"So Much For The Afterglow" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
This is a song about Susan
This is a song about the girl next door
This is a song about the everyday occurrences that make you feel like letting go
Yes I think we've got a problem

So much for the afterglow
This is a song about Susan
This is a song about the way things are
This is a song about the scary things you see from the corner of your eyes
Don't you wonder why?

We never talk about the future
We never talk about the past anymore
We never ask ourselves the questions to the answers that nobody even wants to know
I guess the honeymoon is over

So much for the afterglow
I remember we could talk about anything
I remember when we used to want to hang out
We never talk about the future
We never talk about the past anymore
We never ask ourselves the questions to the answers that nobody even wants to know

Oh well oh well oh well
So much for the afterglow
Oh well oh well oh well
Yes I guess we need the drama
So much for the afterglow

    General Commentthese guys are awesome. somehow, they manage to blend grunge and pop on a record, and make it work. this song actually sounds like summer. the beach boys harmonies switching to blazing guitar is awesome. plus all the lyrics on the album, especially this song, are the greatest.

    General Commenti agree... its got one of the best intros ever.... it just pumps you up for the rest of the awesome song

    This is a song about the everyday occurances that make you feel like letting go
    - thats just about the little shitty things that happen in life that make you wanna end it all

    Don't you wonder why?
    We never talk about the future
    - they don't talk about the future anymore because there is no future for them

    I guess the honeymoon is over
    So much for the afterglow
    - pretty self explanatory... 'so much 4 the afterglow' hes just accepting his losses... accepting that the relationship is falling apart... and so much for their bright future

    this is an awesome as hell song
    i love it

    General Commentthis is a song about being completely jaded. they dude thought he had a future, but everything falls apart and he realizes that there is nothing good in his days to come.

    General Commentafterglow: The comfortable feeling following a pleasant experience; A lingering impression of past glory or success.

    I think the definition and song title says it all.
