End of the World, The

Skeeter Davis, Vonda Shepard


Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don’t they know it’s the end of the world?
Cuz you don’t love me any more

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don’t they know it’s the end of the world?
It ended when I lost your love

Chorus
   I wake up in the morning and I wonder
   Why everything is the same as it was
   I can’t understand, no I can’t understand
   Why life goes on the way it does

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don’t they know it’s the end of the world?
It ended when you said, good-bye

Don’t they know it’s the end of the world?
It ended when you said, good-bye
