The Afters - What We're Here For
From the album Life Is Beautiful
Friday, came homeWaved to a neighbor I don't knowHe smiled at me and I believed he was doing just fineHis eyes can't lieSomething tearing him up on the insideI wonder what it isI should ask himBut I've got my own lifeWill I pass byOr am I gonna take the timeThis is what we're here forTo show the world how You love itThis is what we're made forTo lay it all down like You didWhen we feel useless, You still use usHelp us not forgetThis is what we're here forWe're here to slow down, reach out Take a better look aroundJust a little bit of time can change a lifeSo I won't walk by and leave it up to the next guyI wanna be what I believe all of the timeI've got my own lifeBut it's not mine, noTo giveTo loveTo be the ones to show that You have overcome the darkThe nightThe pain we fightThat You are aliveWhat we're here forWhat we're made forThis is what we're here forPublishing: Smells Like Music / Screaming Mimes Music (ASCAP) (adm. by Music Services); 9t One Songs / Ariose Music (ASCAP) (adm. by emicmgpublishing.com); D Soul Music / Universal Music-Brentwood Benson Publishing (ASCAP) (adm. by Universal Music Brentwood Benson)Writer(s): Josh Havens / Matt Fuqua; Ben Glover; David Garcia
