Oh, when the world ends
Collect your things, you're comin' 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
Oh, we'll be lyin' in bed

I'm-a rock you like a baby
When the cities fall
We will rise as the buildings crumble
We Float there and watch it all
Midst the burnin', we'll be churnin'
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 criss cross of the mountains
Watch them fade to nothing
When the world ends, you know
That's what's happenin'
Now, I'm gonna be there with you somehow, oh

I'm 'onna tie you up like baby
In a carriage car
Your legs don't worry 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 'onna take you by my side and love you tall
'til the world ends

But don't you worry 'bout a thing
Cause I got you here with me
Hmm, don't you worry 'bout it
Just you and me floatin' through the empty, empty
Just you and me, oh, graces, oh grace, ah

When the world ends
We'll be burnin' one, ah
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 pathtless roads
I'm-a 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 it 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 beg....
....begining. Oh when the world ends you and I
We be flying high above it all. Oh look at the new moon
You and me. Doie doie do. Oh when the world ends
It's happening now. And I am gonna be there with you somehow.
