<br />
The drama&rsquo;s faded and the dust has settled down<br />
And the looting&rsquo;s over and the fires, I guess they&rsquo;re finally out<br />
And life goes on and on and on, though slightly shaken<br />
No more urgency or screaming, or things breaking<br />
<br />
And we&rsquo;ve been here before, bracing ourselves in the doorways<br />
For the AFTERSHOCKS . . . they&rsquo;ll get you every time<br />
The AFTERSHOCKS. . . just when you think you&rsquo;re fine<br />
<br />
The ocean doesn&rsquo;t seem to mind <br />
And the sky still looks the same, if a little gray<br />
So I&rsquo;ll just drink this rescued wine<br />
And wonder why I came, anyway<br />
<br />
And we&rsquo;ve been here before, standing scared in these doorways<br />
Chorus (for the aftershocks...)<br />
<br />
On the day you left I did all those broken lover things<br />
I stood out on the stormy beach, staring at the tide<br />
A heroine in a romantic, tragic scene from far away<br />
For weeks I cried...<br />
<br />
Chorus (at every aftershock...)
