• The Afters - What We're Here For
    From the album Life Is Beautiful

    Friday, came home
    Waved to a neighbor I don't know
    He smiled at me and I believed he was doing just fine
    His eyes can't lie
    Something tearing him up on the inside
    I wonder what it is
    I should ask him

    But I've got my own life
    Will I pass by
    Or am I gonna take the time

    This is what we're here for
    To show the world how You love it
    This is what we're made for
    To lay it all down like You did
    When we feel useless, You still use us
    Help us not forget
    This is what we're here for

    We're here to slow down, reach out
    Take a better look around
    Just a little bit of time can change a life
    So I won't walk by and leave it up to the next guy
    I wanna be what I believe all of the time

    I've got my own life
    But it's not mine, no

    To give
    To love
    To be the ones to show that You have overcome the dark
    The night
    The pain we fight
    That You are alive

    What we're here for
    What we're made for
    This is what we're here for
