The theme in My Life Hereafter is that when we face hardship, sometimes our minds fill with a voice and most times those thoughts are not good to have. Sunel is bullied when she is little, she covets the lives of the rich people who live upon the hill in her small town, she has a crush on David, and her parents often fight.
Most times, we all have similar thoughts, even though our wishes may differ, the problem always seem insurmountable. Little do we know what is really going on in other people’s lives—the people we want to be like have their own inner demons or little man who sits on their shoulder and they are most probably begrudging someone else whose lives they envy.
The lyrics of the song say, “Fill my mind with peace, fill my heart with truth, fill my eyes with love and fill my joy with you. I'm desperate for you. You're all I desire, you're all I need, overflow in me.”
And, in the end, I do think all of that happened for Sunel. She realized she did not need anything else, besides to be loved.
