Aftermath

lyrics

In this life believe in who you are, what you are and what you bring,
But if I’m honest with myself i must admit it was never worth anything,
To say no to reason, held back the season, lost out to our own collusion,
There's no time to believe in what i could be,
To believe in me.
 
You'll find me in the aftermath with my head held high,
While all the memories burn ablaze in a fire that consumed our very thoughts.
You'll find me in the aftermath when all is said and done,
With realization of a truth that some will love and not be one.
 
On this night take a bow, take applause, tell me how I fall,
And if you're honest with yourself, you must admit there is confusion, in your head,
Oh now gone are the days with the kid living in the summer haze,
Dreaming all is right,
Gone are the hopes and the dreams,
Everything you'd ever seen in me.
 
You'll find me in the aftermath with my head held high,
While all the memories burn ablaze in a fire that consumed our very thoughts.
You'll find me in the aftermath when all is said and done,
With realization of a truth that some will love and not be one.
 
There is some water in my eyes,
There is some water in my eyes,
Wont you dry the water in my eyes,
Won't you stop the water in my eyes.
 
You'll find me in the aftermath with my head held high,
While all the memories burn ablaze in a fire that consumed our very thoughts.
You'll find me in the aftermath when all is said and done,
With realization of a truth that some will love and not be one.
