here's where the story ends Lyrics - Sundays

Review The Song (19)

people I know, places I go, make me feel tongue-tied
I can see how people look down, they're on the inside
here's where the story ends
people I see, weary of me showing my good side
I can see how people look down
I'm on the outside
here's where the story ends
ooh here's where the story ends

it's that little souvenir of a terrible year
which makes my eyes feel sore
oh I never should have said, the books that you read
were all I loved you for
it's that little souvenir of a terrible year
which makes me wonder why
and it's the memories of your shed that make me turn red
surprise, surprise, surprise

crazy I know, places I go
make me feel so tired
I can see how people look down
I'm on the outside
oh here's where the story ends
ooh here's where the story ends

it's that little souvenir of a terrible year
which makes my eyes feel sore
and who ever would've thought the books that you brought
were all I loved you for
oh the devil in me said, go down to the shed
I know where I belong
but the only thing I ever really wanted to say
was wrong, was wrong, was wrong

it's that little souvenir of a colourful year
which makes me smile inside
so I cynically, cynically say, the world is that way
surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise
here's where the story ends
ooh here's where the story ends

Lyrics make good sense | Reviewer: Gwen | 12/7/13

I faintly remember the song from the early 90s, but a few years ago heard it in CVS, as many commenters did, and had to look it up by the lyrics I could remember. I was delighted to find it and have listened to it often. I find the lyrics make sense to me, and refer to someone who was probably someone's secret girlfriend and they had rendevous in his shed.(memories of the shed make me turn red) He may never had publicly acknowledged her, and she feels cynical and would like to make him feel some embarrassment over it(the devil in me says, go down to the shed, I know where I belong).Showing up in his shed years after their affair might cause him some embarrassment. They two had nothing in common but their studies (the books that you read, were all I loved you for) and she has but a few mementos from that time (little souvenir, from a terrible, colorful year.)

London 1998 | Reviewer: Maria Morais | 10/20/13

I was in love for this song since I heard it for the first time in 1998 when I was living and studyibg in London. I came back to Brazil and only two years ago (2011) I remembered it again and could listend to.

Evocative | Reviewer: Chuck | 8/3/13

I heard this song for the first time only a few years ago when my sister played it for me.It was one of those rare songs(for me) that I loved immediately.It evokes a sadness in me every time I listen to it,and sometimes it's good to allow yourself to feel sad.The lyrics are ambiguous and at times nonsensical but I don't care.It's still beautiful.For me, it's about the end of a love affair,and the pain afterwords.

I remember seeing the video for this song | Reviewer: TJR | 12/9/11

I immeadiatly loved it. I got the album that this album is off of, It's called: Reading and Writing and Arithmetic. If all you know is this song, you are missing out. The album is equally wonderful

Her Finale | Reviewer: Fini | 10/26/11

I originally heard this song on a local FM station which was playing sets of 3 from each band that someone called in and requested.

I had just climbed into my car and started it up as the first of 3 Sundays songs began to play.

Without realizing what I was hearing, I had only moments before discovered my Love had been killed by a fuel truck wreck and the following explosion.

Funny, she used to love to scream, "I want to live life ON FIRE and go out in a BLAZE of GLORY!!"

The set was:

1) Love
2) Here's Where The Story Ends
3) Good-bye

My story | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/7/11

My one year old son died in July of 2010 from heart disease and about a year after wards I found a wristband that I had to wear to go see him on the ICU unit of the children's hospital he was in. While there were many other pictures or mementos of him and his time in the hospital, as soon as I found it, I instantly started thinking of this song...."a little souvenir, of a terrible year...."

Ahh nostalgia... | Reviewer: Trista | 9/28/11

I, like Lisa, was in CVS when this song came on & transported me back to nineteen-90-something when I was 18 years old. & I HAD to know after all this time who did this infectious song. & thanx 2 Shazam on my android fone, I found out immediately & downloaded it. & now thanx 2 this site, I understan d all of the lyrics, yay! This song is so beautiful, who couldn't fall in love with it? & I SO agree w/ Jacques, that human creativity is that thing that separates us from the other animals. I thought it was pretty interesting that I found that remark in this comment thread; I was putting deep thought into that just the day before hearing this song in the pharmacy... Odd coincidence ;-)

awesome and somewhat nostalgic! | Reviewer: maria victoria p.salita | 5/13/11

remarkable!i can visualize a bitter-sweet memory of anyone including me each time this song is being played.this song can also be used as an o.s.t. or background music for a story to be written for a movie,or soap opera or even a story for a stage play .or probably a closet drama for one's enjoyment.i can absolutely feel the sentiments of not just the singer but the composer as well.all his/her emotions are reflected on the song as if you are peeking into a's simply amazing

There's life in that voice | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/11

I first heard this song on a road trip into northern British Columbia, and then later while in an otherwise dreadful Italian restaurant in Japan. The girl's voice is infectious. The song has the mood of a damp spring night in Seattle. I could never track down who it was, then one day, my Zune recommended The Sundays if you like Cocteau Twins. I found a sample on Amazon, and gotcha!

stuck in my head | Reviewer: Lisa | 10/15/10

Heard this song at CVS Pharmacy today, and I was obsessed to find out who was singing. Bjork? Alanis Morrisette? The SUNDAYS? Who? Who cares, its a great song and I am so glad I found it. Catchy, wonderful, unique voice.

Lifetime Favorite | Reviewer: Southpaw | 10/3/10

Discovered this song in the mid nineties and have loved it since. The beautiful melody sung by a clear, mourning...almost crying voice rends my heart each time I hear it. I can barely keep from stumming my air guitar when I listen!

Loved it then, love it now | Reviewer: Love's love | 7/25/10

After the first time I heard this song I went right out and bought the album many years ago. It has never lost its appeal to me. The lyrics and melody always inspire a wistful longing for what was and what wasn't.

I also found it! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/10

I have been hearing this song in random places for years and neither I or anyone around me knew what it was. Finally, I guessed the title and found it on the internet. I'm not sure why, but I really like this song and now I know the complete lyrics.

Wonderful Song | Reviewer: Jacques Gholam | 9/18/09

Poetry and verse reflect our longings and set us apart from animals. This song was written from the heart and whenever I listen to it, I feel sad for mankind, unrequited love, thwarted ambitions, life's brevity and the invariable cruelty that goes hand in hand with existence.


I found it! | Reviewer: Pauly | 6/18/09

great song.. I was listening to the song for years on a local radio... I always wanted to know the name and downloaded it... yesterday I was singog the first part of the work! And finally i got it.. Nice song..happy!
