Nina Nastasia – Afterwards Lyrics

[Nina Nastasia – Afterwards Lyrics]

Now you’re dead and gone
No loneliness just on my own

Sometimes you walk into my room
and sit and brood until I fall asleep

Love is tiresome when you’re older
Grief and madness make you colder

You still won’t let anyone but you hold on to me until it’s hard to breathe
Breathe
Leave me

First tell me how to live
you were the only one I gave all of myself
I love you more now than I could
I’ve thrown away the flaws

Death renders you when you’re underneath the earth
It makes me wonder about the years that came before
and all those things I feel I must ignore
Breathe
Keep me

Please let me be
how I want to be
I see you there looking straight in me
judging me
loving me

what I feel
what I think
what I want to give
Oh how I want to live

what I feel
what I think
what I want to give
Oh how I want to live

I want to live
I am ready to live
