When The World Ends,
Collect your things and come meet me,
And we’ll watch the stars disappear.
Too bad for them that no-one else is here, but our love has kept us alive.
Turn around and see the city dive.
Pulled below the ocean floor.
Then swallowed whole as the waves wash away,
All that we used to live for.
Come to me and I’ll hold you tight.
We will survive this starless night.
I will keep you safe and warm.
We’ll rise up as the buildings fall.
As we pass the furious angels,
Destruction and Devastation in their way,
While far below the devils play.
Nothing more can reach us here,
While even so I hear a whisper clear:
“The apocalypse is now! ” - the devils cheer.
Their exclamation ringing in my ear.
This can’t be so.
For we are here.
But now I know, it’s over, dear.
So come to me when the apocalypse starts,
And wrenches from us our bleeding hearts.
No more pain could we endure,
And we rise like newborns – cleansed and pure.
We are but two.
Within a crowd
Of souls who’s song is sweet yet loud.
And still I find myself so charmed.
