Paul Gross – After The War lyrics

After the guns are silent
And after my wounds have healed
And after all these crosses
Have been planted in all these fields
And after that long boat ride
All the way across the sea
And after this train carries me
I will love you after the war
Love you for always and forever more
I will love you after the war
For always forever and more
After my boots dry
And my tobacco's all but gone
And after these postcards I been carrying
Under my arm
And after I remember
All the words I couldn't say
And after this long night fades away
And after this blackbird
Lifts up from off my chest
And after my soul takes it's rest
My love, forgive me
I never planned to die
And love, put two pennies on my eyes
