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

    Its about a baby and you can tell from the music video she has lost her child and misses them so much that she sees the child in her dreams and wishes that the world would end so that she could see her baby in heaven

    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 have met kate (cousins friend) and i honestly believe it was about a relationship that was falling apart that she wanted to stay and it seemed like the world was going to end.
