NUR EIN! After You Lyrics

Postby BenKrieger » Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:45 am

No one's started this yet? Ok, I will...

After You
By Zed Dead Baby

He’s got those songs
You’d kill to know you’d written
My words are shit
My melodies are thin

But just today
My writer’s muse was bitten
So open mike director
Don’t put me after him

I don’t wanna go
After you, Mo
I’ve gotta new number
But I think it might blow
If I had to go after you Mo
Well I would cry, cry cry cry cry
So I’ll wait a couple turns

I’ve got a rep:
The country Salieri
He’s got a rep:
The Mo-zart of the Mike

My girl left
My heart’s a lonely prairie
And there she sits
Her arms around him tight

I don’t wanna go
After you, Mo
I’ve gotta new number
But I think it might blow
If I had to go after you Mo
Well I would cry, cry cry cry cry
So I’ll wait a couple turns

After you there’ll be no fast food
After you no more video games
After you no more depression
After you no more stagnation

After you no more hopelessness
After you no more suicide talk
After you no more pausing of my life
After you no more despairing lifestyle.

But for now let’s eat burgers,
Pet my hair while we game all night
You are so relatable
I could talk all night, all night

Sorry. After you.
Because Zombie Requiem, that's why.

AFTER YOU - inflatable vegetables

Seems I'm always chasing after you, after you

Flowing trench coat, bowler hat
Pouting scarlet lips
Footsteps echo off the steel
Stalking thru the shipyard shadows
I just had to follow

(Chorus)
After you
I'm forever chasing after you
Forever chasing chasing after you
After you, after you

Hacking e-mail, tailing cabs
Cameras stuck in trees
Empty railway - cross the tracks
Climb thru box cars fearing foul play
Peering from the doorway

Seems I'm always chasing after you, after you

If you choose a dead end trap
I turn aside and linger
If I'm late, you sit and wait
So you never slip thru my fingers

CH +
If you turn and talk to me, you destroy our fantasy

CH +
Seems I'm always chasing after you, after you

After You

It's late, I know
You don't like the cold
So, I will hold the door and go in after you

And, truth be told
I have gotten old
Time: Just where does it go?
Why can't it be renewed?

I was used to going first
There's things you can't rehearse
'Cause this life comes without a test run
And no questions are observed

Back when we met (We met and my life was changed)
I'd take extra steps (I'm sure you thought that I was strange)
Taking the long way around (And you'd be right, but it remains)
And, I'd be after you (There's no one after you)

You'd smile at me (You'd smile and I would just melt)
and my heart felt free (A puddle of my former self)
Friends said it was meant to be (I know that I required help)
That turned out to be true (There's no one after you)

I was used to going first
There's things you can't rehearse
'Cause this life comes without a test run
And no questions are observed

Love is imperfect
People get hurt
It's not blue skies and butterflies
but it's often worth the work

It's late, I know
It's almost time to go
Near the end of the show
It's sad but, it's still true

So, now I'm sure (Still, I'm not sure how this sounds)
It's not what I'd prefer (I plan on keeping you around)
But you asked nice a time or two (Don't you get in a hurry now)
So, I'll go after you (But I'll go after you)

[When all is said and done and we have reached the end]
[We had a real good run through all the curves and bends]
[I couldn't make this up if I would just pretend]
[I will go after you]

After You - Pigfarmer Jr

I remember a lonely time
Weak and unsure
A complete lack of courage
Often insecure
Scared and indecisive
With a shaking voice
Fading into static
Drowning in the noise

But after you winked at me
after you smiled
after you kissed me
after we cried
After you showed me who I really was
I am a different man
I am a stronger man
I am a better man after you

Before meeting you
I felt scared and alone
Defensive by nature
Happy on my own
Somehow you found me
Gave me strength to go on
Now I walk with courage
No longer withdrawn

After you winked at me
After you smiled
After you kissed me
After we cried
After you showed me who I really was
I am a different man
I am a stronger man
I am a better man after you

Stepping in the batter's box
Ready to swing
Standing on center stage
Ready to sing
Entering the meeting room
Whenever I'm late
Approaching your front door
For our next date

After you winked at me
After you smiled
After you kissed me
After we cried
After you showed me who I really was
I am a different man
I am a stronger man
I am a better man after you

I am a different man -(I am fierce, I am strong, I'll make a stand)
I am a stronger man -(Courageous, confident, not made of sand)
I am a better man after you -(Persistent, tenacious, I am a man after you)

AFTER YOU
Micah Sommersmith

You tell me
I can go to hell kindly
or else I might as well retreat
into whatever shell I crawled out of
I know it's true you hate
me and wish that I would die, but wait
till we're standing at those fiery gates
I'll step aside and smile and with a shove say
"After you."
(You tell me) If I have to go to hell I guess that
(I can go to hell kindly) I'll stuff you into my handbasket
(I guess I might as well, but please) no it just wouldn't be right to deprive you
(won't you come along, in fact I must insist, please, after you.) of this chance, so after you.

