"Never The End" was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, performed in Finnish (despite the English of the title) by Kari Kuivalainen. The original title of the song was "Päivä kahden ihmisen" ("Day of two people") but the name and one line in the lyrics were changed before the contest.

The song was performed nineteenth on the night, following Denmark's Lise Haavik with "Du er fuld af løgn" and preceding Portugal's Dora with "Não sejas mau para mim". At the close of voting, it had received 22 points, placing 15th in a field of 20.

The song deals with the singer's desire to keep exploring and pushing limits - refusing to say that an end has been reached.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1987 Contest by Vicky Rosti & Boulevard with "Sata salamaa".
