The Last Day on Earth by Kate Miller-Heidke

What do you think?

‘The Last Day On Earth’ was written by Kate Miller-Heidke and her husband in 2009. It is a song about lost love and heartache. As Kate Miller-Heidke told The Daily Telegraph in an interview:

“A lot of people online seem to think I am heralding the end of the world in 2012; others have suggested it is about a soldier who isn’t coming home because the video is filmed in an old house,” she says. “Someone suggested it is about miscarriage because I am clutching my stomach during the video.

“It’s all of those things … it comes down to the emotion of the music that people have connected with, the emotion of grief and loss and heartbreak. And yes, the tears in the video were 100 per cent real but after about 10 takes I was all dried up.”

Lyrics

Look down,
The ground below is crumbling.
Look up,
The stars are all exploding.
Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah
It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.
Between,
The dust and the debris.
There’s a light,
Surrounding you and me.
Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah
It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.
And you hold me closer than I,
Can ever remember being held,
And I’m not, afraid to sleep now,
If we can stay like this until.
It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.
Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah 
 
 In my head I repeat our conversations,
Over and over ’til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And every time anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
In my head I repeat our conversations,
Over and over ’til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And every time anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
