Afterlife

Verse 1

Afterlife, oh my God, what an awful word
After all the breath, and the dirt, and the fires are burnt
And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
Of the afterglow
I've gotta know

Chorus

Can we work it out?
We scream and shout till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
Scream and shout till we work it out?
Till we work it out, till we work it out
Till we work it out, till we work it out

Verse 2

Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
Oh, it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window
Or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
And after all this time
It's like nothing else we used to know
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
Of the afterglow
I've gotta know

Chorus

Can we work it out?
We scream and shout till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
We scream and shout till we work it out?

Bridge

But you say, oh
When love is gone
Where does it go?
And you say, oh
When love is gone
Where does it go?
And where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

Verse 3

And after this
Can we last another night?
After all the bad advice
Had nothing at all to do with life
I've gotta know

Chorus

Can we work it out?
We scream and shout till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
Scream and shout till we work it out?

Bridge

But you say, oh
When love is gone
Where does it go?
And you say, oh
When love is gone
Where does it go?
Oh, we know it's gone, but where did it go?
Oh, we know it's gone, but where did it go?
And where do we go?

Break

Oh, oo oo oo, oo oo oo
Oh, oo oo oo, oo oo oo

Outro

Is this the afterlife?
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife
