AFTERGLOW
Music/Lyrics by Ian and Chad

Take your headphones off little girl
Listen to the sounds of the world
Put your heart into it.
It’s all intuitive.

Paint a picture black and white
Write a book about the meaning of life
You gotta use what you’ve been given
To change the world you’re livin’ in.

What would you do with all the answers?
What would you do if you’re the only one?

Annie dreams of others when she’s wide awake
Wishing on the beauty that they hide away
And if someday you slip away from all the souls that you’ve saved,
I promise I’ll find you in the afterglow.

Staring out the window,
Seeing the streetlights pass you by
In the reflections in your eyes,
Your thoughts collide.

It’s more than coincidence.
Believe in it ever since,
You know, “the times they are a changin’’
all that’s happened in the past.

What would you do with all the answers?
What would you do if you’re the only one?

Annie dreams of others when she’s wide awake
Wishing on the beauty that they hide away
And if someday you slip away from all the souls that you’ve saved,
I promise I’ll find you in the afterglow.
I promise I’ll find you in the afterglow.
