I still love you
I still want you
I still need you
After all

For better or worse
Sickness and health
Till death do us part
After all

Please don't keep me
(Please don't leave me)
Please don't keep me
(Please don't leave me)

Please don't keep me
(Please don't leave me)
After all
(Please don't)

After all
(After all)
After all
(After all)

After all
(After all)
After all
After all

    General CommentThis song (actually titled "After Afterall") is part two to the song called "Afterall" on the previous album, Goodnight.

    This entire album is based on William's previous marriage and it's disintegration. This first "stage" if you will is William stating that after all the hardships that his relationship has been through, he wants to make those marriage vows ring true (for better or worse, in sickness and health, til death do us part).

    The second part shows a realization that after all the hardships the relationship has been through, the damage is irreconcilable in his mind- (please don't keep me) but the female voice wants to make it work (please don't leave me).

    General Commenti also think of it, personally, as meaning "please don't leave me... after all this," and, conversely, "please don't keep me... i'm not worth it."
