Somewhere In The Afterglow

This song is by Diesel Park West and appears on the album Decency (1991).

Yeah, the songbird sings a sweet tune
I'm standing at St. Anne's Corner waiting for you
I'm through with dreaming
And drapes of Flemish lace
I took all that could be expected
Of a man my age
The law it wears a flimsy crown
Naked when it's mass slips down
Who've they caught in the honey jar now
Some paragon on the wrong side of town, I bet you

Somewhere in the afterglow
We'll put this world to rights
Just you and I and the lovers' tale
If nothing can stop us now

I sometimes look at photographs
There I am standing in the past
Looking for the knife at my back
Tell who was it I was thinking of, babe?
Did they have a face at all?

Now, somewhere in the afterglow
We'll put this world to rights
Just you and I and the lovers' tale
If nothing can stop us now

Not even hurricanes or flash lightning
Nor fair-weather friends could reach us here
No ills or sorrow or worrying about tomorrow
Nobody's act we've got to follow
I've never felt so alive

I've read about the books they wrote
Usually somebody else's quote
Can't even laugh at their own jokes
Tell me what do they imagine's happening

Somewhere in the afterglow
We'll put this world to the rights
Just you and I and the things we know
They're ours for all time

Somewhere in the afterglow
We'll take comfort in the night
Yeah, you and I and the lovers' tale
If nothing can stop, that's right

Now, somewhere in the afterglow
We'll put this world to rights
Just you and I and the human tale
There's no one to stop us now
