After the War

The smoke has cleared

Sit alone with a beer  

And run through the rubble

Months of trouble and the end

The tears on your face

The site of you walking away

And the memories dropping

Ring like bombs in my head

 

And I don't know

If I could’ve done more

I don't know

If it was my fault or yours

So I’m still fighting

After the war

 

And the only light

Is just my phone in the night

Could start the war again

Pull the trigger press send and go

Catch your plane before sunset

Kneel down and say come back

Say baby I was wrong

I need you home

 

But I don't know

If I love you anymore

And I don't know

If I loved you before

So I’m still fighting

After the war

 

There should be parties in the streets

We had our victory

But loneliness had been waiting

For you to leave to ambush me

 

I don’t know

If I can take it on my own

And I don’t know

If I wanna try to love anymore

 

But I’ll keep fighting (x2)

I’m still fighting

This damn war
