost, the last and so lost untl Rose saved me. I will not lose her like everyone had to leave, but I fear it is coming. The end. I am alway doomed to be alone in the end.

What ever happened to the young man's heart?
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

The Time War was hell on Gallifrey. I had to end it, I had no choice. I am plagued with guilt for I murdered them all, all the Time Lords and the Daleks, the Nightmare Child and the Would-Be-King and all the other hellish creature that were unleashed. I grow ever older and I remember how I did this.

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

I stare into the vastness of space, and travel through the unending time vortex. My old life on Gallifrey is no more. It is all gone, dust in time. It has all changed, as have I changed. Have I changed for the better or worse?

Send a message to the unborn child
Keep your eyes open for a while
In a box high up on the shelf, left for you, no-one else
There's a piece of a puzzle known as life
Wrapped in guilt, sealed up tight

Rose Tyler, defender of Earth, remember my legacy, remember the puzzle piece I give you. I gift unto you knowledge and the chance to travel with me. I am trapped with guilt. My mind is plagued with it. Perhaps one day you can have stroies of the Time War, but for now they are mine. My guilty memories.

What ever happened to the young man's heart?
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

I can never remove this grief, where can I run; how can I hide? Daleks survive yet I am alone, it is alone but yet it lives on. I'm falling to pieces. How I wish to be young again, regenerations ago, long, long ago.

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

Why have they changed? I changed it. How can I ever hope to be unburdened? I only wish for forgiveness. I never meant to destroy everything, I just had to stop it. It was the only thing I could do. My life is in tatters, ashes across the stars.

Everyone's pointing their fingers
Always condemning me
And nobody knows what I believe
I believe

If there's one thing I believe in... I believe in her

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

I wish for regeneration, I wish for the end to come. I can never go back, I can only go on or not at all. I go into danger deliberately, and yet Rose travels with me now. I cannot put her in danger for me. I must look after her, for her sake. No matter my guilt, that is mine alone to bear, and she is my responsibility. I will not let her down.

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45
And I'm swimming through the ashes of another life
There is no real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

You were fantastic, Rose Tyler. And you know what? So was I.
