Lyrics

Floods of tears and doors slamming
Stamping feet across the landing
Because of your obligation
To stay home and fight

Sitting down to a composition

Test the limits of your inhibition

If the phone hasn’t rung by midnight

It’s over tonight

If someone tried, you’d realize

It’s just a boy or a girl

It’s not the end of the worlds

Piles of toast and broken promises

Among the books and pens and reading glasses

It seems there’s no escape from the humdrum

It’s over and done

If someone tried, you’d realize

It’s just a boy or a girl

It’s not the end of the world

If someone cried, you’d sympathize

It’s just a boy or a girl

It’s not the end of the worlds

At midnight in desperation

Imagine total teenage destruction

The Prophets all predicted extinction

The virgin spoke in apparitions

And if it all came to pass now

You feel we’d all deserve it somehow

But if someone tried, you’d realize

(You’d realize)

(And sympathize)

It’s just a boy or a girl

It’s not the end of the world

If someone cried, you’d sympathize

(You’d sympathize)

(And realize)

It’s just a boy or a girl

It’s not the end of the world

It’s not the end

  1. Floods of tears and doors slamming
    Stamping feet across the landing
    because of your obligation
    to stay home and fight
    Sitting down to a composition
    Test the limits of your inhibition
    If the phone hasn't rung by midnight
    it's over tonight

    If someone tried
    you'd realise
    it's just a boy or a girl
    It's not the end of the world

    Piles of toast and broken promises
    among the books and pens and reading glasses
    It seems there's no escape from the humdrum
    It's over and done

    If someone tried
    you'd realise
    it's just a boy or a girl
    It's not the end of the world
    If someone cried
    you'd sympathise
    It's just a boy or a girl
    It's not the end of the world

    At midnight in desperation
    imagine total teenage destruction

    The Prophets all predicted extinction
    The Virgin spoke in apparitions
    And if it all came to pass now
    you feel we'd all deserve it somehow

    But if someone tried (you'd realise)
    you'd realise (and sympathise)
    it's just a boy or a girl
    It's not the end of the world
    If someone cried (you'd sympathise)
    you'd sympathise (and realise)
    It's just a boy or a girl
    It's not the end of the world
    It's not the end

  2. Love how the ending sounds like the song isn't over yet but another rhythm is just about to set in – perfectly echoing the subject of the song.

  3. I always thought "The End Of The World" should have been released as a single. It is one of the best tracks from the Pet Shops album "Behaviour."
