After the Years
(Music and lyrics--Patrick Burke)

After the years past the worry and the fear
I seem to feel
That I'm more than halfway home
I'll tell you true I'm depending now on you
You may not know but I'm feeling so alone

From the heaven of your care
To the badlands of despair
I will hear your echo there after the years
I have lost and I have won
But I could never have begun
To imagine what has come after the years

After the years they are playing on our fears
These awful men
And the strange thing's they believe
Push comes to shove of they will never get enough of what they want
Just to satisfy their greed

In the things that they have tried
And the fictions that they hide
Now our world is growing tired after the years
When we open up our eyes
Enough to see through all their lies
Will we cut them down to size after the years

One cross to bear one more waiting in the air
I simply can't find a way to get back home
I'll tell you true I'm depending now on you
You may not know but I'm feeling so alone

I have lost and I have won
But I could never have begun
To imagine where we've gone after the years
From the secrets that we know to the feelings we can't show
I would never let you go after the years
