"Afterglow" as written by and Tony Banks....
Like the dust that settles all around me,
I must find a new home.
The ways and holes that used to give me shelter,
Are all as one to me now.
But I, I would search everywhere
Just to hear your call,
And walk upon stranger roads than this one
In a world I used to know before.
I miss you more.

Than the sun reflecting off my pillow,
Bringing the warmth of new life.
And the sounds that echoed all around me,
I caught a glimpse of in the night.
But now, now I've lost everything,
I give to you my soul.
The meaning of all that I believed before
Escapes me in this world of none, no thing, no one.

And I would search everywhere
Just to hear your call,
And walk upon stranger roads than this one
In a world I used to know before.
For now I've lost everything,
I give to you my soul.
The meaning of all that I believed before
Escapes me in this world of none,
I miss you more.

    My InterpretationThis is definitely one of my top 10 songs because of the emotion I feel listening to it and singing along. I am guessing my interpretation was not what was intended, but ever since I really listened to this song and the lyrics, it makes me think this:
    someone (the person singing the song) who, while living was in an incredibly strong relationship with their soul mate, dies and leaves their soul mate on Earth (still living). They "lost everything" material and they miss their partner so much that they decide to give the only thing that they have left...their soul...to their soul mate.
