Wonderful song about the end of the world. You may like Taylor Swift or not, but this song is almost not hers! I mean, it doesn't sound like the current stuff she does at all. It was done for "The Hunger Games" but putting it away from that universe, it's a song about the end coming near and still finding love to be the only important thing. As long as they are together, then they'll be alright somehow.
