SINGLE REVIEW: JP Saxe feat. Julia Michaels – If The World Was Ending

Hitting you right in the feels, JP Saxe and Julia Michaels have teamed up for an end of the world themed love song that will have you thinking quite deeply about your past relationships and questioning the big question of, “what if”..

Written after the Californian coast earthquake earlier this year, they reflect on the ones that have gotten away, and the ones they still have a deep regard for. They then question if the world was ending if they would come over and spend the last moments together and put their differences aside.

“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”. 

It’s a beautifully heartbreaking sentiment that will have you immediately in deep with this concept and thinking about your past and who you’d want to spend the end of the world with. 

Layered with soothing harmonies that accompany a simple piano arrangement with cinematic synths adding to the atmospheric approach of the hook, they give you a simply beautiful moment. 

There are so many lines in this song that will break your heart and make you feel so many kind of feelings. But there is one line in particular during the chorus about not having to say goodbye which kills me every single time I listen to it. 

“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”
