Josh shares about the title track, which was featured in the movie ‘October Baby,’ “Our new song Life is Beautiful is a one that is really special to all of us in the band. It came right out of our lives and I hope it's a reminder of all the things that make every life so beautiful. Every day is a gift...a new chance to live for the important things, and to be everything that God made us to be. Please check it out and let us know what you think.”
While the band worked on the project, they exposed some of the lyrics from their yet unreleased songs.
"I've seen joy and I've seen pain, and on my knees I call Your name. Here's my broken Hallelujah. With nothing left to hold onto, I raise these empty hands to You. Here's my broken Hallelujah" - From The Afters new (unreleased) song "Broken Hallelujah."
"For every moment of your life. For every smile and tear you cry. Even when your heart will break, when it feels like more than you can take. Through every single sleepless night and every battle that you fight. From now until the end of time...I am with you always" - From The Afters new (unreleased) song "With You Always"
