"All Good Things Come To An End (ft. Chris Martin)" as written by Nelly Furtado, Chris Martin, Nate Hills and Timothy Mosley....
Dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could die

Honestly what will become of me
I don´t like reality
It´s way too clear to me
But really life is daily
We are what we don´t see
We missed everything daydreaming

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end

Traveling I always stop at exits
Wondering if I´ll stay
Young and restless
Living this way I stress less
I want to pull away when the dream dies
The pain sets it and I don´t cry
I only feel gravity and I wonder why

And the sun was wondering if it should stay away for a day until the feeling went away
And the clouds were dropping and the...
The rain forgot how to bring salvation
The dogs were whistling a new tune barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could die

    General CommentThat "tree hugger" writes some of the most intense songs ever. That's why. The song is beautiful. Why destroy it by calling the writer a tree hugger?

    General CommentI think this song is amazing. Nelly has the most amazing way of making her lyrics sound so real. This song is about taking life for granted. Knowing that there are good things in your life and rushing throught too fast to see them. When she talks about dogs barking at the moon she means werewolfs barking at full moon their time coming to an end. Meaning that they are in a rush to get back to what they once was. Am I making any sense haha? Its basically saying that everything good in our lives is being missed because we are all daydreaming for a better one. Then those things will come to an end. It uses metaphors such like flames to dust meaning someones body being cremated or something being burned, something good and then being turned into dust. It also so says lovers to friends. Being lovers is so good but it always results in going back to being friends and so it has come to an end. Thats my opinion.

    General Comment"Well the dogs were barking at a new moon
    Whistling a new tune
    Hoping it would come soon
    And the sun was wondering if it should stay away for a day 'til the feeling went away
    And the sky was falling on the clouds were dropping and
    the rain forgot how to bring salvation
    the dogs were barking at the new moon
    Whistling a new tune
    Hoping it would come soon so that they could die."

    I love, love, love, LOVE this part of this song!
    I like how the personifications of the sun, clouds, rain, and clouds sounded like a mini story, a sad tale, of a day that the sun and clouds became apathetic (like human beings) and decided to cause an apocalyptic scenario. This song is beautiful no matter what mood you're in though! :)
