"To the End" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
All those dirty words
(Jusqu'à la fin)
They make us look so dumb
(En plein soleil)
Been drinking far too much
(Jusqu'à la fin)
And neither of us mean what we say (en plein amour)
Well, you and I
Collapsed in love
And it looks like we might have made it
Yes, it
Looks like we've made it to the end

What happened to us?
(Jusqu'à la fin)
Soon it will be gone forever
(En plein soleil)
Infatuated only with ourselves (jusqu'à la fin)
And neither of us can think straight anymore (en plein amour)
Well, you and I
Collapsed in love
And it looks like we might have made it
Yes, it
Looks like we've made it to the end

When you and I
Collapsed in love
Well, it looks like we might have made it
Yes, it
Looks like we've made it to the end

(En plein amour) you and I, we just
Collapsed in love
And it looks like we might have made it
Yes, it
Looks like we've made it to the end

(En plein soleil)
(En plein soleil)

    General CommentI disagree... I would lean towards having them having gotten to the end of their relationship based on the lines "What happened to us/Soon it will be gone forever/Infatuated only with ourselves/And neither of us can think straight anymore" Those lines clearly refer to two people NOT sharing anything together anymore. Although, before I analyzed the lyrics this morning, I always thought it was talking about something that had been victorious for them, arriving at the end together, but I could never understand the rest of the words due to the cockney accent! [I'm from the US]

    Cheers!

    General CommentI don't think we're supposed to know which way it is....are they either getting together for the first time, drunk, at a party or pub, or are they splitting up after a failed romance? Depends on how u want to listen to it. Genius.

    General CommentSo ambigious - either they've got to the end together, or they have come to the end of their relationship. Anybody favour one of those explanations?

    General CommentI'd go with it meaning that they've gotten there together, not that it's the end of them as a unit.

    General Commentit's a beautiful little song - the french voice over the top of certain lines in the song is an excellent touch

    General CommentI think the cockney accent of Damon is aesthetically elegant!

    General CommentI kind of thought it was the end of a relationship but could easily be both. Meeting in the first verse, falling apart in the second. No way these people are together at the end of the song though. Jusque la fin, en plein soleil- until the end, in full sun- doesn't work in the light of day.
