I'm ten miles from town
And I just broke down
Spittin' out smoke
On the side of the road
I'm out here alone
Just trying to get home
To tell you I was wrong
But you already know
Believe me I won't stop for nothin'
To see you so I've started runnin'

All that I'm after
Is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
And I'm thinkin' that
All that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

The last time we talked
The night that I walked
Burns like an iron
In the back of my mind
I must've been high
To say you and I
Weren't meant to be
And just wasting my time
Oh, why did I ever doubt you?
You know I would die here without you

All that I'm after
Is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
And I'm thinkin' that
All that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

You and I, right or wrong
There's no other one
After this time spent on
It's hard to believe
That a man with sight could be so blind
Thinkin' 'bout the better times
Must've been out of my mind
So I'm runnin' back to tell you

All that I'm after
Is a life full of laughter
Without ya God knows what I'd do, yeah

All that I'm after
Is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
And I'm thinkin' that
All that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we've been through, yeah
I know there's no life after you

You know there's no life after you
You know there's no life after you
You know there's no life after you
You know there's no life after you
Yeah

    She dumped me 3 days ago and told me she fell inlove with someone else. After a few days, she posted on her wall (life after you). But aren't sure if the song is for me or for her new someone else... I'm confused.

    After a realization, he comes back to the one he loves - he knows he will regret this his whole life if he loses her
