After tonight,
But before our fears
Gain the strength to overtake us
And sever the silver strand of affection
That forever ties our hearts together

After the day when we finally
Stop pretending
That everything is normal between us
When a lifetime’s worth of rising action
Says differently
But before we’re bound by consequence

After temptation
Draws my hands to rosy cheeks
And guides your eyes to mine once more
But before the questions raised in the afterglow

After I take your hand
Lean in and whisper
In your left ear
That I love you, and always have
Because the world will end
Before you say that you love me too.
