Adam Lambert – Aftermath

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment at 7:30 am by LynxLee

After Adam Lambert’s “It Gets Better” message over YouTube over the gay stuff, this track just gives the most powerful feeling to anything you would and could have faced.

Personally, life’s tough. I’ve got great news of getting married in a month. I’ve also got shaky times at work. In fact, someone just scratched my new car. A kid opened the door wide open and knocked it good. Sure, it’s a small thing.. but.. oh the payments.. you know what I mean?

Anyhow, roll with it I always say.

Aftermath (Billboard Remix)

Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright, in the aftermath


Have you lost your way?
Livin’ in the shadow of the messes that you made
And so it goes
Everything inside your circle starts to overflow
Take a step before you leap
Into the colors that you seek
You give back what you give away
So don’t look back on yesterday 

Wanna scream out, no more hiding
Don’t be afraid of what’s inside
Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright
In the aftermath

Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you’re not allowed
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath

You feel the weight
Of lies and contradictions that you live with every day
It’s not too late
Think of what could be if you rewrite the role you play

Take a step before you leap
Into the colors that you seek
You give back what you give away
So don’t look back on yesterday

Wanna scream out, no more hiding
Don’t be afraid of what’s inside
Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright
In the aftermath

Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you’re not allowed
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath
In the aftermath

Before you break you have to change your own mind
Take a trip and fall into the pit
Tell a stranger that their view is full

So all you feel is love, love
All you feel is love, love

Wanna scream out, no more hiding
Don’t be afraid of what’s inside
Wanna tell you you’ll be alright
In the aftermath

Wanna scream out
No more hiding
Don’t be afraid of what’s inside
Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright
In the Aftermath

Anytime anybody pulls you down
Anytime anybody says you’re not allowed
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath

In the aftermath
(Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright)
In the aftermath
In the aftermath
Just remember you are not alone
In the aftermath

Dr. Dre ft. Eminem & Skylar Grey – I Need A Doctor

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 11:37 am by LynxLee

Lyrics copied from RapGenius.com. Check out the site for explanation on each hook, verse, chorus and so on interactively.

I introduced my wife to this track and Music Video about a week ago and she was hooked. She likes how Skylar Grey sings and how the song is about Eminem rapping about Dr. Dre helped him up when he was down.

Dr. Dre’s album Detox was supposed to be released on December 2010, but it had delayed to April 20th, 2011. He also said, it’s gonna be his last album.

They recently performed this track on the Grammy’s, click here to check it out. For now, check out his incredible (HP and Ferrari shameless plugged) Music Video below:

Seems like your own opinions, not one you can form
Can’t make a decision you keep questionin’ yourself
Second guessin’ and it’s almost like your beggin’ for my help
Like I’m your leader, you’re supposed to fuckin’ be my mentor
I can endure no more I demand you remember who you are
It was YOU, who believed in me when everyone was tellin’
You don’t sign me, everyone at the fuckin’ label, let’s tell the truth
You risked your career for me, I know it as well as you
Nobody wanted to fuck with the white boy, Dre, I’m cryin’ in this booth
You saved my life, now maybe it’s my turn to save yours
But I can never repay you, what you did for me is way more
But I ain’t givin’ up faith and you ain’t givin’ up on me
Get up Dre I’m dyin’, I need you, come back for fuck’s sake

It literally feels like a lifetime ago
But I still remember the shit like it was just yesterday, though
You walked in, yellow jump suit, whole room, cracked jokes
Once you got inside the booth, told you, MiC smoke
Went through friends, some of them I put on, but they just left
They said they was ridin’ to the death, but where the fuck are they now?
Now that I need them, I don’t see none of them
All I see is Slim, fuck all you fair-weather friends, all I need is him

[Hook: Skylar Grey]
I’m about to lose my mind
You’ve been gone for so long, I’m runnin’ outta time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor to bring me back to life 

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I told the world one day I would pay it back
Say it on tape, and lay it, record it so that one day I could play it back
But I don’t even know if I believe it when I’m sayin’ that
Doubts startin’ to creep in, everyday it’s so grey and black
Hope, I just need a ray of that, cause no one sees my vision
When I play it for ‘em, they just say it’s wack, they don’t know what dope is
And I don’t know if I was awake or asleep when I wrote this
All I know is you came to me when I was at my lowest
You picked me up, breathin’ life in me, I owe my life to you
But for the life of me, I don’t see why you don’t see like I do
But it just dawned on me you lost a son, demons fighting you, it’s dark
Let me turn on the lights and brighten me and enlighten you
I don’t think you realise what you mean to me, not the slightest clue
Cause me and you were like a crew, I was like your sidekick
You gon either wanna fight me when I get off this fuckin’ mic
Or you gon’ hug me, but I’m outta options, there’s nothin’ else I can do cause

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Eminem]
It hurts when I see you struggle, you come to me with ideas
You say they’re just pieces, so I’m puzzled, cause the shit I hear is crazy
But you’re either gettin’ lazy or you don’t believe in you no more
Seems like your own opinions, not one you can form
Can’t make a decision you keep questionin’ yourself
Second guessin’ and it’s almost like your beggin’ for my help
Like I’m your leader, you’re supposed to fuckin’ be my mentor
I can endure no more I demand you remember who you are
It was YOU, who believed in me when everyone was tellin’
You don’t sign me, everyone at the fuckin’ label, let’s tell the truth
You risked your career for me, I know it as well as you
Nobody wanted to fuck with the white boy, Dre, I’m cryin’ in this booth
You saved my life, now maybe it’s my turn to save yours
But I can never repay you, what you did for me is way more
But I ain’t givin’ up faith and you ain’t givin’ up on me
Get up Dre I’m dyin’, I need you, come back for fuck’s sake

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Dr. Dre]
It literally feels like a lifetime ago
But I still remember the shit like it was just yesterday, though
You walked in, yellow jump suit, whole room, cracked jokes
Once you got inside the booth, told you, MiC smoke
Went through friends, some of them I put on, but they just left
They said they was ridin’ to the death, but where the fuck are they now?
Now that I need them, I don’t see none of them
All I see is Slim, fuck all you fair-weather friends, all I need is him
Fuckin’ backstabbers, when the chips were down you just laughed at us
Now you bout to feel the fuckin’ wrath of Aftermath, faggots
You gon’ see us in our lab jackets and ask us where the fuck we been?
You can kiss my indecisive ass crack, maggots
And the crackers’ ass, little crack a jack beat
Makin’ wack math, backwards producers, I’m back bastards
One more CD and then I’m packin’ up my bags and as I’m leavin’
I’ll guarantee they scream, “Dre, don’t leave us like that man!” cause
