Ask Her, After: 52 Songs in 52 Weeks #12

My goal is to write and record a song each week for a year.  “Ask Her, After” is the twelfth song in my songwriting series “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

Lyrics

Actor
Did you know you’re an actor, baby?
Oh, after
What are we after?
Ask her
Ask her

Chorus
They say she’s got a bleeding heart
Ain’t it a shame
Finding absolution
Isn’t some kind of game

Reminding herself
Yeah, she inked it on her sleeve
Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe

He asked her, oh God
Why did he ask her? Laughter
Disaster
He and she were a disaster
After
Ask her

Chorus
They say she’s got a bleeding heart
Ain’t it a shame
Finding absolution
Isn’t some kind of game

Reminding herself
Yeah, she inked it on her sleeve
Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe
She’ll still believe

Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe
