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

    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.

    The song is about.
    You know them dreams where you are falling until you hit the bottom but just before you hit the bottom you wake up with a twitch or a fright, yeah well in kate's dream she kept going and she hit the bottom and she didn't wake up before she hit. And at the bottom it was the end of the world and everyone was dead so she was recalling everything that happened in her life through all the sad and rough times etc.
