Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You were talking about the end of the world

I took the money
I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You lead me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Love, love, love
Love
Love, love
Love, love, love
Love (love)
Love, love

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret and waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Til the end of the world

    My InterpretationIt's interesting that this song is sung from Judas' perspective. There may or may not be hope for Judas. Jesus said of him, "The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born." Although the betrayal was part of God's plan, Judas bore the responsibility for his actions.

    But the song is also talking about us. If Jesus died, as he claimed, for the sins of the world, then each of us bears responsibility for his death. We all say that we respect the man Jesus Christ, but our actions betray our words. Honest hate is better than deceitful respect. When we honor Christ and then act wrongly, we give Him the kiss of betrayal. Those of us who go to church and take the Sacrament can even relate to the first verse, eating and drinking with Christ--then going and selling him out.

    Jesus promises that those of us who come to him in repentance--no matter how many times we've betrayed him--will find forgiveness, because that's what he died to win for us. "I reach out to the one I tried to destroy" because all along he was doing it to forgive me.