[You tell me] (If I have to go to hell I guess that)
[I can go to hell kindly] (I'll stuff you into my handbasket) After you,
[or else I might as well retreat] (no it just wouldn't be right to deprive you) although I know
[into whatever shell I crawled out of, I know it's true:] (of this chance, although it's true:) it's true:

You hate (I know you hate me)
me and wish that I would die
but wait (but just you wait till)
till we're standing at those fie-
ry gates (we're standing at those gates)
I'll step aside and smile and with a shove say (I'll step aside and with a shove say)
"After you."

After You - Paco del Stinko

After you ma'am I must insist, the door is open you can't resist
Please step inside I'll come next, manners decree that politeness is best

They say age before beauty, which means that you go first
I feel it's my duty, I'm sure that you're well versed

After You
After you


Hey - we're waiting, you're holding up the plane
Stop that bickererering you're making us insane

After you (we're waiting)
After you


Someone's got to go first (someone goes first)
And then the next one follows suit (they follow suit)
If you can't get moving at all (moving at all)
We're gonna give you the boot (give you the boot)

After you ma'am I must insist, the door is open you can't resist
Please step inside I'll come next, manners decree that politeness is best (X's 3)

They say age before beauty, which means that you go first
I feel it's my duty, I'm sure that you're well versed (x's 2)

Hey - we're waiting, you're holding up the plane
Stop that bickererering you're making us insane (x's 1)

After you (we're waiting)
After you (we're waiting)
After you (we're waiting)
After you (we're waiting)

After You by ROTR

well something is broken
the wound has been opened
now nothing is holding me down
i’d rather be lonely
than call you my only
while you think of me as a clown

you call it a a choice but
i don’t have a voice
and your attitude cuts like a knife
but that doesn’t matter
it’s all baby batter
a stain on the blue dress of life

after you - went away
after you - i’m okay
after you i’m feeling better every day
after you - knocked me down
after you - played around
after you there’s gotta be a better way

well i’m losing sleep and
i need some relief from
the scenes playing out in my mind
you treat me so mean
and a recessive gene
seems to bring out the worst of your kind

they call you a winner
they call you survivor
well i don’t know how much is true
the evidence damns you
and no one commands you
to do all the things that you do

after you - went away
after you - i’m okay
after you i’m feeling better every day
after you - knocked me down
after you - played around
after you there’s gotta be a better way
like a shark riding on an elephant's back, trampling and devouring everything in its path

After You
by Jerkatorium

You're gone
You've left, you're moving on
So distant and withdrawn
After you
Went away
I miss you every day
I want you back to stay
After you

Gone already
I'm unsteady
I still need you so
Thinking of you
I still love you
I can't let you go

<Chorus>
First you'll hear my footfalls
Then you'll hear my voice call
After you, after you
When you hear me humming
Then you'll know I'm comming
After you, after you.

Alone
I'm sinking like a stone
and singing monotone
After you
No more
You've settled up the score
You left and slammed the door
After you

I'm just starting
You're departing
Broken-hearted me
You're the queen of
every scene of
all my haunted dreams

<Repeat Chorus 2X>

<Countermelody>
I'll run after you
cuz I want you back now
need you so bad now
Let's write chapter two
cuz I want you back now
need you so bad now

I lose
And now I'm so confused
I understand the blues
After you.

After You
by Cavedwellers

Verse One
Go ahead: life has led you to new beginnings
I will stay just the same as I have been
When you win, you're entitled to your winnings
When you fail, you must take it on the chin.

Chorus One
After you, there is nothing to hold onto, and nobody home
After you! I won't stand in obsolescence like a rotary phone
‘Cause there’s nothing left to do after you.

