After You've Gone

After you've gone

You're just a mile away One thousand five tiny steps from here But if I brought you near Would you believe when I say, It seems like yesterday That I could reach out and touch your face, But as I fall from grace Into whose arms can I lay

It's always much too late We get the signs We can't communicate Or turn back time

So what will be now, do you feel somehow Not so together and not quite as strong Now I believe Alone doesn't have to mean lonely, after you've gone

If it's a healing wind That cools the flame burning in my sight It must accelerate For two wrongs they don't make a right

And all these solitaires, lone victories Wars fought in isolation, with none to please

The future's still uncertain, the past is done
