After all this time...
Just let it go through your head, how many people you still stand at your side.
Even after all this time,
Think about all those you met again.
Even after all this time.

But not everything is happy after all this time.
Just enough to keep on living.

After all this time

 

After all this time, after all the pain

I still find words that rhyme, I still call myself sane.

 

You said goodbye, you did it with good intentions.

Not just our talks were dry, so you left to relief the tensions

 

After all those moments, after all we witnessed.

You wished for people's sentiments, you wished to be blessed.

 

-I wonder what you see when you look at our old picture.-

-You still keep it with you, I know it, you believe in a future.-

 

After all these years, after all the sadness.

I overcame my fears, I turned away from madness.

 

Though I wonder, what has changed in your life?

This is what I ponder, have you thrown away the knife?

 

After all the stress, after all those deaths.

I am no more in distress, I survived all of life's test.

 

-I wonder what you see when you look at our old picture.-

-You still keep it with you, I know it, you believe in a future.-

 

After all this time you've let me go, after all the loss.

My thoughts about you make time slow, weight heavy as a cross.

 

It has been so long, you surely have forgotten me.

Still I want to be wrong, your smile is all I want to see.

 

After all the words dropped, after it all just ended.

Our talks stopped, you did what you intended.

 

-I wonder what you see when you look at our old picture.-

-You still keep it with you, I know it, you believe in a future.-

 

But when I see you in the crowd, when I see your face.

I think only looking is allowed, not talking or an embrace.

You chose him over me and of that I'm proud, you found your place.

 

And when I see you still carry it around I smile.

Knowing my time with you was spent worthwhile.
