Song for Johnny Cash

After the Fall
(Inspired by the Man in Black)

everyone who dies is me dying
everyone who lives ain't buying at all
not after the fall
no sir, not at all
everyone who cries is me crying
everyone who cries just has a ball
after the fall
after the fall

(chorus)
how far can we fall, completely
how far can we fall in the sky?
what is there to hold
when everything is cold
everything except your eyes

every time I see you I am wasted
every time I see you I do crawl
not after the fall
no sir, not at all
somehow conversation makes a wrong turn
somehow chaos gets us all
after the fall
after the fall

(chorus)
how far can we fall, completely
how far can we fall in the sky?
what is there to hold
when everything is cold
everything except your eyes

someone who has kissed you loves you darling
someone who has kissed you when you called
not after the fall
no sir, not at all
i tried to hold you in my arms forever
i tried to hold you forever in my thrall
i lost it all
after the fall
after all
after the fall

everyone who dies is me dying
everyone who lives ain't buying at all
not after the fall
not after the fall
no sir, not at all
everyone who cries is me crying
everyone who cries just has a ball
after the fall
after the fall

(chorus)
how far can we fall, completely
how far can we fall in the sky?
what is there to hold
when everything is cold
everything except your eyes
