U2 Until the End of the World Lyrics

Last updated: 10/30/2012 02:59:11 PM

Haven't seen you FOR quite a while
I was down the HOLE just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a 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 lead me on with those innocent eyes
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 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
Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait till the end of the world.

there goes another one | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/29/12

bono is too deep with occult symbology and subliminal messages to be a real Christian, just listen to the undertones, the imagery and all the pictures of him covering up his eyes, making triangles and all that stuff....I am so sorry for this but he probably is a freemason or under illuminaty control either way he seems a lot sneaky lately

Funny, only after reading the Review, I understood the song, about the last days of Jesus before being crusified. Interesting....

A classic U2 metaphor | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/2/07

The song "The End of the World" by U2 is a classic metaphor that once again reveals Bono's underlying religious beliefs. Just as Sunday Bloody Sunday linked Bloody Sunday of 72 and Easter Sunday and Jesus ressurection. Just as Pride (In the name of love) contrasted Jesus life with that of Martin Luther King this song is a metaphor for the crucifiction and betrayal of Jesus and is a conversation between Jesus and Judas Iscariot as they recall the day. However the song varies from most churches interpretations of the relationship between the two men after the event and instead of damning him to hell in Bono's interpretation Jesus says he'd "wait till the end of the world." implying that Judas would be reinvited to enter the Christian fold.
