Look down,
The ground below is crumbling.
Look up,
The stars are all exploding.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

It's the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It's the end, of the world,
And you've come back, to me.
In my dreams.

Between,
The dust and the debris.
There's a light,
Surrounding you and me.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

It's the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It's the end, of the world,
And you've come back, to me.
In my dreams.

And you hold me closer than I,
Can ever remember being held,
And I'm not, afraid to sleep now,
If we can stay like this until.

It's the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It's the end, of the world,
And you've come back, to me.
In my dreams.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

In my head I play your conversations,
Over and over 'til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And everytime anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.

In my head I play your conversations,
Over and over 'til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And everytime anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside

    This is the 1st time i've heard this song. Haunting. I'm sobbing like crazy. I'm in kidney failure & fighting several autoimmune diseases. I want to see my boys graduate from high school. I want to dance with them on their wedding day. I want to be an old woman with my husband. I want to be here with them, not just in their dreams.

    BASICALLY I FEEL THIS SONG IS FOR ANYONE WHO HAS LOST A LOVED ONE , BE IT BECAUSE OF DEATH OR EVER JUST PARTING WAYS , THE HURT YOU FEEL IS THE SAME , THE LOSS AND NEVER BEING ABLE TO HOLD THEM CLOSE AGAIN OR EVEN HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM AS YOU HAVE IN THE PAST . A BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN SONG AND WITH A GREATER MEANING . I THINK OF THOSE WHO I HAVE LOVED AND LOST AND MY HEART DOES STILL ACHE .

    I love how this song brings peace about loved ones through the sadness it also reflects. It makes me think she has lost someone and in her dreams she imagines them finally coming back to them when what is known to be the world is over and the last bit is her experiancing the ache that comes with that.

    I'm hearing a woman who's husband/lover had died. Her world is shattered, and she's standing amid the pieces. There's a shot that repeats a couple times of her hand moving in front of her abdomen, and it leaves me wondering if she's pregnant. Her world has ended, and she doesn't know what she's going to do. So sad, so beautiful.
