Afters, The - This Life Lyrics




I come in to tuck her in.
I'm so tired from where I've been,
Doing all I can to stay awake.

As she goes on about her day,
I hang on every word she says.
She reaches out and puts her hand in mine.

For a moment, we are here together.
And it hits me that this won't last forever.

We can't own it
We just get to hold it for a while.
This Life.
We can't keep it
Or save it for another time.
This Life.

He was always there for me.
Now he's fighting just to breathe.
I tell him it's ok to let go.

As I look into his eyes,
I know that this won't be the last time.
But for now, we're taking different roads.

For a moment, we are here together.
And it hits me that this won't last forever.

We can't own it
We just get to hold it for a while.
This Life.
We can't keep it
Or save it for another time.
This Life.

[x2]
What we give is all we have.
How we love is what will last.
And this hope we know will carry us through this life.
What we give is all we have.
How we love is what will last.
And this hope we know will carry us through this life.

We can't own it
We just get to hold it for a while.
This Life.
We can't keep it
Or save it for another time.
This Life.

We were never meant to stay,
So we don't have to be afraid
Of what is waiting on the other side.
Of this life

    Never take anyone for granted. ..

    Never take anyone for granted and realize that Our Family, friends, are a blessing from our Heavenly Father . This even means here...Lord knows I desire to meet all of you beloved brother's and sisters in Christ. ..even the ones who don't walk with our Lord Jesus Christ.
