"End of Love" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
You're so sophisticated
Your mind's been liberated
You're the first to notice when a movement's come and gone

Just as the curtain closes
I strike authentic poses
Now that we know all the words to history's sad songs

So don't be apocalyptic
There's still time to get your last licks
But very soon the glory will make shameful what is true

And don't be apologetic
So what if it is genetic?
The cowards still breathe easy as their secret's safe with you

Are you still feeling bad
That your mother left your dad?
Are you so sure that everybody lies?

Guess what your pains been done
Took perfection by everyone
And the first thing every killer reads is
Catcher in the Rye

You're so sophisticated
Your mind's been liberated
You're the first to notice when a movement's come and gone

So maybe you should just release the doves
'Cause no one will survive the end of love

Maybe you should just release the doves
'Cause no one will survive the end of love

No one will survive the end of love
No one will survive

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that it's "To perfection by everyone" as in everyone has felt what she's felt, so it's not that special.

    General CommentI think he's telling someone who's lost their love (parents' marriage, boyfriend/girlfriend) that he's not the first person to feel like it's the end of love (or the world) and he won't be the last, but people get over it. He's also being sarcastic about it "maybe you should just release the doves..."

    General Commentthe first thing every killer reads is Catcher in the Rye
    -Mark David Chapman, the killer of John Lennon, was crazy obsessed with the book. A little reference there...
