"This Isn't the End" as written by and Adam Young....
An eight year old girl had a panic attack
'Cause the father she loved left and never looked back
No longer the hero she counted on
He told her he loved her and then he was gone

She tried to look happy in front of her friends
But knew that she'd never feel normal again
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes
And wanted him back just to tell him goodbye

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

Her dad was a good guy that everyone liked
But nobody knew he was dying inside
He promised his family he'd be alright
And then with a gunshot he left them behind

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end, no

The role of a father he never deserved
He abandoned his daughter and never returned
And over the years though the pain was real
She finally forgave him and started to heal

How close is the ending, well, nobody knows
The future's a mystery and anything goes
Love is confusing and life is hard
You fight to survive 'cause you made it this far

It's all too astounding to comprehend
It's just the beginning this isn't the end
It's just the beginning this isn't the end

    My InterpretationIn this song through my eyes, It hits kind of a personal note because me and my friend Marlee grew up together like brother and sister. Her father committed suicide at a very young age for her and seeing how they were like a second family to me it was hard to comprehend for both me and her. My interpretation of this is that the father was struggling with some kind of health problem that was fatal and told nobody but he loved his daughter. So when the time came around. He killed himself leaving his daughter behind. She was angry that he did that also conflicted. But eventually she realized that life is hard but love is stronger than that. So she forgave him finally and began to heal. She also came to terms with the fact that bad things do happen in life "This isnt the end" Meaning he hasent left her. and she is just beginning her adulthood and not leaving her father behind. Despite him killing himself he hasent left her. and never will.
