the dark swallows up the sun
and there's no where left to hide
you are the one that will be by my side
you are the one that will be by my side

when the world takes a bow and decides to hang itself
the sun won't think twice and the moon sure won't help
the winds will all come down, separate the sea
there won't be a sky but love, you'll still have me
there won't be a sky but love, you'll still have me

when death becomes present tense with our worries to the window
we'll smile like the sunset cause there won't be one left
kiss me like you mean it, love
and don't forget to take my hand
kiss me like you mean it
don't forget to take my hand

and when there's no one to tell you,
no sign of life
you are the one that will be by my side.
you are the one that will be by my side.

think back to that broken swing,
back to nashville, now
remember the middle of the ending when you smiled
the actors took their makeup off
i felt like a child
when i realized my life was just a book in a pile
of past due memories lost and pushed to the side
i should really get out more often
i should really get out more often

so sing while you can
and mothers kiss your kids goodnight
who knows how much longer we'll all be alive
when are days are just little squares on a calendar page
all we've got is each other and none of us are safe
from guns war and poverty
we're just pieces in a board game
they'll keep us till they need us then they'll throw us away
they'll keep us till they need us then they'll throw us away

come hell or high water endings dressed up for the ball
at the end of the world, we'll go out in style
it's the end of the world, but we're going out in style

the dark swallows up the sun and there's no where left to hide
you are the one that will be by my side
you are the one that will be by my side
when there's no one to tell you
no sign of life
you are the one that will be by my side
you are the one that will be by my side
then i'll smile to let you know that it's all, all mine.
