As The World Falls Down takes place in Sarah’s fantasy.  Although it is Sarah who is dreaming it, it is Jareth who plants the dream in the peach.  However, Jareth is also a figment of Sarah’s imagination so she is only dreaming what she wants to dream. At this point in the movie it is very clear that Sarah wants to be loved by Jareth, but is also frustrated by the power that he seems to have over her.  ‘Nuff said.  I love this song (and the DRESS!).

As the world falls down

There’s such a sad love,

Deep in your eyes

A kind of pale jewel

Opened and closed within your eyes

I’ll place the sky,

Within your eyes

There’s such a fooled heart

Beating so fast

In search of new dreams

A love that will last

Within your heart

I’ll place the moon

Within your heart

As the pain sweeps through

Makes no sense for you

Every thrill has gone

Wasn’t too much fun at all

But I’ll be there for you

As the world falls down

It’s falling,

It’s falling down

Falling in love

I’ll paint you mornings of gold

I’ll spin you Valentine evenings

Though we’re strangers till now

We’re choosing a path

Between the stars

I’ll lay my love

Between the stars

As the pain sweeps through

Makes no sense for you

Every thrill has gone

Wasn’t too much fun at all

But I’ll be there for you

As the world falls down

It’s falling

As the world falls down

It’s falling

It’s falling

It’s falling

It’s falling

Falling in love

It’s falling
