Music Video: "The Afterglow" by Silverstein



I can see the sunset just outside of your bedroom,
I know itʼs too soon to let it go.
Everything you said, echoing in my head...

Streetlights swaying in the wind at night,
the freewayʼs feeling like paradise.
No, time wonʼt change it. Canʼt erase it.

Itʼs a long drive home we can pass the time.
By counting all the stars and the satellites.
No, time wonʼt change it. Canʼt erase it.

I wanted you to know...

I can see the sunset just outside of your bedroom,
I know itʼs too soon to let it go.
Everything you said, echoing in my head,
into the afterglow.

I remember that night, like it was the first time.
Two of us caught in the undertow.
Everything you said, echoing in my head,
back and forth into the afterglow.

I took a beating last time we talked.
Still adding up the cost of the cheap shots.
Time wonʼt change it. Canʼt erase it.

Now Iʼm carving our names in the table top,
heartbreak in a St. Louis parking lot.
Time wonʼt change it. Canʼt erase it.

I donʼt want you back,
itʼs just that I wanted you to know.
You still run through my head
but Iʼm alright alone.
