After You

December 31, 2012

After you left me
I couldn’t find me
After you left me
I was lost

So many faces
All around me
I don’t recognize
Any of them

After you said it
After it came out
There was no reason
For you to stay

But after you left me
After I cried
I found a reason
To carry on

And since you’ve gone away, baby, I am stronger
I don’t cry into my bottle anymore
And since you’ve left me, I am invincible
I don’t let nobody in to hurt me
After you left me
After you left me

After you left me
I grew wiser
After you left me
I grew up

Nobody tells me
How to live my life
Nobody tells me
What I should do

And since you’ve been gone
I don’t feel wrong
No, I don’t question
The way I did before

Baby, since you left me
My world is larger
I can do anything
That comes my way

And since you’ve gone away, baby, I am stronger
I don’t cry into my bottle anymore
And since you’ve left me, I am invincible
I don’t let nobody in to hurt me
After you left me
