After All

Album: You're Not Leaving Here Tonight (1983)

  • There's a parking lot where the corner cafe stood

    One of the places we first fell in love

    They've built a waterslide on the bluff by the riverside

    Where we first fumbled our way into love

    And you hardly ever hear it it's a golden oldie now

    But you and I danced to it at least a thousand miles

    We ran with Bobby and his wife her name I can't recall

    We had lots of fun and love hardly anything else at all

    The things we knew are turning brown and gray with age or gone

    It's funny how the years slip by I can't help but wonder why

    Sometimes it doesn't seem that long

    After all these years after all the joys and tears

    After all is said and done after most of everything we knew is gone

    I still love you

    [ guitar ]

    After all these years...

    After all
