Here Are the Lyrics to JP Saxe’s ‘If the World Was Ending,’ Feat. Julia Michaels

JP Saxe and Julia Michaels wonder “If the World Was Ending,” you’d come over, right?

Michaels said the apocalyptic love song, coincidentally written before the COVID-19 pandemic, took on a new meaning for her. “I think now more than ever I want to be surrounded by the people that I love,” she said.

Saxe told Billboard in April that the two were inspired by the massive back-to-back earthquakes in LA in July 2019. “After the earthquakes in Los Angeles, we were talking about how our decision-making would look if we were in a world-ending situation, what that would feel like, what we would want, who we would want to be with. The song itself is very much the kind of conversation we were having,” he said in the interview.

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

I was distracted
And in traffic
I didn’t feel it
When the earthquake happened
But it really got me thinkin’
Were you out drinkin’?
Were you in the living room
Chillin’ watchin’ television?
It’s been a year now
Think I’ve figured out how
How to let you go and let communication die out

I know, you know, we know
You weren’t down for forever and it’s fine
I know, you know, we know
We weren’t meant for each other and it’s fine

But if the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over and you’d stay the night
Would you love me for the hell of it?
All our fears would be irrelevant
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
The sky’d be falling and I’d hold you tight
And there wouldn’t be a reason why
We would even have to say goodbye
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
Right?
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
Right?

I tried to imagine
Your reaction
It didn’t scare me when the earthquake happened
But it really got me thinkin’
That night we went drinkin’
Stumbled in the house
And didn’t make it past the kitchen
Ah, it’s been a year now
Think I’ve figured out how
How to think about you without it rippin’ my heart out

I know, you know, we know
You weren’t down for forever and it’s fine
I know, you know, we know
We weren’t meant for each other and it’s fine

But if the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over and you’d stay the night
Would you love me for the hell of it?
All our fears would be irrelevant
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
The sky’d be falling while I’d hold you tight
No, there wouldn’t be a reason why
We would even have to say goodbye
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over, you’d come over, you’d come over, right?

I know, you know, we know
You weren’t down for forever and it’s fine
I know, you know, we know
We weren’t meant for each other and it’s fine

But if the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over and you’d stay the night
Would you love me for the hell of it?
All our fears would be irrelevant
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
The sky’d be falling while I hold you tight
No, there wouldn’t be a reason why
We would even have to say goodbye
If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
You’d come over, you’d come over, you’d come over, right?

If the world was ending
You’d come over, right?
