Simple Minds - Waiting At The End Of The World Lyrics




Her working name was Venus,
Real name Kate Magill,
Keen looking at the tarot cards,
All of us said she will.
Looking through the picture book,
One last chance to see,
A photograph of you and her, from 1983.

When she was up all night,
Waiting for the end of the world,
And for you she was the only...

Walked just like St Peter,
Dressed in silk and tanned.
Knew every hip philospher,
Held everyone's command.
Said you'd like to see her,
If no one was around.
Said she looked like Nico,
From the Velvet Underground.

When she was up all night,
Waiting for the end of the world,
And for you she was so lonely.

Hey! D'you see?
Is cloud rolling back to me?
And hey, it's true.
No turning back for you.

I once knew a boy like you,
Oh now what am I to do?

It's a thought that's never ending,
The place that time forgot.
You might try to comprehend,
But you can never see the lot.
Grounded by the wasted,
Pounded endlessly.
Blinded by the headlights,
Of the 20th century.

When we were up all night, just waiting.
I once knew a boy like you,
Waiting at the end of the world
