My Sunday Song – “Live On Forever” by The Afters

For My Sunday Song #7, I chose “Live On Forever” by the The Afters.  The song is off their brand new album, ‘Live On Forever’.  The song for me is a reminder of that faith in Christ will let us live forever even after we have left this world.

I was reading a review of the song on a so-called Christian website and was a little disappointed by the writer.  He stated that he wouldn’t listen to the song because it was to open for interpretation of what religion.  The song didn’t specifically mention Christ or God so could be interpreted to be any religion.  What an idiot.  He is one of the reasons I have a disdain for overly religious people.  It is their way or no way.  Not very Christian of him in my opinion.  Sorry for the rant.

The song is so soothing and so inspirational.  I instantly connected to it when I heard it and it is one of my favorite songs on their new album.  I will do a review of the album later. For now, enjoy the song and have a great Sunday!

“Live On Forever”

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 that we’re going 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

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

  1. It’s always frustrating when a Christian cuts down another Christian. Let’s just throw Switchfoot and Skillet out the window because they allow us to think rather than keep the standard Christianese message. Wouldn’t this be a great song to inspire someone to find out how to live on forever? Wouldn’t they seek to get the artist’s perspective?

    1. For me the frustration is the narrow-mindedness of a lot of Christians. I think as long as the message is getting out there, no matter what the form, that should be all that matters. Switchfoot and Skillet are great examples of people hearing the message, but not necessarily having it rammed down their throat. If that makes sense.
