After love After love After love After love

No matter (it isn’t important) how hard I try
You keep pushing me aside (away)
And I can´t break through
There´s no talking to you
So sad that you´re leaving (going away)
It takes time to believe it
But after all is said and done (we said and did)
You´re gonna (you will) be the lonely one (person)

Do you believe in life after love?
I can feel something inside me say
I really don´t think you´re strong enough, no
Do you believe in life after love?
I can feel something inside me say
I really don´t think you´re strong enough, no

What am I supposed (must) to do?
Sit around and wait for you
Well I can´t do that
There´s no turning back
I need time to move on (continue)
I need love to feel strong
Because I´ve got time to think it through
And maybe I´m too good for you, oh

Well I know that I´ll get through this
Because I know that I am strong
I don´t need you anymore (more)
I don´t need you anymore
I don´t need you anymore
No I don´t need you anymore
