Aftermath

This rock ballad, which appears on the album For Your Entertainment (2009) by Adam Lambert, was written by Lambert along with Alisan Porter, Ferras and Ely Rise.

"'Aftermath' is probably the most Idol-esque type song on the album. The cool thing is that the lyrics are basically about dealing with your demons. I think there's a universal message in it. It might be about coming out, it might be about self-acceptance, taking the chance of keeping it real and doing what you feel in your heart you have to do, even though it's scary, even though people might not like it. It might be about going to AA. Any sort of traumatic life moment, and in the aftermath of it, of making that decision and dealing with whatever it is you're dealing with, you'll find solace in it. It's another kind of empowerment-type anthem."

- Adam Lambert for Rolling Stone


Lyrics

Have you lost your way?
Livin' in the shadow of the messes that you made
And so it goes
Everything inside your circle starts to overflow  
Take a step before you leap
Into the colors that you seek
You get back what you give away
So don't look back on yesterday  
 
Wanna scream out
No more hiding
Don't be afraid of what's inside
Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
In the aftermath
Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
Just remember you are not alone 
In the aftermath
 
You feel the weight
Of lies and contradictions that you live with everyday
It's not too late
Think of what could be if you rewrite the role you play
Take a step before you leap
Into the colours that you seek
You get back what you give away
So don't look back on yesterday
 
Wanna scream out
No more hiding
Don't be afraid of what's inside
Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
In the aftermath
Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath
In the aftermath
 
Before you break you have to shed your armor  
Take a trip and fall into the glitter
Tell a stranger that they're beautiful
So all you feel is love, love
All you feel is love, love

Wanna scream out
No more hiding
Don't be afraid of what's inside
Wanna tell you you'll be alright
In the aftermath
 
Wanna scream out
No more hiding
Don't be afraid of what's inside
Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
In the aftermath
 
Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath
In the aftermath
Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
In the aftermath
In the aftermath
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath
