Lyrics:
If the world would end today
And all the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
if the world would end
And our love slipped away

I never knew the way that you look at me
Would ever mean so much to me
But in my heart I found
The feelings that I've never shown
And now they've
Got the best of me

If the world would end today
then all the dreams we've had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end
And our love slipped away

Oooh,
La la ...
La la ...

I never thought all the love I was lookin' for
Could ever be so close to me
But you're the only one
I have ever loved that has ever loved me
And now you've got the best of me

If the world would end today
And all the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say

If the world would end today
And all the dreams we had
Would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end
And our love slipped away
If the world would end
And our love slipped away


Quotes:
That track was particularly good to work on - it was a track that was recorded quickly. We did it very quickly and it felt right to put it on that movie ['Body Of Lies'] [DMG, October 2008].

It's about Environmental Decay in its Futurist Context [WickedInfo, November 2008].

Talking about his favorite songs off Chinese Democracy to play live: 'If the World' is another one. It doesn't have a lot of bass - it's mostly whole-notes. We've had to work on the arrangement to make it work with a live band, but I think that one will be a lot of fun to play live [Bass Playing Magazine, March 2010].

'If The World' performed live on December 16, Osaka, Japan:
