Underneath (Tom Shapiro, Catt Gravitt, Josh Crosby, Adam Lambert).
In some ways, this haunting ballad's the most interesting song on the album. First off, Tom Shapiro's better known as a country songwriter, with cuts on the new albums from Casey James and Carrie Underwood. And, with its promises of secret confidences and unrevealed truths, it offers a near-irresistible lure, especially to those who feel that, as an artist, Adam gets, at best, misunderstood and, more likely, maligned. "Everybody wants to talk about a freak/Nobody wants to dig that deep/Let me take you underneath," he sings, beginning a journey that ends with "Welcome to my world of truth/I don't want to hide any part of me from you."
