"Afterglow" as written by and Francis Healy....
Feeling myself all of the time
All of the time feeling alright
Taking a while raising a smile makes it all worth while

But if you wanted to find peace of mind
Then you could find it any time you liked
You are the afterglow

Feeling my way all of the time
All of the time doing just fine
Taking a page out of my life
Out of my life wouldn't it be nice

But if you wanted to find peace of mind
Then you couldn't find it any time you liked
You are the afterglow

You are the midnight show
The only one I know
You come and then you go
And when you finally leave
You leave nothing for me

    General CommentMy favourite song from the Invisible Band CD. The lyrics combined with the saultry music immediately made me think of lying next to someone in bed after sharing the intimacies of sex. You lie next to someone and realize how important they are. Sex is part of the package, but it is the comfort you share after lying in each others arms, "the afterglow" that is more important. Could be completely wrong but thats my interpratation.

    General CommentI think this song is realizing how special someone is in your life. How they can make you endlessly happy.
