Barry Manilow - Slept Through The End Of The World Lyrics




I see a ceiling
Four walls
Guess you all went away
An hour ago we were laughing
Lovers and friends
Maybe that was yesterday

So what’s the deal?
Did I miss something real?
When I slept through the end of the world

Nobody answers at all
I call
And there’s nobody there
How long since I’ve lifted my head now
Crawled out of bed
How long since anyone cared?

So now I lose?
Lie alone in the blues?
Cause I slept through the end of the world

Losing is a story I remember
Alone is a feeling that I know
Been awhile since losing shook me
Took me down so low
Yes it has

How could this ride be all over?
Four walls are all I see
I’m tellin’ the shadows and echoes
Shoulda told you
But I was wrapped up in me

So here I wait
Gettin’ used to too late
Cause I slept through the end of the world

  1. Toby Moses

    One of my favorite Manillow songs/recordings. Incredible lyrics, melody arrangement and vocal delivery. Should have been released as a single!

  2. Maria W.

    That sad moment when you all of a sudden are able to relate to this song... Man, what did I ever DO???

  3. DJ W

    Another amazing song from the consummate singer-songwriter, arranger, producer, pop star of the past half century!

  4. Pam Cross

    BEAUTIFULLY Manilow!!!

    Can you please post Letter From A Fan...so heavy so high...???? I would love to be able to listen to it on Youtube...it's ingenious! And so is Manilow!

  9. Great PurpleRobe

    Absolutely the best song on the album!

  10. Great PurpleRobe

    Absolutely the best song on the album!

  11. JusticeForTheDead

    this deserves to be a top hit in America. We need to move beyond "teen stars" just because they're young, because most (not all) of them have little soul in their voice, or aren't vocal talents, and instead are just pretty faces. This song is phenomenal and I mean that, as several other songs from this album are horrendously cheesy upbeat stuff. So, this song being so amazing deserves some play on stations that don't play Barry. Why can't this play on pop stations? There's no reason not to.
