Cardiff Afterlife

If the love between us has faded away
Left in the rain, Scratching at the stains
The paralysed future
The past sideways scrawl
I must give up on this
It makes no sense at all
Makes no sense at all

In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff afterlife
We sense the breaking of our lives
In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff afterlife

And yet I kept my silence
Your memory is still mine
No I will not share them
Acquaintance through denial

For I witnessed splendour
And evil that no-one saw
And I felt kindness
And vanity for sure
And vanity for sure

In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff afterlife
We sensed the breaking of our lives
In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff afterlife

In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff afterlife
We sensed the making of our lives
In the Cardiff afterlife
In the Cardiff

oh yes!!! And this song so accurately describes how I've felt since leaving Cardiff! Plus manics are brilliant ;)

You're welcome! :) I was reading the first few lines and thinking... wow, this is some astonishing poetry... no, wait a tick, I know this... ah!!! It's great when places one loves are immortalised in great song though, isn't it?

thank you for doing that :) I totally forgot to put that in :D

For people who don't recognise the song, the lyrics come from "Cardiff Afterlife" by the band Manic Street Preachers. Wonderful lyrics they are too :)
