slept through the end of the world lyrics – barry manilow

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

n*body answers at all
i call
and there’s n*body 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
should’a told you
but i was wrapped up in me

so here i wait
getting’ used to too late
’cause i slept through the end of the world…
