The Afters

The Afters are a Christian rock band founded by Joshua Havens and Matt Fuqua. Havens and Fuqua first worked together in a Starbucks coffee shop in Mesquite, Texas, where they played for customers, before deciding to form a band. They added Brad Wigg and Marc Dodd, who were also employed at the same Starbucks, under their original name of Blisse. Their song "Never Going Back to OK" was the most-played song on R&R magazine's Christian CHR chart for 2008. more »

There's a different sunrise
It's a different world
In a way I feel like
I have just begun

Like I don't remember
Waking up from a dream
All my chains are broken
And it feels so free

I can breathe for the first time
I can see for the first time
It's like you opened my eyes
I can feel my heart is coming alive
I feel alive
I can breathe for the first time
For the first time
For the first time
Oh Oh Oh
For the first time
For the first time

Once a life imprisoned
I was locked in the past
But your love has given
Given one more chance

Once my light was fading
But you gave me yours
Now my world is brighter
Than it was before

I can breathe for the first time
I can see for the first time
It's like you opened my eyes
I can feel my heart is coming alive
I feel alive
I can breathe for the first time
For the first time
For the first time
Oh Oh Oh
For the first time
For the first time

And I've never run so far
I've never felt so strong
When I am where you are
I found where I belong
For the first time
For the first time

I can breathe for the first time
I can see for the first time
It's like you opened my eyes
I can feel my heart is coming alive
I feel alive
I can breathe for the first time
For the first time
For the first time
Oh Oh Oh
For the first time
For the first time
