After This
Music by Jerry Careaga
Lyrics by Jerry Careaga & Stephanie Gladhart

Verse
they say confession is good for the soul
not so much for the heart, mine's shot full of holes
there's blood all over like a bad crime scene
and we're gone too soon like young James Dean

I'll spare you the details, forget the names
I'm the smoking gun I gotta live with that shame
a cheap motel down a dead end road
and an endless regret if the truth be told

Chorus
nothings gonna matter after this
not the date, not the weather, not a stolen kiss
nothing I can do, can't be undid
not the lies not the cheating I can't keep hid
and everything I love I'm gonna miss after this

Verse
I've been a back room player, a junkyard dog
gotta pay for my sins now lost in this fog
I used to have you, you hung my moon
and this long dark night can't end too soon

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
nothing you said or did was ever wrong
nothing I do or say can make it right

Verse Solo
There's blood all over like a bad crime scene
yeah we died too soon like young james dean

Repeat Chorus
nothings gonna matter after this
not the date, not the weather, not a stolen kiss
nothing I can do can't be undid
not the lies not the cheating I can't keep hid
and everything I love I'm gonna miss
everything I love I'm gonna miss
yeah everything I love I'm gonna miss
after this, after this, after this, after this
