The end of the world

"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


I wake up in the morning, and I wonder

Why everything's the same as it was

I can't understand, no, I can't understand

How 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 goodbye


Don't they know It's the end of the world?

It ended when you said goodbye"


 

I've had heartaches and heartbreaks in life. I was devastated when I lost my mum in 2020 after a short 6-month battle with cancer, and then my dad to the same disease less than 3 years later.


I am, or rather was, a positive and optimistic person, and never ever have I felt like "it's the end of the world" as sung by Skeeter Davis and Carpenters.


But when I woke up today to blue skies and sunshine, the lyrics in their song describe exactly how I feel today and everyday since I lost Joshua, the day my world ended.
