After You're Gone

The world comes crashing down tonight
And the fire will burn till morning light
The warning sounds
Are screeching aloud
I do not know what to do
Since I am lonely without you
But I will have to go on
Even after you’re gone
You said goodbye too many times
I guess I should have read the signs
The water will make a flood
Covering me in mud
My love I will always give
All the years that I live
But I will have to go on
Even after you’re gone
Will the fire be ashes?
Will I be covered with rashes?
I know you more
Then anything before
My thoughts will be burned
Like all the lessons learned
But I will have to go on
In forever, after you’re gone
