«After All» is a song by Canadian electronic music group Delerium, with vocals provided by Swiss singer Jaël. It was the first single released from the album Chimera.

In accordance with the style taken by Delerium on Chimera, «After All» fits the pop music mold more than most of the group’s music produced to date. This is evident in the song’s structure, which takes the traditional verse-chorus form of contemporary pop rock, as well as tighter songwriting, with a complete absence of the extended ambient musical sections present in Delerium songs as recent as those on Poem.

The pop music form is also recognisable in the instruments in the song, including prominent use of acoustic guitar riffs.

The song received minor airplay on adult contemporary format radio stations, reflecting it being more in line with the style contemporaneous mainstream music.
