After The Party's Over

After the party's over
And the guests have all passed the door
There's a melancholy feeling
And your home you re-explore.

Where once was conversation
Where once was noise and light
There is now just empty silence
And the darkened shell of night.

After the party’s over
And the friend and the relatives gone
There are spirits still within the home
And you hear a haunting song.

Where once were people standing
Where once was energy
Is not now peopled with their shadows
And the only one is me.

After the party’s over
And the glasses and plates are all clean
There’s a stillness that’s returning
And that party is now just a dream.
