After Us


words and music by Michael J. Parker and Rick Paul

You left me feeling hopeless
Didn’’t even see you cry
I drove around for hours
’’Til my Mustang found your drive

You said don’’t call or come by
You said this time we’’re through
But “goodbye” wasn’t good for me
So I kept after you

After us, after love
After all I lost sight of
After all, after you
Nothing comes close
No other love could ever be enough
After us

Saw you wipe away a teardrop
As you finally let me in
I’’d already said I’’m sorry
Still I said it again

There was pain and love in your eyes
And it knocked me to the floor
But I saw strength inside you
Like I’’d never seen before

After us, after love
After all I lost sight of
After all, after you
Nothing comes close
No other love could ever be enough
After us

Could it be there’’s hope
We might take another chance
Could it be neither one of us
Can imagine life…

After us, after love
After all I lost sight of
After all, after you
Nothing comes close
No other love could ever be enough
After us
