After They’re Gone

This is a story I owe you
’bout light and laughter
after they’re gone
you will realize
there are much more happy songs
you can sing along

This is a story I owe you
’bout home and shelter
after they’re gone
you will realize
the night is no harm
with the lights on

They’ll leave your mind forever
just wait and see
after they’re gone
you will realize
that the story of that song
turns into one you’ll sing along

ooohhh ooohhhh
ooh ooh

And I’ll hold you for all times
or at least for a little while
‘til all of them are gone

ooohhh ooohhhh
ooh ooh

And when the story is over
you’ll be asleep
and I will realize
that the beat of your heart
is the heart of that song
