"After All This Time" as written by Simon Soloman Webbe, Timothy Daniel Woodcock and Matt Prime....
After all, the broken stones
That were thrown, for no good reason
Inside, she's loving him still
After all this time
And though her heart, begs the stars
No sign of healing, it's all right
She's loving him still, after all this time.

Oh yeah

Trying to push the past away
Still waiting for the lights to change
Try, try for the sake of it
Learning to barely feel the pain
Thicker the skin the less the strain
And though it's really hurting
She ain't breaking, breaking, breaking
Coz she's loving him still, after all this time

Now he knows his weakness shows
Selfish soul, never changing
That's fine, because she's loving him still
After all this time

And to the outside eye
You see you found a different guy
And it all seems perfect, and that's how she wants it
Coz she's loving him still, after all this time.

Trying to push the past away
Still waiting for the lights to change
Try, try for the sake of it
Learning to barely feel the pain
Thicker the skin the less the strain
And though it's really hurting
She ain't breaking, breaking, breaking
Coz she's loving him still, after all this time

After all this time
After all, after all, after all this time

Bones have to grow, and age it shows
Though we try and hide it
Inside, she's loving him still
After all this time
And behind his tired eyes, she sees the boy with his arms wide

Who made her feel like an angel
Oh that's why she's loving him still
For the rest of her life, she's loving him still
For the last of many miles
She's loving him still
After all this time

    General CommentWell, i'm a hardcore Oasis fan but i just got into this song cos i recently split from my gf. Gives me a really good feeling personally, that, after all we've been through i know she will always love me. The line "And behind his tired eyes, she sees the boy with his arms wide, who made her feel like an angel", sums it all up for me. so sad.

    General Commenthunni, im pretty sure its runnin 2 barely feel the pain insteada learnin =0D

    i havnt rly liked ne of simons otha sngs, but this 1 is gr8. I broke up with my bloke bout 4 months ago, but stil have feelins 4 him. i try 2 put him dwn and show that i rly dnt care bout him, but am stil lovin him, so this song shows that ppl wil try 2 b strong and move on even tho deep dwn they stil wnt thier baby bak. its an upsettin truth.

    General CommentThis song makes me think of an ex of mine. We dated for six months and he still has my heart, "after all this time". It just shows that even if you say you've moved on, you haven't. And even if you have another guy you're always going to feel something for that other boy because they mean so much to you. So, you just have to put up a front so no one know's that you're really breaking down.

    General Comment"And though her heart, begs the stars" - should be "And though her heart, bares the scars, No sign of healing...

    When I hear this song it always makes me sad to think of the idea that someone could hurt another so much, and the front you sometimes feel forced to wear so that people actually believe you're ok, when you're not.
