After All This Time Lyrics 

There were trains - And we out-run 'em
There were songs - And we out-sung 'em
There were brighter days - never ending
There was time - And we were burnin'
There were rhymes - And we were learnin'
There was all the love - two hearts could hold

And after all this time - You're always on my mind
Hey I could never let it end - 'Cause my heart takes so long to mend
The dream that keeps your hopes alive - The lonely nights you hold inside
And after all this time - You're always on my mind - I still want you

There was rain - That we outlasted
There was pain - But we got past it
There were last goodbyes - still left unspoken
There were ways I should have thrilled you
There were days I could have killed you
You're the only love - my life has known

And after all this time - You're always on my mind
Hey I could never let you go - A broken heart that heals so slow
Could never beat for someone new - While you're alive and I am too
And after all this time - You're always on my mind - I still miss you

And I could never let it in - 'Cause my heart takes so long to mend
The dream that keeps your hopes alive - The lonely nights you hold inside
And after all this time - You're always on my mind - I still want you
Hey after all this time - You're always on my mind - I still love you
