"Wit's end" in lyrics

Nothing to eat, stomach’s empty
No money, I am needy
No room, cold world
A thousand reverse questions
Uninterrupted brain fry

Bushido - Brain Fry

In school they asked constanly if everything's ok with me
if they realised, (if they) knew the truth
But I believe that what I am doing makes sens
because sometimes it's better to be at wit's end than to go mad

Jenny, my name is Jenny

Edyta Bartosiewicz - Jenny

If you go, if you leave me
Don't even forget it
I'd be at my wit's end, believe me, if you'd leave
You and this morning that's arriving early

Darko Filipović - You're The One

Sometimes I doubt the path I chose
Sometimes my dreams feel all on hold
There's no doubt that this will make me strong
Because it's the hardest thing I've ever done

Despite this cruel world

Halou - Honeythief

It is my space ship burning in your atmosphere.

A+B=C doing pique
A is you and B is me in my wit's end,
so our contact is maybe C.
and my space ship takes you on sight

Kasta - Closed space

I don't know
I'm at my wit's end
I don't know where we are
I'm at my wit's end
Blind from hereonin
Blind from hereonin

Wir sind Helden - Blind from hereonin

Exhausted faces line up on Touyoko's overhead rail tracks.
Speaking for myself, I am beaten failure of weekday luckily or unluckily.
I see and image my dad's youth in my friend who I have not heard a word for a while.
I wonder if the black clouds that cover riverbed darken my future.

The days of writing songs that I lived with loneliness was at my wit’s end.

amazarashi - Rain man

But then he got his latinum.[fn]The Latinum is a certificate that shows you had 5 years of Latin lessons in school. It is needed for some fields of study on universities (e.g. for theology or classical literature).[/fn]
His life took a nasty turn.
Because of that in school he was
completely at his Latin's end.[fn](This is the most difficult thing to translate ever) The saying 'I am at my wit's end' is literally told 'I am at my end with my Latin' in German, and that's the entire joke of this song.[/fn]

He was the best in Latin.

Wise Guys - Latin

And the coldness our limbs.
In your eyes still glows
The summer quietly,
I am weeping, because I am at my wit's end,
And you, you laugh about.

Zupfgeigenhansel - Autumn song

I wish...
Well, she was at her wit's end
I wish my son were not a fool.

Into the Woods (OST) - Prologue: Into the Woods

I looked into your eyes
and you were mine,
my abiding companion.
You left me one day
and I was at my wit’s end
the sky fell on me

Vicky Moscholiou - I looked into your eyes

We'll come out of this, out of this.

Nothing's gone right,
I'm at my wit's end.
I swear I'll come out of this, out of this.
You're losing your mind

The Head and the Heart - Cruel

The place is boiling tonight, who's the king ?
Right away, walls are reserved like parking spots.
But who can understand, when they have everything,
That a man at his wit's end strikes hard, fuelled by hatred,

And that we are not born and programmed to make some fuss.

IAM - Tomorrow Is Far Away

[fn]This song was inspired by Onelia Mazzi’s poem, written in the dialect of Modena, Emilia-Romagna.[/fn]
There are people who have black skin; they have to live with that skin.
There are people who have white skin, and to darken it they go to the seaside.
There are people who live the good life, and always feel like joking.
And people who go to rack and ruin, and who are at wit’s end.
There are people who have stuff and money, and their bellies are full every day.

Modena City Ramblers - There Are People Who Have

Oh I can't take another heartache
Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wit's end
You say your love is bonafide, but that don't coincide
With the things that you do

Nick Lowe - Cruel To Be Kind

I miss moment, when you walk in the door,
Becoming an empty phrase,
I am at my wit's end, it still hurts me,
Not to forget.
I miss moment, when you ealk in the door,

Jan Nedvěd - It misses

Your eyes which shoot
“I’m going to wring your neck”
and “We’ll never see the face
Of a child of ours”

Your eyes which shoot

Cali - Your Eyes

He passed by here every day
For he lives in our street
I always looked at him, he never looked at me
And I was at my wit's end

So I went to a fortune-teller

Tonia - A Bit of Sugar

Dinosaurs came and wrecked the city.
I ambushed with my psychic powers.
The Pleistocene epoch - a long winter…
I'm weak against mornings…. I yawned.
Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, What the hell is this “Pacific”…?
Return my stolen memories!

Sōtaisei Riron - Sumatran Security

Being at my wit's end
Even if it's a forced smile
Being at my wit's end
