"Aftershock" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
I don't care about the way that ya treated me
And I ain't crying 'bout the love I'm paying for
No, I ain't bitching 'bout the things
You putting down here in the street
No, I ain't going 'round saying things
About you I can't repeat
Hey it ain't gonna change overnight
No, and it ain't going away without a fight
No, now I ain't saying that I'm never gonna beg you, oh baby come back
But right now, baby
I don't really want to see your face
Yeah and that's a fact
Right now, honey
All I know is what I'm feeling inside
Right now, honey
I'm alone and I'm swallowing a lot
Of pride
And it ain't gonna change
Overnight, no
And it ain't goin' away without
A fight
Living with the aftershock
Why, why, why, I never thought
She'd walk
But now I'm living with the
Aftershock
And it ain't gonna change
It ain't goin' away, no
Yeah, she opened up my eyes
Seeing what I want to see
She kinda took me by surprise
Showed me what I hadn't seen
Yeah, yeah
Living with the aftershock
Yeah, yeah living with the aftershock
My, my, my, I guess that I never
Thought she'd walk
Living with the aftershock
And it ain't gonna change
It ain't goin' away
I said it ain't gonna change without
A fight
I'm living with the aftershock
I'm living with the aftershock
Never gonna change

    General CommentIt's about dealing with things after a really good relationship. He probly loved this person alot and after she left he has to deal with it, which would be what he calls "the Aftershock".

    My InterpretationPretty sure that Sammy wrote this song after the divorce (or at least while he was going through the divorce process) from his first wife. Dealing with the "Aftershock" of all of that.
