If The World Was Ending - JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels

The Experience: If the world was ending... What would your choices be if they were the last choices you'd ever make...
The Vibe: Hope.
The Topic: Love. Commitment. Happiness.
The Value: Commitment.
The Tension: We weren't meant for each other and it's fine (other things and people seemed more important) VS. But if the world was ending you'd come over right (But if forever were so much closer, maybe you would turn out to be the one I truly love).



Music video: With the world ending, JP Saxe and Julia Michaels sing about each other from their own houses, until they finally meet up to face the end of the world together. A second music video came out during the COVID-19 pandemic featuring a slew of artists, in support of Doctors without Borders - the ones caring enough to come if your world is ending.

The Meaning of If The World Was Ending: It's achingly hard to know who you truly love. How can you tell? How can you be sure? How can you be sure you won't let them down? It seems so much safer to settle for less than forever. But if the sky'd be falling, if you were forced to choose, if suddenly forever were here and now and wouldn't last long... Then maybe your choice would surprise you.

Ask yourself: Why are we so insecure about actually loving forever?

Album: Hold It Together (2020)

LYRICS:

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'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, you'd come over, you'd come over right

If the world was ending
You'd come over right
