Last Day on Earth (A Love Song)


I dreamed the world was ending
   So I called to see
If you wanted to spend
   Your final day with me
You checked all your appointments
   Lucky you were free
You didn’t have another
   Place to be

We agreed to get together
   In a warm and cozy space
A quiet little room
   With a big fireplace
We didn’t want distractions
   From the human race
With an asteroid approaching
   From outer space

You threw your arms around me
   You asked me why
I had waited so long
   To give us a try
I felt so stupid
   I wanted to cry
Then my alarm went off
   And I opened my eyes
