Jane Bach: Music

AFTER ALL

(DEMO)
AFTER ALL
JANE BACH / MARY ANN BERNICKY


ON A COLD NOVEMBER GRAY WINTER MORNING
AT A CHURCH OUTSIDE OF TOWN
A FRIGHTENED CHILD GIVES UP HER CHILD
WITH NO ONE ELSE AROUND
TUCKS A PICTURE IN THE BLANKET.......LAYS HER BABY DOWN WITH LOVE
WITH A TENDER GOODBYE KISS....GIVES HER ONE LAST LOVING TOUCH
SHE NEVER STOPPED THINKING BOUT THE SWEET BABY GIRL
SHE LEFT AT THAT COUNTRY CHURCH
18 YEARS AND A MILLION TEARS LATER
STILL DIDN'T HEAL THE HURT
YEAH EVEN THO SHE HAD TO LET HER GO......SHE HELD HER IN HER DREAMS
AND AT THE ALTER OF FORGIVENESS.........SHE BEGGED TO BE SET FREE.....

PRAYERS SAID IN THE DARK
SHE THOUGHT THEY WENT UNHEARD
BUT HE SAW INSIDE HER HEART...... EMBRACING EVERY WORD
SHE'S ASKING FOR A MIRACLE.......AND FAITH WON'T LET HER FALL
CAUSE SHE BELIEVES HE LISTENS
AFTER ALL

THAT ABANDONED LONELY LITTLE BABY GREW UP
AT THE GUARDIAN ANGEL HOME
A FADED WORN OUT PHOTOGRAPH
WAS ALL SHE HAD TO CALL HER OWN
EVERY NIGHT SHE'D GET DOWN ON HER KNEES.........CLOSE HER EYES AND PRAY
THAT THE STRANGER IN THE PICTURE..........WOULD COME FOR HER SOMEDAY

(CHORUS)

ONE FATEFUL SUNDAY SHE DRIVES OUT TO
THAT OLD COUNTRY CHURCH
WHERE SHE LEFT A PART OF HER HEART A LIFETIME BEFORE
AND THERE'S A PICTURE OF HER YOUNGER SELF POSTED ON THE DOOR.....IT READ
DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS WOMAN.....SHE'S THE MOTHER I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR

PRAYERS SAID IN THE DARK
SHE THOUGHT THEY WENT UNHEARD
BUT HE SAW INSIDE HER HEAR EMBRACING EVERY WORD
SHE WAS ASKING FOR A MIRACLE AND FAITH WON'T LET HER FALL
CAUSE SHE BELIEVES HE LISTENS
SHE BELIEVES HE LISTENS
AFTER ALL