Verse Two
When I’m dead, I will be a mist of misgivings
I retrained, and explained none of my wants
I’m the wind, I'm the recourse in your dreaming
I'm a wraith, no escape from this last haunt

Chorus Two
Let it go, after brow beating it to death
All I know: it got scary and dangerous
Honestly, what the hell was I thinking?
After you


Chorus Three
After you, there is nothing to hold onto, and nobody home
Let it go, after brow beating it to death
After you! I won't stand in obsolescence like a rotary phone
All I know: it got scary and dangerous
‘Cause there’s nothing left, nothing kept, nothing except
Honestly, timing, climbing, arriving


Chorus Four
After you, there is nothing to hold onto, and nobody home
Let it go, after brow beating it to death
After you! I won't stand in obsolescence like a rotary phone
All I know: it got scary and dangerous
‘Cause there’s nothing left to do after you.
Honestly, what the hell was I thinking?
After you

After You
by
73 KEEP IT BEAUTIFUL


after you
the blackness seemed a little brighter
after you
this crushing weight was slightly lighter
then I knew
I'd met someone much better after you

after you
my shitty world became much kinder
after you
your absence was the best reminder
that it was true
a better person came right after you

and if only the right one had told me
what I had in store
because I was so miserable before

after you
the blackness seemed a little brighter
after you
this crushing weight was slightly lighter
then I knew
I'd met someone much better after you
after you

After You
by Berkeley Social Scene

The wind and the sea
The storm and the shore
We stood in the tempest
Grasping for safety

Before you, an ocean of love
After you, an ocean of blood
The waves will crash over me
but I’m still standing
After you

The salt in my eyes
The stinging of tears
The words on your lips
Composed disregard

Before you, an ocean of love
After you, an ocean of blood
The waves will crash over me
but I’m still standing
After you

Beside you
Inside you
Outside you
Without you

(guitar solo)

A calm in the storm
Brings false relief
Stand on an island
Thinking the worst is over now

Before you, an ocean of love
After you, an ocean of blood
The waves will crash over me
but I’m still standing
After you

Before you, an ocean of love
(Beside you)
After you, an ocean of blood
(Inside you)
The waves will crash over me
(Outside you)
but I’m still standing
(Without you I cannot figure out)
After you
(What to do after you)

(guitar counter-melody)

Before you, an ocean of love
After you, an ocean of blood
The waves will crash over me
but I’m still standing
After you

After You
by Merisan

You slide the chain through the slot
Turn every bolt in it’s lock
And the TV’s so loud that it’s waking the dead
As long as it drowns out the voice in your head

Seen you go through this before
Hesitantly, I wait by your door
Frustrations mount because you’ll never come
I know it’s too late, but I hope I’m wrong

And you disappear in a crowd of phantoms

They’re all around
And I’m right here
I can’t break through
They’re after you, They’re after you

The mail stack is growing like weeds
Unstable towers rise through debris
Your telephone rings right through the thin wall
And footsteps whisper and creak down the hall

Your brother came by Tuesday night
I tried to explain why you’ve dimmed all the lights
My sadness takes over and I’m full of shame
I have the sick feeling I’m part of your game

Like you dressed me up in a trench coat and shades

They’re all around
And I’m right here
I can’t break through
They’re after you, They’re after you

(instrumental counter-melody)

They’re all around
And I’m right here
I can’t break through
They’re after you, They’re after you

After You
by Lichen Throat

After you went to your cottage at night,
I stayed awake in the silver moonlight,
Relived every memory again in my head.
I should have slept, but I daydreamed instead.
After you, after you, I chase after you,
And I’m pretty sure that you chase after me, too.

After you kissed me that day on the moor,
I felt my heart beat like never before.
The breeze was cool, and the sunbeams were hot.
And if you were chasing, I finally was caught.
After you, after you, I lust after you,
And I’m pretty sure that you lust after me, too.

In the summertime,
The priest spoke his words,
The wedding bells chimed,
And our love had fully flowered.

After you gave me a daughter and son,
Though there is always some work to be done,
Every hour with you is still bliss,
And nothing can thrill like your smile and your kiss.
After you, after you, I need nothing more,
And I know for sure you’re the one I’ll always adore.

After You
- strangelove

I still recall the phone call,
When you told me you were going away
And though imbued with sadness,
I had to thank you
And still thank you today

After you opened up my eyes
To a way of life I’d not considered before
After you opened up my eyes

Free from the restrictions
Of the traditional coupled paradigm
Alone but not lonely was your secret
And quality of time

After you opened up my eyes
I had a taste of life I’d not tasted before
After you opened u p my eyes

After you opened up my eyes
To a way of life I’d not considered before
After you opened up my eyes
And I tried
Opened up my eyes
I had a taste of life I’d not tasted before
And I tried

And the experiment was well worthwhile
Though results proved to be inconclusive
Circumstances change as they will do
But it's all good

After you opened up my eyes
To a way of life I’d not considered before
After you opened up my eyes
I had a taste of life I’d not tasted before
Opened up my eyes
And I tried
But it's all good

After You (LW | RG)

I don’t want to know the ghost of you
I don’t want to mourn this love
But the distance between us
Is a light-year inside of me

chorus:
When tomorrow comes, who will come after you (after you)?
When this love fades, who will come after you (after you)?

