"Ending Before I Begin" as written by Darren Hayes, Ivo Moring and Mirko Von Schlieffen....
If nobody hears it, then how can I listen to you?
If nobody sees it, then why can't I show it to you?
In the depths of my emotion, I'm a spinning wheel;
All the world can feel-
As I delicately rip my heart out, I deserve more for it.

So let me take the waves out of the ocean,
Let me take the stars down from the sky.
Let me take away the dark light, I've been here all night-
Ending before I begin.

If love is a comfort, then why aren't I comforting you?
(Why can't I comfort you?)
If trust is a burden, then who've you entrusted me to?
(Who do you run to?)
I might need some information about letting go-
About hearts full of snow.
And a sadness so contagious,
I've become fond of it, oh...

So let me take the waves out of the ocean,
Let me take the stars down from the sky.
Let me take away the dark light, I've been here all night-
Ending before I begin.
Let me take the faith from your foundation,
Let me take the wrong then make it right.
Let me take away the dark light, I've been here all night-
Ending before I begin.

And in the end-
It never lasts.
This suffering-
Only joy remains.
I hear your call,
I speak your name-
A lonely prayer,
No one to receive.

Who do you run to?
Ending before I begin.

So let me take the waves out of the ocean,
Let me take the stars down from the sky.
(Stars down from the sky)
Let me take away the dark light, I've been here all night-
(I've been here all night)
Ending before I begin.
(I'm ending before I begin)
Let me take the faith from your foundation,
(Take the faith)
Let me take the wrong then make it right.
(I'm gonna make it right)
Let me take away the dark light, I've been here all night-
(I've been here all night)
Ending before I begin.

I'm ending before I begin-
It's ending before we begin.
Ending before I begin-
It's ending before I begin.

    General CommentI really like Cool darrens fans like u : )

    i knew lyrics would be here.
    actually im no pretty sure about the meaning of this new great song by Mr hayes.

    so lets start a disccusion about it, i might start by saying that it could be about a relationship that there is no communication ?

    btw this song sounds like Tension and the spark

    General CommentIn a relationship where the other person is withdrawing and it is unclear, that person shuts down, lack of communication, and it’s heading for an ending.

    Hearts full of snow representing the coldness and the sadness that comes with it is so contagious

    When producing Secret Codes, Darren spoke about the importance of not letting go and not breaking up and holding on to love; that was a theme.

    So the fightback occurs within the song: "Let me take the wrong then make it right. There are lots of pledges in the song that start with “let me”. It may be "ending ... but it is ending before I begin" And I am here to try and make it right. "let me"

    And there is reassurance “It never lasts. This suffering.Only joy remains.” Looking on the brighter side of things, most importantly … love.

    There is so much more that can be said about this song, I've only touched on it lighting, and it's my general opinion.
