Afterlife (Album Version)

Afterlife (Album Version)

Todd Rundgren

They say I don't think enough
About the afterlife
Of what's below and above
It's all in black and white
They say there's only one kind of love
You have to choose just right
They say there's ony one kind of love

In the afterlife
Kiss it all goodbye
In the afterlife
You don't get another try

But I can't see, I don't know how
That I won't be what I am now, no
Even in my afterlife
And I won't have some other heart
That could find peace though we're apart, no
Even in my afterlife

It's not enough anymore
To be good in this life
They say you've got to be sure
So you can sleep at night
The only love that endures
Gives up without a fight
The only love that endures

In the afterlife
Kiss it all goodbye
In the afterlife
It was just a clever lie

If I could never see your face
Then I would have to fall from grace, I know
Even in my afterlife
Or for eternity be blind
To your presence in my mind, no
Even in my afterlife

And they could promise me a seat
At the right side of the throne
But all would still be incomplete
Within the holy host, alone
Without the guiding light so sweet
That has forever led me on
For me there's no eternal rest
You and I have unfinished business
Yes, yes

Even in my afterlife
If I could still hold one thought clear
Then you will instantly appear, I know
Even in my afterlife

But I can't see, I don't know how
That I won't be what I am now, no
Even in my afterlife
And I won't have some other heart
That could find peace though we're apart, no
Even in my afterlife

For I could not repose in bliss
Nevermore to know your kiss
No, no
