Is this the afterlife?
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife

Meaning

Love must go somewhere, even when the body decomposes. That is the basic problem with every debate on the afterlife: to some people it seems whimsical to assume there’s an actual place we go when we die.

It seems illogical to assume there is nothing beyond this physical universe when we humans have such an innate desire to search for meaning and such a craving to know what’s out there. Why are we designed this way? The argument circulates back to where it started.
