  • When the world ends
    Collect your things
    You're coming 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
    We'll be lying in bed

    I'm gonna rock you like a baby when the cities fall
    We will rise as the building's crumble
    Float there and watch it all
    Amidst the burning, we'll be churning
    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 going to be crazy
    Like a river bends
    We're going to float
    Through the criss cross of the mountains
    Watch them fade to nothing
    When the world ends
    You know that's what's happening now
    I'm going to be there with you somehow, oh...

    I'm going to tie you up like a baby in a carriage car
    Your legs won't work cause you want me so
    You just lie spread to the wall
    The love you got is surely
    All the love that I would ever need
    I'm going to take you by my side
    And love you tall, â??til the world ends

    Oh, but don't you worry about a thing
    No, 'cause I got you here with me
    Don't you worry about a
    Just you and me
    Floating through the empty, empty
    Just you and me
    Oh, graces
    Oh, grace

    Oh, when the world ends
    We'll be burning one
    When the world ends
    We'll be sweet makin love
    Oh, you know when the world ends
    I'm going to take you aside and say
    Let's watch it fade away, fade away
    And 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 going to walk you through the pathless roads
    I'm going to take you to the top of the mountain that's no longer there
    I'm going to take you to bed and love you, I swear
    Like the end is here

    I'm going to take you up to
    I'm going to take you down on you
    I'm going to hold you like an angel, angel

    I'm going to love you
    I'm going to love you
    When the world ends
    I'm going to hold you
    When the world is over
    We'll just be beginning... Writer/s: DAVID JOHN MATTHEWS, GLEN BALLARD
