  • All the fear and the fire
    Of the end of the world
    Happens each time a boy falls in love with a girl
    Happens great, happens sweet
    Happily, I'm unfazed here, too

    Wasteland, baby
    I'm in love
    I'm in love with you

    All the things yet to come are the things that have passed
    Like the holding of hands, like the breaking of glass
    Like the bonfire that burns, that all words in the fight fell to

    Wasteland, baby
    I'm in love
    I'm in love with you

    And I love too
    That love soon might end
    Be known in it's aching
    Shown in the shaking
    Lately of my wasteland, baby
    Be still, my indelible friend
    You are unbreaking
    Though quaking
    Though crazy
    That's just wasteland, baby

    And the day that we'll watch the death of the sun
    That the cloud and the cold and those jeans you have on
    Then you'll gaze unafraid as they sob from the city roofs

    Wasteland, baby
    I'm in love
    I'm in love with you

    And I love too
    That love soon might end
    And be known in it's aching
    But shown in the shaking
    Lately of my wasteland, baby
    Be still, my indelible friend
    You are unbreaking
    Though quaking
    Though crazy
    That's wasteland, baby

    And when the stench of the sea and the absence of green
    Are the death of all things that are seen and unseen
    Not an end, but the start of all things that are left to do

    Wasteland, baby
    I'm in love
    I'm in love with you

    That's it Writer/s: Andrew Hozier-Byrne
