"The End Of History"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

Headlights cross my bedroom wall
I don't want to sleep
Restlessness and nervousness
Are my constant friends

I stayed in hoping you would call
Every night last week
Watching films on video
Time and time again

Something strange is happening
I believe the world
Is a book for which
A happy ending has been found

I dreamed I saw a city full
Of monstrous little girls
Fifty metres tall they
Crushed the buildings to the ground

I heard they put a telescope
In orbit round the earth
And with it saw an asteroid
Rushing towards us

But I'm not scared, I live in hope
For better or for worse
There must be light beyond the void
Yes, I know there must

Headlights cross my bedroom wall
I can't bear to sleep
Ever since you called I've been
So happy I could weep

The sky tonight is full of stars
Searchlights and balloons
The world is ending, here we are
Together in my room

I'll be yours and you'll be mine
At the end of history
Through the darkness we will shine
Never lose your love for me

I'll be yours and you'll be mine
At the end of history
Through the darkness we will shine
Never lose your love for me

I'll be yours and you'll be mine
At the end of history
Through the darkness we will shine
Never lose your love for me

I'll be yours and you'll be mine
At the end of history
Through the darkness we will shine
Never lose your love for me
