The Lover After Me
Darren Hayes Lyrics


Here I go again, I promised myself
I wouldn't think of you today
It's been seven months and counting
You've moved on
I still feel exactly the same
It's just the that everywhere I go
All the buildings know your name like
Photographs and memories of love
Steel and granite reminders
The city calls your name and I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love

Am I all alone in the universe?
There's no love on these streets
I have given mine away to a world
That didn't want it anyway
So this is my new freedom
It's funny, but I don't remember being chained
But nothing seems to make sense anymore
Without you I'm always twenty minutes late

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love

And time goes by so slowly
The nights are cold and lonely
I shouldn't be holding on
But I'm still holding on for you

Here I go again, I promised myself
I wouldn't think of you today
But I'm standing at your doorway
I'm calling out your name 'cause I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone
The lights go out the same
The only difference is
You call another name
To your love
To your lover now
To your love

Here I go again I promised myself I wouldn't think of you today 
It's been seven months and counting 
You've moved on 
I still feel exactly the same 
It's just that everywhere I go all the buildings know your name 
Like photographs and memories of love 
Steel and granite reminders 
The city calls your name and I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone 
The lights go out the same 
The only difference is 
You call another name 
To your love 
To your lover now 
To your love 
The lover after me

Am I all alone in the universe? 
There's no love on these streets 
I have given mine away to a world that didn't want it anyway 
So this is my new freedom 
It's funny I don't remember being chained 
But nothing seems to make sense anymore 
Without you I'm always twenty minutes late

Ever since you've been gone 
The lights go out the same 
The only difference is 
You call another name 
To your love 
To your lover now 
To your love 
The lover after me

And as time goes by so slowly 
The nights are cold and lonely 
I shouldn't be holding on 
But I'm still holding on for you

Here I go again, I promised myself I wouldn't think of you today 
But I'm standing at your doorway 
I'm calling out your name because I can't move on

Ever since you've been gone 
The lights go out the same 
The only difference is 
You call another name 
To your love 
To your lover now 
To your love 
The lover after me

Such a lovely, yet sad song. One of my favorites in Affirmation album.

Raisa Cherry

Wells up my eyes in the most amazing way :')

Darren & Daniel together were just awesome, a great partnership. Don't think most people realize just how much of an impact they had. I've always loved Savage Garden - but maybe others are only now just discovering their genuis? This song for me, is their best - everyone can relate to it.

I met savage garden at the Ohio state fair a few years ago had back stage passes they were so sweet and kind would love to see them in concert again