Subtle changes in the way we touch
The silence grows at night
You haven’t made a single scar
But I fear you’ll soon be gone

When tomorrow comes, who will come after you (after you)?
When this love fades, who will come after you (after you)?

Bridge: (countermelody)
(I don’t want to know the ghost of you)
ahhhhhh
(I don’t want to know the ghost of you)
ahhhhhh
(I don’t want to know the ghost of you)
ahhhhhh
(I don’t want to know the ghost of you)
ahhhhhh
(I don’t want to know the ghost of you)

When tomorrow comes, who will come after you (after you)?
When this love fades, who will come after you (after you)?

Nick Soma - After You

You left your email address
In my basket, I was busking in the streets
Along with what made my heart jump
A note saying you were definitely positively weird
Like me

Being the shy guy I am
I had sunglasses on, and my eyes were closed
So I never ever saw your face
Just that little note I keep upon my bedside table
Still...

Chorus:

(Happily ever after you
Think I'm in love, what can I do?)


I lost my pride
Now I'm just another fool
Pathetic little spark of hope
This dream could still come true
It would have been so cool
Only just us two
I keep asking you to answer me
I tried, now it's on you


Felt like drunk, and I probably was
Can of cheap cerveza given to me by some Spanish guy
But even if not
In that one moment I was full of sunshine,
I was on cloud nine

I appear like a creep, I suppose
Continuously sending love mail, nobody responds
Well, maybe one day, who knows
Your address is valid, 'cause I checked it
Please don't say you set me up


Chorus:

(Happily ever after you
Think I'm in love, what can I do?)


I lost my pride
Now I'm just another fool
Pathetic little spark of hope
This dream could still come true
It would have been so cool
Only just us two
Now I feel like an idiot
Still running after you


We could have traveled the world in my uncle's old van
We would live life to the fullest just to prove that we can
We could still do it, still kiss in the starlight and dream
Hope springs eternal, reality's floating downstream

After You
by Skub

I see you comin' from across the room
You step to me and I will step to you
The wrong foot forward is a grave mistake
My heart is beatin' like an 808


Let me tell you now!

We're gettin' closer and then we lock eyes
I think I'd like to try you on for size
We close the distance to the doors ahead
We reach the threshold and we both stop dead


After you
No, after you
No, after you
You see that we'll be stuck here for eternity
If we can't undo
We can't undo
And so we must repeat
And now your trapped here in absurdity
With me

You plant your feet but I will try once more
Cuz I was raised to always hold a door
Now we'll be stuck forever and a day
"I'll hold the door" is all that I can say


"Hold the door!"

It's getting awkward but I stand my ground
I don't need anybody else around
I'll try my hardest now to be polite:
You'll never know what I am like inside
... if you get me now...


After you
No, after you
After you or never
After you
No, after you
After you for forever

After You (Boffo Yux Dudes)

I always was a gentleman
You were a lady as far as it went
But as we start to dish out our worst
I’m always willing to let you go first

You tell me you wish I were dead
After You
You tell me to go fuck myself
After You
if there’s something that you want me to do
Show don’t tell so I can learn from you

You slandered me hard, I shrugged back harder
I took the high road and looked like a martyr
As you screamed I merely sighed
I kept my cool and kept my pride

I always was a gentleman
You were a lady as far as it went
But now that’s all in the past
You may hit first but I’ll strike last

Balance Lost

Show me a short cut to save time
Everybody's leaving me alone at the start line
I can smell a scent as the wind blows
Something that remains even after you go

Salvation will not be brought to you by a blinding light in your darkest hour
Or force you to prostrate yourself before a needy and jealous will
It will not absolve you of the need to adapt with the passing of time
And that perfection is a gift you were given to squander

What did you see in the lamp light?
Some people understand and some people didn't try
Did you really think you're the end all?
Life still continues even after you fall

We will not expect you to perceive the largest black hole down to the tiniest electron
With senses developed for the purposes of hunting deer
Evolution will put you in the driver's seat
Until the technological singularity arrives and makes us all obsolete

When the gas is released
It lifts me off my feet
When the pinch starts to grip
That's when I know I'm losing it
