"The End" as written by Martin Edward Metcalfe, Derek Kelly and Neil Edward Baldwin....
Anyone
Who's shaken dust
Knows that it should fall back
Harmless
It's over now
Things have changed
Everything is different
And rearranged
We never got the way that we should go
Tears and heartache, nothing more
I had to play grown up in our game
That wasn't fair, that was the worst thing
And if didn't say this was the end
You would still be here now
We wanted to be out of our heads
In all that we could do
Daddy didn't buy you a diamond ring
And mummy's still waiting for better things
Baby's on his own now he's qualified
Remember I was there on his down days
You'll do good and you know that too
If I can give them I will do
Mummy's gonna buy you a brand new life
Mummy's gonna buy you a brand new life
And if I didn't say this was the end
You would still be here now
We wanted to be out of our heads
In all that we could do
Born leaders, no, we are not
Born leaders, no, no never grow up
Born leaders, no
My hands be still should my eyes be bright
And if I didn't say this was the end
You would be here now
We wanted to be out of our heads
In all that we could do
And if I didn't say this was the end
You would still be here now
We wanted to be out of our heads

    General CommentGod, I'm falling in love with this song more and more. SHIRLEY IS THE BEST EVER! I dunno exactly what it means. The lyrics are way deep. Anyway, I think it's about a relationship gone terribly wrong. She had to leave the person she's singing about. And it seems like she's blaming herself quite a bit.

    I love the "mummy's gonna buy you a brand new life" part! Those lyrics are wicked genius, me thinks...
