"End of the World" as written by Peter Mcnulty-connolly, Marcus Mybe, Louie St. Louis, Kurtis Deshaun Williams and Michael Angelo....
I don't want to ride this roller coaster
I think I want to get off
But they buckled me down
Like it's the end of the world
If you don't want to have this conversation
Then you better get out
'Cause we're climbing to our death
At least that's what they want you to think
Just in case we jump the track
I have a confession to make
It's something like a cork screw

I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna fly
I don't wanna be dangled over
The edge of a dying romance
But I don't wanna stop
I don't wanna lie
I don't wanna believe it's over
I just wanna stay with you tonight

I didn't mean to scream out quite so loudly
When we screeched to a halt
I'm just never prepared
For the end of the ride
Maybe we should get on something simpler
Like a giant balloon
But I've got two tickets left, and so do you
Instead of giving them away to some stranger
Let's make them count, come on
Let's get back in line again and ride the big one

Don't you want to fall, don't you want to fly
Don't you want to be dangled over
The edge of this aching romance
If it's gonna end, then I wanna know
That we squeezed out every moment
But if there's nothing left can you tell me why
That it is you're holding onto me
Like it's the end of the world

    General CommentA quote directly from Matt, regarding the song.

    "The biggest love of my life had fallen out of love with me because he thought I had fallen out of love with him. This was the saddest thing that had happened in my life romantically to date.

    The song was a real attempt to reconcile with someone who meant very much to me."

    Using the metaphor of a roller coaster for a relationship, and that roller coaster, like the relationship, coming to an end. Also, about trying to let go at the end of a relationship.
