What are the Lyrics to last night on earth by green day?

The Green Day song "Last Night on Earth" goes like this: I text a postcard, sent to you. Did it go through? Sending all my love to you. You are the moonlight of my life every night. Giving all my love to you. My beating heart belongs to you. I walked for miles til I found you. I'm here to honor you. If I lose everything in the fire, I'm sending all my love to you. With every breath that I am worth. Here on Earth I'm sending all my love to you. So if you dare to second guess, You can rest assured that all my love's for you.
