Arcade Fire – Afterlife (Official Video)


Afterlife Oh my god, what an awful word And after all the breath, and the dirt, and the fires are burnt And after all this time And after all the ambulances go And after all the hangers on are done hanging on in the dead light of the afterglow I gotta know! Can we work it out? If we scream and shout ‘Till we work it out Can we, just work it out? Scream and shout ‘Till we work it out ‘Till we work it out ‘Till we work it out ‘Till we work it out ‘Till we work it out Afterlife I think I saw what happens next Oh it was just a glimps of you like looking through a window or shallow sea Could you see me? And after all this time It’s like nothing else we used to know And after all the hangers on are done hanging on in the dead light of the afterglow I’ve got to know! Can we work it out? If we scream and shout ‘Till we work it out Can we, just work it out? If we scream and shout ‘Till we work it out But you say “Ohhh ohhh oh oh oh.” When love is gone, where does is go? And you say “Ohh ohh oh oh oh” When love is gone Where does it go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go? And after this Can it last another night? After all the bad advice It had nothing at all to do with life I’ve gotta know! Can we work it out? Scream and shout ‘Till we work it out Can we, just work it out? Scream and shout ‘Till we work it out But you say “Ohhh ohhh oh oh oh” When love is gone Where does it go?

  1. Hermoso vídeo..cada vez que lo veo me emociona, es hermosa la idea que transmite. Gracias Pablo Soriano por su mensaje, excelente trabajo de los tres..el pequeño es muy tierno…

  2. Latinas give the best blowjobs. I visited a brothel in Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico when I was young and received the best head I’ve ever gotten. It was like god sucking my cock

  3. My boyfriend passed away last year and I dedicated him this song, I told him 'If this wouldn't work, I would look for you in another life'. This song is so powerful, so full of love and wishes, please don't erase it.

  4. Un video muy conmovedor que siempre trae lágrimas a los ojos, especialmente cuando perdiste a alguien que amas 🙁 Un gran cumplido especialmente para Pablo, este es uno de los videos musicales más hermosos que he visto y realmente He traducido este texto del alemán al español, espero que aún puedas reconocer algo que quiero decir 🙂

  5. What a beautiful film to accompany an amazing, haunting song. Very poignant and almost hard to watch without thinking of loss.

  6. Amo esta canción y video. En un momento de decisiones difíciles en mi vida, la escuchaba una y otra vez. La letra me confortaba y entonces fue natural decidir por lo realmente importante. Continuar. Six years after, thanks for this Arcade Fire.

  7. I really like this music video. To me its about emotionally dying after a divorce and asking where the hell you are after being without your love. You are dead in the afterlife stuck with memories. Great song.

  8. im here in 2019 at 5 in the morning! these comments are years old. this video is like his dreams in the basement, faded away and lost.

  9. No me esperaba un vídeo así desde que escuché la canción, me imaginaba algo mas psicodélico o algo así, no esperaba algo tan profundo💖 me encantó! Que buen vídeo.

    Felicidades🍃

  10. i just heard this song and saw the video for the first time. Have I been under a rock? Beautifully done

  11. Donde quiera q estés, quiero q sepas q yo si te veía. Te fuiste demasiado pronto y no pudimos conocernos. Hasta siempre

  12. Siempre escuché esta canción y me ponía nostálgica, pero definitivamente con el video tiene un mayor significado acerca de lo que es la vida al lado de las personas que uno ama, esto es arte, transmite ese sentimiento de dolor y de sanación

  13. Obviously this shudda been the ‘OFFICIAL’ video, amazing, amazing band🔊🔊 https://youtu.be/WrJSFNSjlI0

  14. The narrative of this video is so strong. But you have to watch it at least a hundred times to get everything. And at that point, you could write a whole novel about it… if you had the skill.
    so sad I don't have it…

  15. It took me forever to find love for this album, it's hard after an album like The Suburbs, which is in my top 10 of all time. Reflektor is miles ahead of Everything Now though. This song is great

  16. There's almost nothing on youtube I care about – less I find interesting. Of those few that matter to my life, there's a few that impact me and I consider defining. Then, there's this video, that I literally can't watch without crying like a child. I think people either feel it and understand what it feels like directly, or they haven't gotten old enough yet to understand. But every six months or so I think of it, and cry all over again.

  17. Arcade fire, una banda que toca el corazón con su música, los vídeos tienen algo que te mueve los sentimientos.

  18. I played this multiple times a day when my grandma died. I think it perfectly encompasses the feeling of heartbreak in all stages of our lives. The feeling of loss in a loved one. You still feel the love for them but you also sit there wondering where did it go?

  19. This album is still my favorite of Arcade Fire's
    Yall should listen to Running by Retrofile … Another great Canadian indie group!

  20. Showing the reality of many people around this globe… I1m from Brazil and I see everyday people like these strong and brave people. Congrats to all involved in this…

  21. This is one my my favorite bands one of the most beautiful songs this band has ever written, the video is completely compelling to me at this moment as I search for songs that with soul that I can connect because my mother had just past away not realizing how much I and my father relate to this as we try to move and grieve. 😪🙏😁❤👩‍🦳

  22. Afterlife, oh my God, what an awful word
    After all the breath and the dirt
    And the fires that burn
    And after all this time
    And after all the ambulances go
    And after all the hangers-on are done
    Hanging on to the dead lights
    Of the afterglow

    I've gotta know
    Can we work it out?
    We scream and shout 'till we work it out
    Can we just work it out?
    Scream and shout 'till we work it out?
    'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out
    'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out

    Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
    It was just a glimpse of you
    Like looking through a window
    Or a shallow sea
    Could you see me?
    And after all this time
    It's like nothing else we used to know
    After all the hangers-on are done
    Hanging on to the dead lights
    Of the afterglow

    I've gotta know

    Can we work it out?
    Let's scream and shout 'till we work it out
    Can we just work it out?
    If you scream and shout 'till we work it out?

    But you say
    Oh, when love is gone
    Where does it go?
    And you say
    Oh, when love is gone
    Where does it go?
    And where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?

    And after this
    Can it last another night?
    After all the bad advice
    Had nothing at all to do with life

    I've gotta know

    Can we work it out?
    Scream and shout 'till we work it out?
    Can we just work it out?
    Scream and shout 'till we work it out?

    But you say
    Oh, when love is gone
    Where does it go?
    And you say
    Oh, when love is gone
    Where does it go?
    Oh, we know it's gone
    Where did it go?
    Oh, we know it's gone
    Where did it go?
    And where do we go?

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

  23. By reading the comments I just realized that I’m not the only one in tears while listen to this song, and the video it’s heartbreaking… my husband showed me this song and its my favorite from ARcade fire.
