Lyric of the Week + Video / U2 - UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD

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 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 
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
