    I have a bad habit for jumping to conclusions but I'm pretty sure this song is about someone dying but wanting to just talk to all their loved ones first. I mean, the song is called listen before I go so it makes sense. with just the first line she's wanting a very ideal way to die, seeing the world before she stops breathing, on the roof, with her friend. She starts getting kind of conflicted by asking to be told that love is endless but then shutting herself down with "don't be so pretentious". I started thinking that she might have been dying from suicide or something because of her acting like her friends don't care about her or just leave her, and saying that if they need anything they should come over now. If she were dying of a degenerative disease she might not be able to help them with whatever they needed her for. "sorry can't save me now" cemented that in my mind, because she's saying she's at the point of no return. You can't stop her from killing herself with an apology, that won't save her. anyway, no one else has said anything here yet and I don't think she has either so I'm sticking with it being an idealized death that she's singing about until she says otherwise
