After Tomorrow Night

Ever since I was a young boy,
I've been tongue-tied and shy.
Ah in that train, just yesterday,
I saw you riding by.

You have got to think about position
And I've got to think about left and right
(left and right, left and right)
Now that you've come to your decision

Oh tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.
Tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.

Woke up this morning,
Gave you a thought
So I laid down and gave you one more
I've been plotting, scheming,
Hoping, dreaming,
All day about trying to score

You've got a thing about about position
And I've got a thing about left and right
(left and right, left and right)
Now that you've come to your decision

Tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.
Tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.

[guitar solo]

I've been crossing my knees
I've been darking my eyes
I'm in line with my peacenik queues
Well I straighten my head
Then I iron my tie
And I wonder what suit to choose

I've got a thing about about position
And I've gotta think about left and right
(left and right, left and right)
Now that you've come to your decision

Oh tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.
Tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.

Tell me, how can I forget you
After tomorrow night.

muffnote:
Demo tape from the Grace and Danger period which had been circulating in apalling quality on bootleg cassettes before it finally was officially released as a bonus track on Grace & Danger Deluxe Edition.
The bootleg demo has a shorter lyric and one different verse. At the start of this version, John says "You need to count to me now" indicating that he is not much into solid 4/4 rhythms. Probably becauser they're boring.
