Afters, The - Live On Forever Lyrics

Dark days are gonna go away
They won't have the final say
These bones were always gonna fade
'Cause we were made for another place
The moment of our final breath
When all our fears are put to rest
Every tear will disappear
Heaven is real

We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We are not where we belong
We have a hope we're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever

Breathing air we have never breathed
We'll see colors we've never seen
Every sound like a symphony
Rising up as the angels sing
The arms of grace are open wide
The face of love before our eyes
Where every tear will disappear
Heaven is real

We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We are not where we belong
We have a hope we're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever

Our hearts have been set in motion
For something more, for something more
Than we could ever imagine
There's so much more, there's so much more

We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever
We are not where we belong
We have a hope we're gonna live on
Forever, forever, forever

Afters, The Live On Forever Comments
  1. Abel Lewis

    The sad thing about this song is EVERYBODY is going to live forever, but not in the same place. Enough said.

  2. Makeup Love

    Parts of this song sounds like "talk" from coldplay which is a sample from another old song.

  3. Wendy Tep

    Hellooooo! I'm from Cambodia. After listen to your songs (LOVE PHNOM PENH FESTIVAL). And I'm here for the songs again. You and your band are amazing. Thank you for coming to Cambodia and serve God.

  4. Cherisse Bend

    I pray that the day I die I'm right with the Lord

  5. Pearla

    This is my all time FAVORITE song. It makes me smile and is so assuring and powerful because it’s the TRUTH. Man I can’t wait to give Jesus a huge hug and be reunited with Him and the Father!!!!!!

  6. lisa hendren

    Truely I can only imagine what amazing smells and sounds you'll experience in paradise. And oh dear God! The beautiful things we will see!!! Imagine having the body of an Olympic athlete while reaching to pluck and eat the sweetest tasting apple you've ever had while viewing the most amazing looking sunrise also while sorounded by your best friends and family while having the greatest conversations and fun you've ever had with them and that's just a taste of heaven. We can only imagine for now. " Heard a preacher say this once before and man I believe it's true.

  11. Dawn Johnson

  15. Russell Grigsby

    love this song and video, but kinda lonely, eh? "Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: 'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!' " -Revelation 5:11

  16. Branzilla 17

    I didn't know Andy Dalton could sing 👀

  17. lisa hendren

    God,Jesus,Holy Spirit are good!

  18. D W

    This is what I dream of when I sleep. Like in the garden pre sin where we did not draw sweat from our brow.

  19. Armando Cardona

    It just goes to prove that some of the VERY BEST contemporary music is Christian music and some of the finest contemporary music videos are Christian music videos--this song and this video have NOTHING TO ENVY any other contemporary artist or band. VERY ACCOMPLISHED technically: the melody, the rhythm, the lyrics, the editing, EVERYTHING.

  20. Susan Bond

    this song inspires me]

  21. Kate Fokina

    The channel has a drum cover of the song :)

  22. Asch The Bloody

    I feel so bad for all of you brainwashed sheep. Following what a 2,000 year old book tells you is just idiotic.

  23. Megan Taylor

    Best music video I've ever seen, I have to wonder if this was inspired work from the Holy Spirit.

  24. Kristy Marie

    Rest In Peace my sweet brother. Love you with all my heart. 2/22/90 - 5/13/19

  25. Project: S.W.4.G

    Personally, I think this is literally one of the only good modern Christian songs that exist right now. Most of the others are too repetitive, sound cliche, or just sound like no effort was put into them whatsoever. This song is a perfect balance of everything that makes a song good.

  26. Eddye Pepin

    This is literally the Christian OneRepublic y’all!!! 😭😭😭🔥🔥🔥

  27. Sabit Bagirli

    I have been listening to The Afters nearly 10 years and I really dont understand why they are not worldwide known band. Far better than most of todays bullshit bands and singers. They have many good songs. Every time when I turn on their music in my car everyone asks who is it.

  29. CB Franks

    while I enjoyed the vid & song... my hope was that somewhere in the lyrics/video there might be a stronger reference to God...a message of salvation thru Jesus... otherwise, it is easily misread as secular with a new age metaphysical eternal spirit message... life continues after death, yes, but is totally different depending on your choice while alive... Choose Jesus before it's too late...and it's you on that bicycle crushed by a car.

  41. PJB Gaming

    To be honest this song makes me cry, my life is hard and please someone pray for me, I have been thinking a lot and I take life for granted I wake up everyday thinking it’s a new day and I don’t even thank the one person who lets me breath everyday and see and hear, I want to change this someone help me, I get emotional from songs like these, God bless you all

    Gentlemen, such a beautiful and powerful song that puts me to tears. God bless you. 'We are not where we belong. We have hope.' I am so grateful that our Heavenly Father gave you the gift of this song to bring to us. For there is salvation by God's grace through our faith in Jesus Christ. Such good news of the Gospel. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father except by him. Brothers and sisters out there, please seek the Lord; as the time is now; for we are in end times. Many blessings to you all and with Love.
