Have you heard the news of our impending doom
Weighs me down like a diving bell
Have you heard the news, oh but of course you have
You always take these things so well
You’re so calm
You’re so cool
You’re so nothing is going to ruin the day for you

When the hour comes, can I sit with you
And watch the sky go cherry red?
You’ve got so many friends
Can I sit with you
And rest my head against your head?

You’re so calm
You’re so cool
You’re so—nothing is going to ruin the day for you
No, nothing is going to ruin the day for you
No, nothing is going to ruin
Nothing is going to ruin
Nothing is going to ruin the day for you
No, nothing
Nothing
Oh no

When the hour comes, can I sit with you
And watch the sky go cherry red?

    My InterpretationThis song is about someone wanting to die with someone they think is 'so calm' and 'so cool' at the end of the world. I think it's really sweet.

    The first line gives it away as he is talking about the 'impending doom' and he goes on to ask "When the hour comes, can I sit with you and watch the sky go cherry red" As if a meteor or other flying projectile would come crashing into the earth.
