What would you do if we woke up and the whole world was gone?
Well, would you believe with me is where you belong?
Well there goes the world and we're right in the middle
There goes the world and we're right in the middle
I said leave me here
I said leave me here with you

As the city crumbles I see that there's nothing left behind
As we lay here together I feel your heart beat with mine
With time standing still, here is where we've always been
Well there goes the world and we're right in the middle again

I said leave me here
I said leave me here
I said leave me here
I said leave me here with you

Hey you, where are we going from here?
Hey you, where are we going from here?
Hey you, where are we going?
Cuz there goes the world and I'm right in the middle with you
I'm right in the middle with you
I'm right in the middle with you
I'm right in the middle with you
I'm right in the middle with you

    General CommentI'm surprised no one commented on this one. I absolutely love this song. I think it's about two people coming to terms with having feelings for each other, like being reunited after a break up they regret.... maybe.

    General CommentI'm saying that this is a love song. Please don't kill me for saying that, but most of the songs on Gasoline were break-up songs...

    General Commentyes this song is definitely a love song. its pretty self explanatory, and yes i agree with you 4.ever and a day, they normally are break-up songs on this album. but his song is undoubtedly a love song.

    its talking about how much he loves this girl, and how he will stick by her and never leave her , even if the world is crumbling and everything is being destroyed, he will stay with her until the end.

    its saying "where are we going from here"
    hes going to stay with her, never let her go, and find a way to make it with her, regardless of whats going on.

    this song kinda sums up the way i feel about my girlfriend

    General CommentThis is me and my girlfriend's song.
    we take it to mean watching the world go by outside you while she and I lay there together and just feel each other's heartbeats.

    Love in its purest form.
