lyrics

i'm still here, still waiting for the words you never meant
i'm still there, some part of me still thinks you're heaven-sent
somehow i believe that we've still got a fighting chance
i never should have told you i'm the only one who understands

people always told me what they'd give me, but i couldn't hear
i kept thinking this one was the one who'd make me disappear
somehow, i'm still waiting for the things you left behind
to pull you right on back to me, i lost you and what did i find

a city with the lights off
i'm sweating by the morning tide
a city where the streets are dark
and i'm the only thing inside

‘Cause after all, you know I love you,
And after all, you know I want you,
Baby, after all, you know I need you,
After all this time.
After all this time.

open up my sternum there is someone else in me
he is strung between my ribs and stitching weights inside my feet
sometimes when i spot my face in photographs you're all i see
looking out behind my eyes and begging me to set you free

i'll let you go tomorrow (i'll let you go,)
i'll open up these fists of mine (heart saying "no,)
if i can make myself choke back this anodyne (you're mine")

‘Cause after all, you know I love you,
And after all, you know I want you,
Baby, after all, you know I need you,
After all this time.

i look back, right at
all the bright sides
round our love, our life
dark as the night sky

i'm still here, still trying to recover what I used to be
i'll resurrect the optimist i left behind last century
i know that i'm alive i'm gonna exorcise this ghost in me
i'll say goodbye to you and to the agony and ecstasy

now, i know (after all)
time flies (after all)
and I won't waste, won't waste
one more sunrise
looking back at our love,
our life
dark as the night sky
