"The End of the World" is a pop song written by composer Arthur Kent and lyricist Sylvia Dee, who often worked as a team. They wrote the song for American singer Skeeter Davis, and her recording of it was highly successful in the early 1960s, reaching the top five on four different charts, including No.?2 on the main Billboard Hot 100. It spawned many cover versions.

"The End of the World" is a sad song about the aftermath of a romantic breakup. Dee, the lyricist, said she drew on her sorrow from her father's death to set the mood for the song.

In 1975, American pop music duo Carpenters released a cover of "The End of the World" as a promotional single from their live album Live in Japan. It was recorded at the Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan.

相信大家对The end of the world 这首歌不陌生。以前在国内听到的应该是卡朋特兄妹的版本,那时就已经非常喜欢这首歌。从歌词上看,这应该是一首比较伤感的情歌,描写深爱恋人分手后感觉世界末日要来临的悲伤情绪。但实际上词作者的创作灵感来自于自己父亲去世后的悲痛感受。

能够演唱这首歌确实是一种荣幸,一种能够唱自己喜欢的歌的欢欣喜悦!尽管是首伤感的歌,但却能让人感受到歌里的爱与温情!非常感谢歌友Owl提供的底版!

实际上我唱的瑕疵颇多,敬请大家多包涵!也希望你喜欢这首经典!

 

"The End Of The World"
歌曲歌词

Why does the sun go on shining? / 太阳为何依然照耀
Why does the sea rush to shore? / 海浪为何拍打着岩岸
Don't they know it's the end of the world? / 难道它们不知道这是世界末日吗
'Cause you don't love me anymore / 因为你不再爱我了
Why do the birds go on singing? / 鸟儿为何依然歌唱
Why do the stars glow above? / 星星为何在天上闪耀
Don't they know it's the end of the world? / 难道它们不知道这是世界末日吗
It ended when I lost your love / 当我失去了你的爱
I wake up in the morning / 当我清晨醒来
And I wonder why everything's the same as it was / 纳闷着为何一切如常
I can't understand, no I can't understand / 我无法理解,我真的无法理解
How life goes on the way it does / 生命怎会像往常一样运行
Why does my heart go on beating? / 我的心为何仍在跳动
Why do these eyes of mine cry? / 我的双眼为何在流泪
Don't they know it's the end of the world? / 难道它们不知道这是世界末日
It ended when you said goodbye /结束在你说再见的时候
