V1
Iíve been needing you
Missing you
Never can have you
I need to let go
But I canít do it so
How can I open up my heart
And get through

PRECHORUS
Loving you was easy
But I tried too hard
Milked you of all your patience
So much for letting it tear me apart

CHORUS
So much for the afterglow
The push and pull
The successes and the woes
itís enough that Iím a mess
I tried to shine
But the flame died at your expense
So much for the afterglow

V2
Iíve been trying hard
Going too far
You lost your patience for me
I gotta strive to live
But I canít pretend
To not cry
Seeing you at your wits end

PRECHORUS
Loving you was easy
But I tried too hard
Milked you of all your patience
So much for letting it tear me apart

CHORUS
So much for the afterglow
The push and pull
The successes and the woes
itís enough that Iím a mess
I tried to shine
But the flame died at your expense
So much for the afterglow

BRIDGE
I canít stand
Canít stand
Canít stand the irony
Of you letting me slide
And then having me feel
The glow of harmony
One last smile on your face
Is it fake or real
hate to love love to hate
Dearest whatís the deal?
Mixed messages
no friend no foe
So much for the afterglow

CHORUS X2
So much for the afterglow
The push and pull
The successes and the woes
itís enough that Iím a mess
I tried to shine
But the flame died at your expense
So much for the afterglow

So much for the afterglow
The push and pull
The successes and the woes
itís enough that Iím a mess
I tried to shine
But the flame died at your expense
So much for the afterglow

REPEAT V1
Iíve been needing you
Missing you
Never can have you
I need to let go
But I canít do it so
How can I open up my heart
And get through.
