"The End" as written by and Allison Weiss....
boy you make it easy
to forget we ever met
all this talk of keeping touch
there's been no talking yet so
tell me when you're ready man
and i'll call you my friend
but i don't mind
calling this the end

boy you make it easy
for a girl to lose her head
losing sleep and losing time
hey losers never win so
shake my hand call it a tie
and i'll call you my friend
but i don't mind...
calling this the end

the end...

boy you make it easy
for a memory to bend
fact and fiction fading
into one confusing blend but
i'll remember good things now
and i'll call you my friend
but i don't mind...
calling this the end

there are people who have changed my life
there are faces i have left behind
if you aint up to it i'll let it die
but its up to you
to change my mind

boy you got it easy leaving
starting over fresh
abandoning beginnings that
you brought to life and left
so pack your bags and say goodbye
and call me sometime friend
but i don't mind...
calling this the end

    General CommentI don't know how anyone hasn't commented on this yet...

    I think this is about finally letting go of the feelings/bitterness she had for this one guy. When they separated/parted ways, they promised they'd stay friends, but he never put forth the effort to make that happen. I'm guessing she did though. She kind of understands his view point, but is still a bit sad about it, and if he's ever ready to be friends again, she'll be waiting.

    Song MeaningI think abeesting pretty much got the meaning head on.


    "fact and fiction fading
    into one confusing blend"

    I think that line says a lot. It's how you hae all these memories of the person that were great, but you're not even sure if they were as good as you remember them because the person seems not to care about you anymore. Sometimes you make the memories better than they were.


    "boy you got it easy leaving
    starting over fresh
    abandoning beginnings that
    you brought to life and left"

    The first line makes it clear that it was him who left, and he got the easy part of it, because she's the one who has to see reminders of him, and he got to go to a new place where he was able to create a fresh new life.

    "so pack your bags and say goodbye
    and call me sometime friend
    but i don't mind...
    calling this the end"

    She's basically saying that if he ever tried to get in contact with her, she'd be welcome to it, but she's accepted that if he doesn't, she's fine with that as well.

    General Commenti agree with you its a beautiful and sung just the right was as if she doesnt mind its over i cant remember how i came across the song i think it was becuause i was listening to the show by lenka and i tunes recomended it it is i agree about him leaving but sang like it was a joint decision of just falling out of love or maybe he went away with work and they couldnt cope with the long distant relationship they should do a carry on song on this on why he didnt call maybe because he found it hard to be around her after leaving but shed rather have him in her life as a friend than not at all

    General CommentDefinately can relate.

    Basically she's just explaining to the guy how much of
    an impact he had on her life, and that although they aren't together
    or maybe never were she still doesn't mind calling him her friend.
    He left her, but she forgives him and just wishes everything could be resolved,
    by saying let's just be friends.
