The Afters – Keeping Me Alive lyrics

It's like I never lived
Before my life with you
So much was missing here
I never even knew
I still picture the place we were
When I fell into your world

My heart is in you
Where you go you carry me
I bleed
If you bleed
Your heart beats
Inside of me
You're keeping me alive

I don't know why feel this way
But something's right
You're like the morning air
Before the light arrives
No more lonely and
No more night
No more secrets to hide


I'll hold you near
Together, we'll never die
Your love is keeping me alive

    This song means so much to me! A little while ago my boyfriend was visiting family in Georgia. When he came back I had to tell him the news that I found out I had an irregular heart beat. As the days/weeks progressed it started to get worse, come to find out I had a hole in my heart and the only way to keep me healthy until surgery was to have good feelings. He always made me so happy! No matter what we were doing he was always there for me to cheer me up and keep me in a positive state. But, about 4 months after that we broke up. We still talk to this day just as if we were a couple. But I do have my whole entire life to owe to him and I still love him so much. He literally is keeping me alive, I owe everything to him!

    This song is about God. He says now that "my heart is in you where you go you carry me" that's referring to where God says in Jeremiah how He knows the plans he has for us. And its so true how he says "it's like i never lived..." this is explaining how dead we are before we come into the light of God and accept Jesus as our Savior.
