ALL GOOD THINGS (COME TO AN END)


All Good Things ( Come to an End) - Nelly Furtado

Honestly, what will become of me?
Dont like reality
It's way too clear to me
But really, life is dandy
We are what we must be
Missed everything daydreaming

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?

Traveling, I only stop at exits
Wondering if I'll stay
Young and restless
Living this way I stress less
I want to pull away when the dream dies
The pain sets in and I dont cry
I only feel gravity and I wonder why

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?

Come to an end, come to an...
Why do all good things come to an end?
Come to an end, come to an...
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon
so that they could...
Dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon
so that they could die...
Die...
Die...
Die...

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end?

Come to an end, come to an...
Why do all good things come to an end?
Come to an end, come to an...
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon...
And the dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
so that they could die...

I just need to stop singing this tune in traffic. Especially the "die die die" part, which for some reason my fellow motorists always seem to think is directed at them.

dianne said...

Yes /t. my dearest,I really like that song; you certainly have some talented singers and musicians, I am just drawn to them somehow.

Oh Puggles my sweet, maybe you could sing it a little more softly, especially those particular lyrics. :)
I will try to find a song that's more soothing for driving as I dont want to be responsible for any 'road rage' and you getting hurt. ♥
I do like the song but I must admit the lyrics are a little strange, especially when the dogs are barking at the moon and hoping to die. :(
Maybe it was an appropriate post for Halloween after all, unintentional though.

i've never stayed friends with former lovers ..
of course, it's been a looooooooooooooooong time since those former lovers ..
i'd probably not be friends with them anymore anyway ..

Foamie my dear,I actually stayed friends with some former admirers (not lovers) for many years, one was a groomsman at my wedding which seems like 100years ago.
Quite a few have hung around and keep popping into my life, but still as friends.
Its the lovers you want, and still I say 'want' not 'had' that have eluded me and anything we did have came to dust and sadly to an end.

Your poetry gives you a touch of immortality. The body returns to dust, the divine spirit within returns to the universe from whence it came, but the love you have given and the people's lives you have touched will allow you to live on in their hearts, so no one every really dies.

That is so true dearest Phos , and I couldn't have written that any more beautifully than you have there. Thank you for that lovely insight. ♥ :) xoxoxo
