  • I was distracted
    And in traffic
    I didn't feel it
    When the earthquake happened
    But it really got me thinkin'
    Were you out drinkin'?
    Were you in the living room
    Chillin' watchin' television?
    It's been a year now
    Think I've figured out how
    How to let you go and let communication die out

    I know, you know, we know
    You weren't down for forever and it's fine
    I know, you know, we know
    We weren't meant for each other and it's fine

    But if the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over and you'd stay the night
    Would you love me for the hell of it?
    All our fears would be irrelevant
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    The sky'd be falling and I'd hold you tight
    And there wouldn't be a reason why
    We would even have to say goodbye
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    Right?
    If the world was ending
    You would come over, right?
    Right?

    I tried to imagine
    Your reaction
    It didn't scare me when the earthquake happened
    But it really got me thinkin'
    That night we went drinkin'
    Stumbled in the house
    And didn't make it past the kitchen
    Ah, it's been a year now
    Think I've figured out how
    How to think about you without it rippin' my heart out

    And I know, you know, we know
    You weren't down for forever and it's fine
    I know, you know, we know
    We weren't meant for each other and it's fine

    But if the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over and you'd stay the night
    Would you love me for the hell of it?
    All our fears would be irrelevant
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    Sky'd be falling while I'd hold you tight
    No, there wouldn't be a reason why
    We would even have to say goodbye
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over, you'd come over, you'd come over, right?

    Hmm

    I know, you know, we know
    You weren't down for forever and it's fine
    I know, you know, we know
    We weren't meant for each other and it's fine

    But if the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over and you'd stay the night
    Would you love me for the hell of it?
    All our fears would be irrelevant
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    The sky'd be falling while I hold you tight
    No, there wouldn't be a reason why
    We would even have to say goodbye
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right?
    You'd come over, you'd come over, you'd come over, right?

    Hmm
    If the world was ending
    You'd come over, right? Writer/s: Jonathan Percy Saxe, Julia Michaels
