Everything Ends

I thought that we’d be together
The day that when everything dies
But now as the world is crumbling around me
I can’t hear your goodbyes
Because you’ve been gone a long time
Deep down in the Earth
How was I to know you’d betray me?
And leave me eating dirt

Everything ends
So don’t grow too attached
And you better say your goodbyes
Because once you’re gone
You don’t come back

I burnt all of the pictures
Of you and me in the past
Memories we made
The happiness decayed
And now everything turns to ash
And as these buildings crumble
And I stumble through this town
The buildings they remind me of you
Because they just keep on falling down

Everything ends
So don’t grow too attached
And you better say your goodbyes
Because once you’re gone
You don’t come back

The flowers I bought you they wilted
Turned from red to black
You never really deserved anything
Yet I’d gladly take you back
Anything just for one second
One more moment spent with you
So we can witness the end together
So we can see this whole world through

A song about how everything ends, ties in nicely with my film "Nigh (see below).

A collaboration with autumnwind.
