Ever After Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Now that you're gone nothing is wrong
But everything's changed
Words in your hand do I set them in stone
Or throw them away

Now everything we did
Like photographs that always moved
(And that wasn't strange)
Now they're in the can
Let's put them on a shelf
Let's put them in the ground
They'll never move again

Ever after
Ever after
Ever after

Over and done all of the fun and all of the pain
Why don't I laugh?
Why don't I cry?
It ends up all the same

Now that you're gone everything is wrong
Though nothing has changed
And everything we said is there on a tape
For the future to play
Let's put it in the ground
That's where it ought to stay

Ever after
Ever after
Ever after
And it'll be all right
