Lyrics

Rainbow, waiting by my window
Rainbow, singing at my door
And the Georgia pines and dandelions are bobbing in the careless summer breeze

Sunshine, skipping on the sidewalk
Sunshine, but not as bright as you
When you shattered free, you blined me, and now I'm seeing stars around my head

    And it's all I know
    You're the afterglow
    That never fades

Tadpole, squiggle in the water
Tadpole, dancing toward the light
From a pollywog into a frog in twenty seconds flat, well how 'bout that?

Mayfly, skimming on the water
Mayfly, only for a day
And if love is just a fleeting whim, then why is it you never dimmed away?

    And it's all I know
    You're the afterglow
    That never fades

After all these years
Of living in your shadow
After all these years
Of bathing in your light
The only thing I know
Is you're the afterglow
That never fades

My love, brighter than a diamond
My love, shining like the sun
But I never try to close my eyes, I never want to hide you in the dark

    And it's all I know
    You're the afterglow
    That never fades

    And it's all I know
    You're the afterglow
    So just take it slow
    Until the sun falls low
    Then light me up

This song is absolutely one of my favorite J Woodward songs of all time. Between the years of 2004 and 2008, this song is definitely within the top 3 of the best songs released. The way the song comes to a close is superb!
