Afterglow

by Lovelast

about

“Afterglow” is about disintegration. it's about seeing the unraveling of a love, of a relationship, of a person you care deeply about — and yet, in the middle of that, also remembering why it was so special to you. maybe you can't stop the unraveling; maybe it's gone too far. but you can still hold onto the memory of the happiness, the moments when the stress and pain wasn’t so overwhelming. even if it all falls apart, there's still something beautiful to cling to — something waiting for you in the afterglow.

lyrics

I could make you happy
But you’re running down the time
And I make you crazy
But I want to be your alibi

And we unraveled from the start
You broke my will and I broke your heart, but I
I never thought you’d let go
Could you meet me in the dark
Beneath the mid-December stars?
I’m waiting in the afterglow

And so, let’s get lost in light
And for a moment we can forget the firefight
Hands and heart take flight
Here in this heaven everything will be alright
Pull me to you tight
If we can’t make it to forever, I’ll take tonight
Press your bones to mine
Cause I am yours for the last time

And if could retract
All the words I should’ve said
Would it bring your love back?
Would it get you out of my head?

But I let this turn to stone
On the pavement of a London road
Where you held me
And I can’t let go
And you kissed me in the dark
Beneath the mid-December stars
I’m escaping to the afterglow

And so, let’s get lost in light
And for a moment we can forget the firefight
Hands and heart take flight
Here in this heaven everything will be alright
Pull me to you tight
If we can’t make it to forever, I’ll take tonight
Press your bones to mine
Cause I am yours for the last time

And I still dream about you
And the hollow that’s inside
Is the wish that I could hold you
Underneath the winter sky
One more time

Yours for the last time
Yours for the last time
Yours for the last time
