Halsey’s ‘The End’ Lyrics Explained

Halsey fans have been waiting for them to drop a highly-anticipated fifth album for years. Now, it seems clear why it took so long to come together.

Still, the first single has dropped and The End is about her illnesses and her fears over how they affect her love life.

She sings: “Every couple of years now, a doctor says I’m sick / Pulls out a brand new bag of tricks / And then they lay it on me / And at first, it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain / And I don’t like to complain, but I’m saying sorry.

Things get even more heartbreaking by the chorus: If you knew it was the end of the world / Could you love me like a child? / Could you hold me in the dark? / If you knew it was the end of the world / Would you like to stay a while? / Maybe we could build an ark.
