After All
After All

by Tim Lake

I knew you’d let him down easily
Breezily, that’s what I hoped to see
You won’t have to tell him when he calls
You see the poets on the phone just to sing

Old songs and new songs a contemporary tune
To hide the hole down in his soul
(hope we'll never know)
You’ll be there to hold him when he calls
We both know how much you love him
After all
(But can you place someone above him after all?)

I’ll be there to find you some secret afternoon
No you won’t have to tell me how you feel
Cause the time that we’ve been loosing is all gone
So let’s take one more moment just to sing

Repeat Chorus:
