"The End" lyrics - PEARL JAM

"The End"

What were all those dreams we shared those many years ago?
What were all those plans we made now left beside the road?
Behind us in the road

More than friends, I always pledged 'cause friends, they come and go
People change as does everything, I wanted to grow old
Just want to grow old

Slide on next to me, I'm just a human being
I will take the blame but just the same, this is not me
You see, believe
I'm better than this

Don't leave me so cold, I'm buried beneath the stones
I just want to hold on and know I'm worth your love
Enough, I don't think
There's such a thing

It's my fault, now I've been caught a sickness in my bones
How it pains to leave you here with the kids on your own
Just don't let me go

Help me see myself, 'cause I can no longer tell
Looking up from the inside of the bottom of a well
It's Hell, I yell, but no one hears

Before I disappear, whisper in my ear
Give me something to echo in my unknown future's ear
My dear, the end comes near
I'm here, but not much longer
