After the Fact

It was always myself
Alone, against the world
'Til you came along
And changed everything
And then you went away
After you'd finished your job
Leaving me alone against this world again
By myself.
And you just gave me a kiss on the cheek
And started walking away
After all that's been done and said
But then you stopped
And my heart soared and fell
You smiled and waved
And then continued on your way.
