"Here's Where the Story Ends" is a song by English alternative rock band The Sundays, released as the second single from their debut album Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.

Although it was the Sundays' biggest hit internationally, topping the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart for one week, the track was never released as a single in the group's native United Kingdom due to the collapse of the Rough Trade Records label. Nonetheless it achieved no. 36 placing in John Peel's Festive Fifty for 1990.[citation needed]

Many artists have covered this song, including Chinese star Faye Wong as "Being Criminal" on Ingratiate Oneself in 1994, and Tin Tin Out who reached number seven in the UK Singles Chart in 1998,[1] as well as no. 15 on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

Tin Tin Out's cover version also earned the song the 1999 Ivor Novello Award for "Best Contemporary Song".[2] Crystal Bowersox covered the song on her second album, All That for This.
