The End Lyrics

[Verse 1: Halsey]
Every couple of years now, a doctor says I'm sick
Pulls out a brand new bag of tricks
And then they lay it on me
And at first, it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain
And I don't like to complain, but I'm saying sorry

[Pre-Chorus: Halsey]
When I met you, I thought I was damaged goods
Had a f**ked up childhood
And there's poison in my brain and in my blood

[Chorus: Halsey]
If you knew it was the end of the world
Could you love me like a child?
Could you hold me in the dark?
If you knew it was the end of the world
Would you like to stay a while?
Would you leave when it gets hard?

[Verse 2: Halsey]
So I ran into the clinic and I asked to see the man
With his white coat and his stethoscope
Like a snake around his hand
And I told him I'm not bitter 'cause I finally found a lover
Who's better for my liver, and now I'll finally recover

[Pre-Chorus: Halsey]
When I met him, I thought I was damaged goods
From a real bad neighborhood
So we wrestled in the mud
And I told him he could stay right where he stood
But I don't know if he should
'Cause once my God destroys the flesh, then there's the flood

[Chorus: Halsey]
If you knew it was the end of the world
Could you love me like a child?
Could you hold me in the dark?
If you knew it was the end of the world
Would you like to stay a while?
Maybe we could build an ark

[Bridge: Halsey]
We could sail on broken driftwood through the sopping wet terrain
And count the buildings and the bodies getting swallowed by the rain
And in the water, there's the doctor who didn't listen to my claim
What a shame, he's circling a drain

[Outro: Halsey]
When I met you, I said I would never die
But the joke was always mine 'cause I'm racing against time
And I know it's not the end of the world
But could you pick me up at 8?
'Cause my treatment starts today
