Afterlife

Soft light, painting the ground outside an
Old house, miles from town there's a
Dead tree, pointing the way to the
Graveyard where the spirits await

Do you believe in the Afterlife, do you think there's more than this?
I can tell you what I believe, it starts with a kiss
We fly up and away when the body fades
Emptiness is a physical state but we never fade, never fade away

She came into my life, and the
World changed, enter the knife that would
Send me over the edge, and her
Body motionless on the bed

I've seen him racing toward the sun
Reflecting nothing wanting none
of what the youthful eye can see
A shadow chasing after me
As time passes by the light does fade
My life becomes a black crusade
He sees me reaching for the sun
He pulls me back until it's gone
