When the world ends, collect your things
You're coming with me
When the world ends, you tuckle up yourself with me

Watch it as the stars disappear to nothing
The day the world is over
We'll be lying in bed

I'm gonna rock you like a baby when the cities fall
We will rise as the buildings crumble
Float there and watch it all

'Midst the burning we'll be churning
You know love will be our wings
The passion rises up from the ashes
When the world ends

When the world ends, you're gonna come with me
We're gonna be crazy like a river bends
We're gonna float through the crisscross of the mountains
And watch them fade to nothin'

When the world ends
You know that's what's happenin' now
I'm gonna be there with you somehow

I'm gonna tie you up like a baby in the carriage car
Your legs don't work ‘cause you want me so
You just lie spread to the wall
The love you got is surely all the love I would ever need
I'm gonna take you by my side and love you tall till the world ends

But don't you worry about a thing
No, ‘cause I got you here with me
Don't you worry about a
Just you and me, floating through the empty empty
Just you and me
Oh graces
Oh Grace

When the world ends, we'll be burning one
When the world ends, we'll be sweet makin' love
Oh you know when the world ends, I'm gonna take you aside and say
”Let's watch it fade away, fade away”
When the world's done, ours just begun
It's done, ours just begun

We're gonna dive into the emptiness
We'll be swimming
I'm gonna walk you through the pathless roads
I'm gonna take you to the top of the mountain that's no longer there
I'm gonna take you to bed and love you, I swear, like the end is near

I'm gonna take you up to
I'm gonna take you down on you
I'm gonna hold you like an angel, angel
I'm gonna love you, I'm gonna love you

When the world ends
I'm gonna hold you
When the world is over
We'll just be begin
