In the End

Linkin Park

It starts with
One thing,
I don't know why,
It doesn't even matter how hard you try.
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know.
Time is a valuable thing.
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings.
Watch it fly by till the end of the day
The clock ticks life away.
It's so unreal.
Didn't look out below,
Watch the time go right out the window.
Trying to hold on, but ya didn't even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go.
I kept everything inside, and even though I tried,
It all fell apart.
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time--

Chorus
I tried so hard,
And got so far.
But in the end,
It doesn't even matter.
I had to fall
To lose it all.
But in the end,
It doesn't even matter.

One thing,
I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try.
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard.
In spite of the way you were mocking me,
Acting like I was part of your property,
Remembering all the times you fought with me,
I'm surprised it got so far
Things aren't the way they were before;
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore.
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end.
You kept everything inside, and even though I tried,
It all fell apart.
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time--

Chorus

I put my trust in you.
Pushed as far as I can go.
For all this,
There's only one thing you should know.
(louder)I put my trust in you.
Pushed as far as I can go.
For all this,
There's only one thing you should know.

Chorus 1
