The Weeknd - aFTeR hoURs

[Verse 1]
Thought I almost died in my dream again (Baby, almost died)
Fightin' for my life, I couldn't breathe again
I'm fallin' in too deep (Oh, oh)
Without you, I can't sleep (Fallin' in)
'Cause my heart belongs to you
I'll risk it all for you
I want you next to me
This time, I'll never leave
I wanna share babies
Protection, we won't need
Your body next to me
Is just a memory
I'm fallin' in too deep, oh
Without you, I can't sleep
Insomnia relieve, oh
Talk to me, without you, I can't breathe

[Verse 2]
My darkest hours
Girl, I felt so alone inside of this crowded room
Different girls on the floor, distractin' my thoughts of you
I turned into the man I used to be, to be
Put myself to sleep
Just so I can get closer to you inside my dreams
Didn't wanna wake up 'less you were beside me
I just wanted to call you and say, and say

“After Hours” is the title track and the third promotional single for The Weeknd’s fourth studio album After Hours. The song addresses a failed relationship that ended in heartbreak and serves as an apology letter for his past transgressions, as he desires reconciliation. Additionally, the song’s dark vibes and altered vocals over hard-hitting production are reminiscent of styles seen on Abel’s earlier music such as November 2012’s Trilogy. The track is also thematically similar to songs from that era, as he once again details the pain and anguish associated with heartbreak. On February 18, 2020, the day before the track’s release, Abel revealed the album’s cover art and teased the track’s release date via social media.
