Afterwards

Hey everybody can you dance can you spin
can you close your eyes and see the light
Feelings come and feelings go and now I don’t know what I’m hearing,
what I’m supposed to do.
Yesterday you came to me and gave me hope and filled my weakness
with the words that I could grasp
Now I don’t have anyone to talk to and I don’t know how to pray
or what to say or what to do.

Why is there nobody singing here
Yesterday I could barely hear the thoughts inside my head
is spinning
This is not what I thought it would be

Hello my friend is there anything that I can do for you
I know that you’re so alone
Crawling over hillsides crawling left and crawling right
but never finding any pathways to the top
Fading memories of situations past and wondering if anything can last
I can see the summit from the bottom but I need someone to hold me
to help me through the rain

Why is there nobody singing here
Yesterday I could barely hear the thoughts inside my head
is spinning
This is not what I thought it would be

Gone away, gone awry. Will this season ever end
and will the confusion, cease to bend me
Afterwards is always, something different...

Why is there nobody singing here
Yesterday I could barely hear the thoughts inside my head
is spinning
This is not what I thought it would be...
