"End" as written by and Robert Charles/hallam Birch....
Now that summer's over
We'll wonder what to do
We'll finish our last nights in your car
Just like we always do.

I'll hold you closer and tell you I love you
but it won't matter in the end
It's obvious you're leaving soon
just another heart to mend

So what happens once you lose control?
When the future has to start
What happens when you're still in love
but time rips you apart.
Is there ever an answer
for when love is not enough?
When the world must move on
Who decided that I'd be that tough.

The day before those dreaded goodbyes
and kisses concealing the night,
I lie in bed motionless
Hoping somehow my life will be alright

So what happens once you lose control?
When the future has to start
What happens when you're still in love
but time rips you apart.
Is there ever an answer
for when love is not enough?
When the world must move on
Who decided that I'd be that tough.

It's raining as we close our eyes
Knowing soon we must let go
I loved another with my life...
But with time as my enemy, now I'll never know.

The end proves I can't do this
alone



Note: These lyrics are all over the internet but for the life of me I cannot find a version that doesn't have the "Don't let me drown" simply playing throughout the song. If anyone could fill me in on what this song is actually called, or if I'm just inept at finding the real version, I would greatly appreciate it.

    General CommentI have NEVER heard this version, but it is all over the internet. The version I have is

    "Don't let me drown
    Don't let me down

    I tried to be
    I can't get you out of my lonely mind
    I'm suffering
    How did I die"

    And that is played through the entire song.

    General CommentMan oh man I love the lyrics to this MIA version
    It's exactly what I'm going to be feeling come September when my girlfriend goes off to college in another state. I, being only 15 , won't be able to see her often and it kills me inside.

    "We'll finish our last nights in your car
    Just like we always do"

    that line relates to us too.
    I used to sneak out a lot and we'd just sit in her car

    =( another stage, another chapter...

    General CommentI love the lyrics... but like everyone else i only have the Don't let me drown version...

    BUT I WANT THIS ONE!

    Because the lyrics... were written about ME!
    Oh, well maybe not really. But they relate to my life in the most unbelievable of ways. So I NEED this version :'(

    It's obvious you're leaving soon

    He's leaving in a bit over a month... and it kills me all ready.

    General CommentI love this version of this song, to bad its not on the cd. Does anyone know where to find this song? I would love to play it for my best friend, you see in the last couple of years I have felt different feelings for him, and this fall he is going off to France for 10 months! It's like the perfect time to let him know how I feel. So if you know where I could find this song that would awesome!!!!
