after all these years lyrics – isla grant

believe me darling, i’m just a man
but if i could be your everything
you know i would
and if you were only crying tears
my kiss could drive away
i’d gently wipe them from your eyes
tell you everything’s ok

but after all these years there lingers still
an emptiness i cannot fill

after all these years
after all these years

i realize my love, you’re just a woman
for you’re not the treasure
nor a precious jewel
there swims deep longing in my soul
this ocean has no floor
it’s not your voice that drowns,
it’s the knocking at my door

after all these years there lingers still
the emptiness you cannot fill

please realize my love, i’m just a man
yet if i could be your everything
you know i would
this picture-puzzle love
we share is yet to be complete
we drink of love yet thirst again;
the taste is bittersweet

and after all these years there lingers still
an emptiness only he and he alone can fill

after all these years
after all these years
