"Afterparty" as written by Kevin Patrick Devine, Jesse Lacey, Amy Bracco, Chris Bracco, Michael Robertson and Mike Skinner....
The afterparty's rockin', girl,
And everybody's dancing for you,
But you're just drinking all my Ballantine
And laughing while your lips turn blue.
Your friends are all uptight
And everybody's in an awkward mood,
So you keep drinking all my Ballantine
And laughing while your lips turn blue.

I'm not really planning on coming back
I thought I told you that.
I guess I dreamt I told you that.

The streets are slow and silent
And the backyard is a beat parade.
So, I'm just sweeping up the garbage
While I listen to the songs you play,
Where everybody's trying but they
Just can't get it straight.
So, I'm just sweeping up the garbage
While I whistle all the songs you play.

I keep changing my mind all the time
I hope you think that that's alright.
Yeah, I hope you tell me that that's all right.

So, I'm just slurring in the shade
When the daylight breaks,
And you and me have got it made.
Yeah, I think you and me have got it made.

    General CommentA girl breaks up with a boy, citing that she needs some time. She promises she'll come back, but the boy knows she's really just playing the field until she gets bored, and comes back to him. He knows that, and he's trying to convince himself that he doesn't still want to be with her.


    The girl is playing the field, being promiscuous. She is the center of attention, she can have any guy she wants now.---
    The afterparty's rockin', girl,
    and everybody's dancing for you

    The girl is just using the boy,---
    but you're just drinking all my Ballantine

    and trying to hide her lies--
    and laughing while your lips turn blue.

    Her new friends aren't what they seemed ---
    Your friends are all uptight
    and everybody's in an awkward mood,

    He knows that she is lying about her promiscuity, but doesn't say anything, just 'sweeps it up' ---
    I'm just sweeping up the garbage
    while I listen to the songs you play

    He wishes that he could just tell her that he is done with her, but for some reason he can't---
    I'm not really planning on coming back
    I thought I told you that.
    I guess I dreamt I told you that.

    He's not really sure if he wants her gone though, ---
    I keep changing my mind all the time
    I hope you think that that's alright.
    Yeah, I hope you tell me that that's all right.


    He's kind of a secret to the girl's new friends, he's in the shade to them. He's really just waiting for her to come crawling back, even though he's trying to convince himself he doesn't want that ---
    So, I'm just slurring in the shade
    when the daylight breaks,



    I think this is just more of his indecisiveness, he's putting up a front ---
    and you and me have got it made.
    Yeah, I think you and me have got it made.
