Ends Like This - Lyrics & Backstory

Verse 1


Rewind

To Where we are

And play


Sublime

Fragments of

This day


We’re mowing towards

Paths unknown

An exchange of words

The end unfolds


Verse 2


Blind

To where e faltered

Unkind, undone, unseen


If you imply it was fated from the start

It could move two ways

As the light inside was traded for the dark

Melted out the rays


There’s no way this could go on

There’s no way we’re getting out of this spiralling vortex of suffering

Say, what you will

Say


Chorus


I wish it didn’t have to end like this

It’s too late

To turn fate

If we could remain in a state of bliss

We’d, remain

(Bridge)


Chorus


I wish it didn’t have to end like this

It’s too late

To turn fate

If we could remain in a state of bliss

We’d, remain


And it ends

Like this


Ending


It ends, like this

It ends like this



Ends Like This - Backstory


As I usually do, I started writing the music or instrumental parts of the song before the lyrics. Starting with the verse which is the quieter clean guitar part with lots of delay. As the ideas progressed, I ended up playing around with some more djent / odd meter riffs combined with some event timed notes and that lead to the interesting riff you hear towards the end of the song. While I really liked that last part, I struggled a bit in the sense it didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the song and perhaps it could be left for another day and another song. While recording the part, I send a preview of the end riff to one of my oldest friends Bez and he replies, I wan't this full track now please! And he added, "Ended Like This" is the name of this song. At that point I had no working title, no lyrics or idea of what the song would be about. So I said, okay I can work with that and the song became about relationships that end and people going different ways. Something that's been happening quite a bit with differences of opinions, beliefs and often things said that can't easily be taken back.


Anyways, the really thing that emerged from Bez's giving the song a name was it made perfect sense to the structure of the song and combining the first part of the song with the ending which is a completely different tempo and timing. Both the theme of the song i.e. the relationship of the protagonist of the song and the song in itself....Ends Like This.
