Although the world is coming to an end
I don't think there's been a lovelier night
Walking slowly with you hand in hand
It's hard imagining we won't be all right
And if we never see the morn again
I will join the dead without a fight
If you lay me down
Lay me down

Never has the saying "now or never" been about the ending of time
But here we are in the eleventh hour
Finally somehow we're giving up pride
Looking back from here is not allowed
And since tomorrow can't be found in real life
Won't you lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Tonight

For best or worst, a blessed curse is our fate
But who could have guessed the universe would end up this way?
So this perfect evening we'll be leaving nothing to waste
Now is when love and history are made

With only minutes, maybe seconds, left
Will you press your lips to mine?
The beating won't be held within my chest
And all the rest of me is resigned
And though this is the last of all my breaths
It's the best one of my life

Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
