"After All" as written by and Ed Roland....
We steal to lose every color
From the sky
Then crawl as a child
While the shadows burn our eyes

We know there's no longer shine
On this burned out rainbow

Lately it seems we've been chasing
What times resolved
Maybe something means nothing here
After all

Whispers are now screams
This conclusion never ends
My pride with your kiss
Even angels can't defend

We know we're running head on
Into our confusion

Still we hide safe behind these crumbled walls
Cause we know there's nothing here after all

    General CommentVery much so. I love this song. Im surprised no one commented. To me, this song is a man who is finally realizing that he might not be in love after all. That maybe its time to let go. Time has resolved this long ago. And he is starting to accept it.

    General CommentI believe it's a guy who is going through a tough time in his relationship and is wondering if it is just a phase or it is really over. 'Lately, it seems we've been chasing what time's resolved or maybe something means nothing here after all'. In other words, 'time has told us that we simply can't get along and no amount of effort is going to change that or maybe we are just over-reacting and it's not really as bad as we think'.

    General CommentI like these lyrics... I haven't heard the song, though. Does anyone know if the music does it justice?

    General CommentI sort of get the hint that it's about someone who thinks they know all they need to know, but then realizes they're wrong.

    General Commentyeah..this is about a man who found out that there was no love in a relation ship after all the times and the efforts he has given to it...
    he finally admitted this truth because it became apparent to other people ("my pride in your kiss even angels cant defend')..sad, but inevitable..

    General Commentwhat was once something special has now faded and become something ordinary and nothing at all.

    General CommentI agree with stixx_n_strings... I feel like it's about humanity coming to discover that each of us doesn't have all the answers, despite whatever attempts we've made to cultivate our talents and intellect. My favorite line: "We know we're running head on into our confusion."
