Music Video

During January 2015, Max Landis directed the music video for "One Last Time."[2][3] On February 6, all of the editing was completed and the final version was sent to Republic Records; on that same day, the lyric video was released onto Ariana's VEVO channel. The music video was released on February 15, 2015.[4] Ariana's friend Matt Bennett makes an appearance as her boyfriend.

Plot

The music video is about a fictional apocalypse where the Earth crashes through Comet Eurydice's tail which leads to utter chaos. The introduction features multiple news reports describing the chaos. It starts with Ariana in a car, and she gets out of it despite being told not to by her fictional boyfriend, who was driving. She then punches through the police and a crowd of people, and the camera goes into an ambulance where a man is dying of burns, then it passes by a house where 3 people are fighting over a gun. Ariana enters a building and passes a family sitting on the sofa praying, then she enters a room that has caught fire from the heat of the comet. After this, she enters a room with many televisions playing different news channels and fights with a bearded man. Meanwhile, a countdown until the west coast is destroyed starts. After walking down a long, burning hallway with firefighters evacuating people, Ariana climbs up a flight of stairs and walks onto the rooftop. The video ends with her embracing her fictional boyfriend, played by Matt Bennett, as pieces of the comet fall from the sky and destroy the coast.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was a liar, I gave into the fire
I know I should’ve fought it
At least I’m being honest
Feel like a failure, cause I know that I failed you
I should’ve done you better cause you don’t want a liar

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know, and I know she gives you everything
But boy, I couldn’t give it to you
And I know, and I know, and I know that you got everything
But I got nothing here without you

[Chorus]
So one last time
I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that, I’ll let you go
Baby, I don’t care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Verse 2]
I don’t deserve it
I know I don’t deserve it
But stay with me a minute, I’ll swear I’ll make it worth it
Can’t you forgive me?
At least just temporarily
I know that this is my fault, I should have been more careful

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know, and I know she gives you everything
But boy, I couldn’t give it to you
And I know, and I know, and I know that you got everything
But I got nothing here without you, baby

[Chorus]
So one last time
I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that, I’ll let you go
Baby, I don’t care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Bridge]
I know I should've fought it, at least I'm being honest
Just stay with me a minute, I swear I’ll make it worth it
Cause I don’t want to be without you

[Chorus]
So one last time
I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that, I’ll let you go
Baby, I don’t care if you got her in your heart
All I really care is you wake up in my arms
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Outro]
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home
