Waiting At The End Of The World Letra

Her working name was Venus
Real name Kate Magill
Been 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?
A 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
