The Wonder Years – You’re The Reason I Don’t Want The World To End Lyrics

You’re The Reason I Don’t Want The World To End Lyrics – The Wonder Years

It’s already June
The light paints you pink
When it breaks through the cherry trees
You shout at the moon
We lay on your swing
I’m right where I’m meant to be

The gray moves aside
For the first time in my life
So I think that I
Got the dosage right

Devil in your blood
The dull, unmoored ache
The same one that haunted me
But the bearings could rust
And the circuit could break
If I love you entirely

I’m finding hope in the pocket of my winter coat
With your gloves — a reminder that I’m not alone

I’m scared to my bones
That I won’t find a way
To keep you and your brother safe

A fire eats the coast
As the sea levels raise
It’s like we’re circling the drain

The news keeps getting worse
The floods ‘n’ this drought
There’s a mass shooting weekly now
And it feels like you’re cursed
Like we’re letting you down
So, I’m gonna dig you out

I’m finding hope in the pocket of my winter coat
With your gloves — a reminder that I’m not alone
And you’re brave, so I’m brave, or I’m trying anyway
Put the work in, plant a garden, try to stay afloat

I don’t wanna die, ’cause I gotta protect you
You’re the reason I can’t leave here yet
The reason I don’t want the world to end

I don’t wanna die
I wanna light you through your darker months
I wanna swallow the sun
Before it can swallow us

‘Cause I’m finding hope in the pocket of my winter coat
With your gloves — a reminder that I’m not alone
And you’re brave, so I’m brave, or I’m trying anyway
Put the work in, plant a garden, try to stay afloat

I’m calling home, hear you laughing in the afterglow
And the reasons to abandon all my former ghosts
‘Cause you’re brave, so I’m brave, or I’m trying anyway
Put the work in, plant a garden, try to stay afloat
