"The End Where I Begin" as written by Daniel John O'donoghue and Mark Anthony Sheehan....
Sometimes tears say all
There is to say
Sometime your first
Scars wont ever fade, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end where I begin
It's the end where I begin

Sometimes we don't learn
From our mistakes
Sometimes we've no
Choice but to walk
Away, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end where I begin
It's the end where I begin

Now I'm alive
And my ghosts are gone
I've shed all the pain
I've been holding on
The cure for a heart
Is to move along, is to move along
So move along [Repeat: x3]
What don't kill a heart
Only makes it strong

Sometimes tears say all
There is to say
Sometime your first
Scars don't ever fade, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end
End where I begin
It's the end
End where I begin

Sometimes we don't learn
From our mistakes
Sometimes we've no
Choice but to walk
Away, away

    General CommentIt's a cycle, I happen to have depression cycles just like this and I can really relate.

    The beginning is kind of the pessimistic stage, the stage where you just want to give up, at the end of this stage is when you can finally restart again.

    Then he reaches his peak, he feels alive and like he can do anything.

    But unfortunately he reaches his pessimistic side again, and once again has to start over

    It's actually a brilliant arrangement of lyrics, good stuff

    General CommentI LOVE the script, and i LOVE their lyrics. most have "good" music with "catchy" lyrics, as in, in my own words "if it rhymes and flows in time it goes"
    but few bands have awesome music with such honest lyrics like these guys have.
    and this song really its pretty self explanatory about what its about. its just wow, on them grey days this is the first song im in need of along with "fix you" by coldplay.

    "Tried to break my heart
    Well it's broke
    Tried to hang me high
    Well I'm choked
    Wanted rain on me
    Well I'm soaked
    Soaked to the skin"

    looove those lyricsss...

    My InterpretationI suppose my interpretation of the song is that it's of someone being hurt in a relationship, becoming depressed or pessimistic and ultimately reaching a state of mind in which you feel things can't get worse -- rock bottom and then finally finding it within yourself to see that the best thing to do is look forward and develop a more positive mentality. I believe the song ending on a negative note suggests that it's a circular series of events and it is likely to occur more than once.

    General CommentI think this is about being depressed in life (eg. you want to attain something but you always fail) and you are emotionally numb. You just cannot feel anything "Tried to break my heart, well it's broke... Tried to hang me high, well I'm choked" even though this things shall trigger emotions. It's just like meh... Then there's the middle part of the song where everything feels ok again but it just lasts for awhile and everything just hits rock bottom again.

    General CommentHe's been "defeated" and kicked to the bottom, but he's going to start again; this is where he "begins".

    General CommentMy favorite line of this song comes on the bridge, "What don't kill a heart, only makes it strong." - kinda become my motto in love since then. True, right?

    General Commentto me this song has a few meanings
    one.the end where i begin, meaning the end of his life is just the start
    and then it goes onto say, "now im alive and the ghosts are gone, shed all the pain ive been holding on" which seems to me like he is happy in the afterlife
    two. hes hit rock bottom and built himself back up again
    three. he was involved in a messy break up and didnt want to move on, but eventually got over her.

    Song MeaningI read an article about The Script. It said that most of the songs from the first album (including this one) were actually about the death of Danny's father and Mark's mother. I think that this song must be a way of saying "I love you, rest in peace" to them. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's it.
