Songs that end with a verse
Most songs end with the chorus or a coda.
What are examples of song vocals that end in a verse?
The song must have a recognizable chorus which eliminates songs like "Yesterday" (ends with a verse but only has a bridge) or verse only type songs.
How about "I'll Be Back" by The Beatles?
Ends with "You know, if you break my heart I'll go, but I'll be back again," which is a repeat of the first verse.
Despite the presence of the title phrase, this is not a chorus, because there are three additional verses with the same melody and chord pattern, but different lyrics.
But what is the chorus? The chorus must be recognizable, the OP said.
Fact is, there are songs that don't really have a chorus. I see in retrospect that the OP demands that our examples here have one, though that seems a little arbitrary. I can understand eliminating songs that have nothing but verses (as some folk songs tend to do). But "I'll Be Back" isn't in that category.
It has an unusual structure for sure. Despite lacking a chorus, "I'll Be Back" does have the verses I alluded to — but also not one but two sections that sound like bridges ("I love you so" and "I thought that you would realize"). And yet, the first of these two is repeated near the end with different lyrics ("I wanna go").
This may cheating a little bit, but "Can't Get Used to Losing You" by Andy Williams fades out on the chords that underly its verses, even though nothing is actually sung over those verse chords.
