Cat Power – After It All lyrics

After it all
When it's said and done
Will you come back to me
And tell me that
It never was up to you or up to me

When you stand up so tall
With your back to me agains the wall
And make demands with your angry hands
You say you're sorry that you
Didn't mean to scream you say
You're back again that you still love me
And that ya never meant what you said to me
Should I believe what you're telling me

To wait for you
Was all I could do
To have you back with me so peacefully
You broke your back
You left your scratch
Then you came back to me
Just to get some sleep

After it all when it's all said and done
Will you come back to me and tell me that
It never was up to you or up to me
