"Until the End of the World", by U2

Haven't seen you in quite a while.
I was down the hold, just passing time.
Last time we met it was a low-lit room.
We were as close together as 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 led me on with those innocent eyes.
And 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.

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