The End

Album: Come Around Sundown (2010)
Charted: 82
  • Running with the streetlights,
    Laughing in the grave
    He swears he's gonna give it up, it's never gonna be enough
    I just wanna be there when you're all alone, thinkin' 'bout a better day,
    When you had it in your bones

    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end

    I see you in the evening, sitting on your throne.
    Prayin' with a fireball, and posted up against the wall
    I just wanna hold you, take you by your hands and tell you that you're good enough,
    And tell you that it's gonna be tough

    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    'Cause I ain't got a home

    Runnin' from the streetlights
    Shinin' on a grave
    Once you had the good stuff, never gonna fill you up
    I wanna be the one who gives them all the world
    And gives em all the feelin' of it, just a little taste of it

    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    This could be the end
    'Cause I ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam, no I ain't got a home
    Out there all alone
    I ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam
    No I ain't got a home
    I'll forever roam

  • Steve from PanamaThe magic about music and lyrics is you can interpret their meaning and even find like it was written for/about you, this is called pareidolia (your mind tricks you into perceiving external stimuli as signs from the universe) and it happens more often than you think. As I'm going through a difficult process right now, I perceive this song as about a breakup and how he was not enough for making it worth fixing things, while stating his intention of always being around for the kids and letting them know they were good enough and that it wasn't their fault at all.
  • Holly from Florida Timeless Song. Great songwriting.
