Until The End Of The World
Haven't seen you in quite a while.
I was down the hold, just passing time.
Last time we met was a low-lit room.
We were as close together as bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine.
Everybody having a good time...except you.
You were talking about the end of the world.
I took the money, i spiked your drink.
You miss too much these days if you stop to think.
You led me on with those innocent eyes.
And you know i love the element of surprise.
In the garden i was playing the tart.
I kissed your lips and broke your heart.
You, you were acting like it was the end of the world.
In my dream i was drowning my sorrows.
But my sorrows they learned to swim.
Surrounding me, going down on me.
Spilling over the brim.
In waves of regret, waves of joy.
I reached out for the one i tried to destroy.
You, you said you'd wait until the end of the world.
