"In the End" as written by Ayalah Deborah Bentovim, Maxi Jazz, Rollo Armstrong and Leigh Stephen Kenny....
All brawn and no brains
And all those nice things
And you finally got what you want
Someone to look good with
And light your cigarette
Is this what you really want?

I figured out what you're all about
And I don't think I like what I see
So I hope I won't be there in the end
If you come around

How long will he last
Before he's a creep in the past
And you're alone once again?
Will you pop up again
And be my special friend
'Till the end?
And when will that be?

I figured out what you're all about
And I don't think I like what I see
So I hope I won't be there in the end
If you come around

Hey
I figured out what you're all about
And I don't think I like what I see
So I hope I won't be there in the end
If you come around

    General CommentI think this song pertains to an ex-girlfriend who fed him a bunch of bullshit for reasons why she broke up with him and is now pursuing another guy "all brawn and no brains" I would have to say Billie isn't all that 'buff' and the new guy must be a meathead. This girl probably is stringing him along and he just doesn't want to be around when her new guy is "creep in the past" and she wants to get back with him.

    General CommentBillie wrote this song for his Mother. Billie's father died when he was about 10/11 so whilst growing up he was used to seeing his Mother with other men, and was rather sick of it all!

    General Commentfya no it wasn't. If you listen to the lyrics you would realise that it would make no sense- the song is certainly not written for a bloke!

    General CommentThis song is written for nobody. You can put anyone in this song. Your best friend, your girlfriend, your mother, your grandpa.
