I never
Said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died we'd be together now
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that You never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever...
Ever...

Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall
If I fall (down)
(Wooooaah, woooooah, wooooooaaaaah)(repeat 4x)
At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home

Never coming home
Never coming home

And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me

Never coming home
Never coming home

Could I? Should I?

And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna...

    This song is very depressing song. I feel its about a girl that dies before her time. They had all these plans together and were ready to spend eternity in each other's love. Yet, life has a way of messing things up.

    Now she is dead and gone, and he can't come to terms with it. He never promised that he would always wait for her, but he can't seem to move on. He continues on with life trying to move on, but feels contantly haunted by her ghost. The only way for them to be together now is for him to die. So, he sits around remembering all the things that were never said and never done, waiting for his time when he can be with her again...

    The meaning of this song is that when you have a lover going to war you should cherish every moment with them and if you are in the war with a friend or so a -brother- event then don't forget to tell them you love them or anything like that cause if not and you die it will forever be unsaid,
    and when the say at the end of the world ,or the last thing i see i think means that the last time 'they' see 'them' is pretty much the end of the world if they don't come back :((
    sad song yes,

    I think this song i about the true horrors of war, and how all the soldiers were truly fighting for their lives. It shows how war effects them and how all they really want to do is go home to their lovers, but they keep thinking they might be able to.
    :( sadness.
