I have been looking and searching high and wide for an obscure Julee
Cruise song called "Until the End of the World" with no success. Can
you help out here? It was written as the title song to a Wim Wenders
film of the same name, but in the end, the title song went to U2 and
Ms. Cruise contributed a cover of the Elvis tune "Summer Kisses Winter
Tunes" instead.

I am looking for the lyrics to this song. Bonus tip if you can provide
the guitar chords (no links to sheet music, please).

Just to reiterate, it's NOT the U2 version I'm looking for. Songs with
lyrics about Judas and the line "surrounding me, going down on me" are
not what I'm looking for. Don't get me wrong -- it's one of my
all-time favorites by U2. It's just not the specific version I'm

Dear merubin75,

Although I have not been able to find guitar chords for this song, I
was successful in my search for the lyrics (which were written by
David Lynch, by the way). Furthermore, I found out that this song was
included on Julee Cruise's 1993 album "The Voice of Love". In case
you'd like to purchase this album, it's still available, for example
from Amazon:

And here are the lyrics:

== Until the End of the World ==

When all the land was dark
And you appeared in light
Then the darkness cried

We danced above the earth
Through the heaven above
Sunlight, moonlight smiled
Until the end of the world

We touched beside the sky
The sun through golden rays
Whispering our love
Until the end of the world

Your bright eyes fill my soul
Your kiss a sacred dream
The dream is one that lasts
Until the end of the world

I hope that this is what you were looking for!
Best regards,

Terrific answer! Thank you for the in-depth reply and the lyrics. It's
a hauntingly beautiful song, but the ethereal style of the singing has
prevented me from understanding what's being said. I would've loved
the chords, but understand if they're not available.
