"This Is The End Of Your Life" as written by and Ike Turner....
By brett detar

Hold everything dear, in your hand. In a moment it's gone, everything that you love disappears. Hold everything close, 'cause you may outlast it. Memories are all that remain of the way that it was. Watch it all go by, 'cause it's all that you can do. Everything changes so fast. For better or for worse, it was never up to you. Everything's changing so fast. Hold everything in.

You're a mess. It took years to attain and a second to tear it all down. Burn everything off, 'cause the feeling won't last. Memories are all that remain of the way that it was. Watch it all go by, 'cause it's all that you can do. Everything changes so fast. For better or for worse, it was never up to you. Everything's changing so fast. It's changing now. Listen, every single second counts. Every single moment leads up to now. This is the end of their life. This is the end of your life. This is the end of our life. This is the end of my life.

    General CommentThis is end of your life:
    What goes up must come down. Including fame and fortune. What you work hard to gain will eventually break down and you'll be left with nothing but a painful memory of what you loved. This is the end of your life.

    General Commenti think this is a really good song, at least lyrically. i dont really like the actual song, like the singing and stuff. but tjt's other songs are good. but i agree with what the song is say, like what Ntothedark said. i really like the line "it took years to attain and a second to tear it all down" bc it is so true.

    General CommentI love this song! It talks about everything changing when you least expect it and there is nothing you can do to save it! I think we can all relate to this in one way or another!

    General CommentTo me its moving on to the next phase in life. Everything you work hard for in high school leaves at graduation, etc. etc. As life progresses, so the things that we hold dear change and evolve
