Jack Wagner – After The Fact Lyrics

You know, a man can only take so much
Then he’s forced to let go of the things he loves

I tried to tell you
All along
You weren’t bein’ smart
Just headstrong
You like to argue
Just to see who’d win
You didn’t know
The stronger lover always gives in

After the fact
Well, you know it’s too late
And I’m not comin’ back
After the fact
You said you made a mistake
But there’s no more tomorrow
After the fact
Well, there’s no one to blame
When love fades away, oh no

All the "could haves"
And all the "should haves"

Never had a chance
Now it’s all in the past
So why’d you wait till now
To say what you should’ve said before
You only think of it
As I’m welkin’ out the door

After the fact
Well, you know it’s too late
And I’m not comin’ back (no)
After the fact
You said you made a mistake
I’m tellin’ you that its over

After the fact
Well, there’s no one to blame
When love fades away, no

Too bad at the time
You did not understand
You were holding all of me, all of me
All of me in the palm of your hand
