"peter out" in lyrics

Sezen Aksu - We will peter out

it will surround us, an emptynes which will last forever
Suddenly everything will seems meaningless
In that day we will peter out.

Foo Fighters - My Hero

Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud

Like summer it goes, passes by

Ha de ludan lej, oh ha de ludan lej

O and when all life in the ocean begins to peter out
I still think it will be fine

Songs of Ancient Mesopotamia - A praise poem of Shulgi (Shulgi B)

52-55Let me boast of what I have done. The fame of my power is spread far and wide. My wisdom is full of subtlety. Do not my achievements surpass all qualifications?

56-76I stride forward in majesty, trampling endlessly through the esparto grass and thickets, capturing elephant after elephant, creatures of the plain; and I put an end to the heroic roaring in the plains of the savage lion, dragon of the plains, wherever it approaches from and wherever it is going. I do not go after them with a net, nor do I lie in wait for them in a hide; it comes to a confrontation of strength and weapons. I do not hurl a weapon; when I plunge a bitter-pointed lance in their throats, I do not flinch at their roar. I am not one to retreat to my hiding-place but, as when one warrior kills another warrior, I do everything swiftly on the open plain. In the desert where the paths peter out, I reduce the roar at the lair to silence. In the sheepfold and the cattle-pen, where heads are laid to rest (?), I put the shepherd tribesmen at ease. Let no one ever at any time say about me, "Could he really subdue them all on his own?" The number of lions that I have dispatched with my weapons is limitless; their total is unknown.

Öykü & Berk Gürman - Leyla

Ley ley ley leyla ley ley ley leyla
I loved you to the death
I die, i peter out from your love
When life takes you away from my hands

Garfunkel and Oates - The Fade Away

Opportunities for a college grad
The love between your mom and dad
Gonna peter out like a gay Cetera
Iranian relations since the Reagan era

Paramore - My Hero

Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
