After the guns are silent
After your wounds have healed
After those crosses have been planted in all those fields
After that long boat ride
All the way across the sea
And after this train carries thee

Chorus:
I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always, and more

After your boots dry
And the tobacco's all but gone
Along with all those postcards you've carried under your arm
After I remember all the words I couldn't say
And after this long night fades away

I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always, and more

After this blackbird
Lifts up from off your chest
After your soul takes its final rest
My love, I forgive you; you never planned to die
And Love, I'll place two pennies over your eyes

I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always, and more
