AFTER FIVE YEARS (Robert J. Purvis)

After all this time together

I can't believe that you're gone

After all this time

After five years


Now my life just feels so empty

I find it hard to go on

After all this time

After five years


CHORUS:

Oh it's been so long, why can't we make it up?

Every passing day just leaves me cold

I've tried very hard but that's not hard enough


Never thought you'd ever leave me

But things just happen that way

After all this time

After five years


[slide guitars solo]


repeat CHORUS


Never thought you'd ever leave me

But things just happen that way

After all this time

After five years

After five years.
