lyrics

Afterward
In the car
I thought of what to say

Afterward
I turned the wheel
But you were already on your way
I saw you walking through
The one-way door

Before you turned
I tried to catch your eye
Don’t the years merit
One look over your shoulder goodbye

If I’d said different things to you
There might not have been
An afterward

I know after words
Are spoken
They cannot be unheard
But you did not warn me
It was kryptonite that I hurled

I only meant to say
We both have feet of clay
I love you anyway

I know you can’t come back
The place we made is gone
But I could come forward
And together we could move on

Before you know
New roots would grow
Who said what when
Wouldn’t matter then
Afterward
