"Life After You" as written by Christopher A. Daughtry, Brett James, Chad Robert Kroeger and Joey Moi....
Ten miles from town
And I just broke down
Spitting out smoke on the side of the road
I'm out here alone
Just trying to get home
To tell you I was wrong, but you already know
Believe me, I won't stop at nothing to see you
So I've started running

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

Last time we talked
The night that I walked
Burns like an iron in the back
Of my mind
I must have been high
To say you and I weren't meant to be
And just wasting my time
Oh why did I ever doubt you
You know I would die here without you

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

You and I, right or wrong
There's no other one
After this time spent alone
It's hard to believe
That a man with sight could be so blind
Thinking about the better times
Must've been out of my mind
So I'm running back to tell you

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I'd do
All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you

And I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
I know there's no life after you
No there's no life after you
No there's no life after you
No there's no life after you
No there's no life after you
No there's no life after you
No there's no life after you ya

    General CommentWhen I was listening to this for the first time, I thought the song was really sweet right after I heard the lines "Believe me I won't stop at nothin', To see you so I've started runnin'."

    General CommentI think its about wanting to hurry and get home to fix things after an arguement. Daughtry is such an incredible band. everything they bring carries an awsome meaning and every song is delivered with such strength. what took them so long to get here!?!

    General CommentI think some of us get to the point in our lives where we realize what's most important in this life and who you really want to spend your time with. I love the lyrics to this song because he just wants to be happy and has decided there's that one person who makes him happiest. I love the line "You and I, right or wrong", meaning it doesn't matter if it's the perfect situation or there are issues with the relationship, having that person to laugh with, grow old with, and love forever is worth any struggle that may come along.

    Plus Chris Daughtry is really hot, how can you not love him and his music? LOL

    General Commenti think pretty much chris is trying to get the message out that if you love someone, and things dont seem to work out, dont give up and go after her. overall shes what you want, sometimes what your need.

    General Comment"It's hard to believe that a man with sight could be so blind"

    This is probably my favorite line.

    The song itself is basically a guy regreting some of the things he said to the person he loves. And realizing that there's no one like her, or atleast to him

    General CommentI like this song from the new album.

    I've noticed it has a similar rhthym to "Daughters" by John Mayer.
