This Isn’t the End
by Owl City



An 8-year old girl had a panic attack
Cause the father she loved left and never looked back
No longer the hero she counted on
He told her he loved her and then he was gone

She tried to look happy in front of her friends
But knew that she'd never feel normal again
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes
And wanted him back just to tell him goodbye

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

Her dad was a good guy that everyone liked
But nobody knew he was dying inside
He promised his family he'd be alright
And then with a gunshot he left them behind

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end, no

The role of a father he never deserved
He abandoned his daughter and never returned
And over the years, though, the pain was real
She finally forgave him and started to heal

How close is the ending, well nobody knows
The future's a mystery and anything goes
Love is confusing and life is hard
You fight to survive, but you've made it this far

It's all too astounding to comprehend
It's just the beginning, this isn't the end

It's just the beginning, this isn't the end
