Last Time Around (song)


"Last Time Around" was one of the songs of which a preview was leaked online before the album release on February 2, 2010.

Background and composition

According to M Magazine Selena Gomez was the inspiration for the song.

Nick played another new song, Last Time Around for M, and it was clear that Selena was the inspiration once again. "Don’t forget the fun we had last summer, when the grass was greener and your hair was longer," he sang.

According to Popstar magazine the song is about Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus. Nick told Popstar magazine:

On his song Last Time Around: "Well, the story in the song is you show up in this place and you see someone who's kind of changed their look. And they've changed everything about themselves, whether it's because they've become more confident or they've come into their own, whatever it is. And you see them and introduce yourself and don't realize that you've already met them. It's like, let's get back to that. Let's get back to that moment where 'you hair was long and the grass was greener'".

On May 11, 2010, the song was used on the live album: Nick Jonas & The Administration Live at the Wiltern January 28th, 2010.
