The End Of The World

The End Of The World

Do not fear, I don’t mean THE end of the world. I am referring to my song choice for today’s Song Lyric Sunday. I have picked up on the word “end” in the theme chosen for this week. I have also picked one of the saddest little songs I know of.

The sweet tones of Skeeter Davis singing “The End Of The World”, which my husband tells me is a rather untimely choice of song title! I do see his point.

Lyrics by Sylvia Dee and Arthur Kent

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
Cause 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

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

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

  1. Annette – this song brings back memories for me.
    When I was a little girl, my Dad had a record player which was not hooked up to speakers. You had to use headphones to listen to it. Only the connection was broken. Dad had to hold it in place while I listened to records he wanted me to enjoy. He had THE SOUND OF MUSIC soundtrack on vinyl and would patiently hold the connection in place so I could listen and sing along to each song.
    One of his records was a Barbara Dickinson LP and I remember her singing this song. It was amazing to me. I remember thinking it was a beautiful song – very sad – but I always loved the lyrics. Thanks for picking this….xx
