Switchfoot Always

This is the start, this is your heart

This is the day you were born

This is the sun, these are your lungs

This is the day you were born

And I am always yours

These are the scars deep in your heart

This is the place you were born

This is the hole where most of your soul comes ripping out

From the places you’ve been torn

And it is always yours

But I am always yours

Hallelujah, I’m caving in

Hallelujah, I’m in love again

Hallelujah, I’m a wretched man

Hallelujah, every breath is a second chance

And it is always yours

And I am always yours

Switchfoot Fading West

Fading West with you

Fading West with you

The sun goes down for the summer

Mirror sky for the water

I am fading westward too

Fading west with you

Life won’t sing like I want it

The traffic post modern sonic

The traffic hums a dirty tune

Fading West with you

Heading back to the west coast

Where I’m from

I’m heading back to the left coast

Where I belong.

California’s calling me back home

Fading West with you

Keep my mind over matter

Cause I’ve seen my hopes shatter

They told me lies I thought were true

Fading West with you

The sun goes down

We were already going

Heading back to the west coast

Where I’m from

I’m heading back to the left coast

Where I belong.

California’s calling me back home

Fading West with you

When I’m out on my own

Feel like I’m caving in

When you leave me alone

I start to wonder

Where have I been

Where have I been

Heading back to the west coast

Where I’m from

I’m heading back to the left coast

Where I belong.

California’s calling me back home

Fading West with you

Fading West with you

Fading West with you

Switchfoot Living Is Simple

Living is simple

It’s gravity

Gravity isn’t so hard

Living is simple

It’s entropy

Entropy, falling apart

I’m falling apart again

Living is simple

And breathing is easy

It’s easy to do

Living is simple

And losing is easy

I’m losing my cool

I’m losing my cool again

All will be made well

Will be made well

Will be made well

Will be well

Is this fiction?

Is this fiction?

Hope has given himself to the worst

Is this fiction or divine comedy?

Where the last of the last finish first

Living is simple

Living is dying

Your mercy, Your mercy

Is how I believe

Living id dying

I can’t understand it

I’m down on my knees

Confessing my needs again

I’ve had my choices

I’ve chosen today

I’ve had my choices

The choices remain

Switchfoot I Turn Everything Over

Monday found me on my knees again

Breathing you in

To blur the lines that mark where I begin

And where you end

No use in trying to pretend

Come take me again

‘Cause rumor has it I’m not who I’ve been

Come define me

What can we do

If the rumors are true?

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

There’s nothing left of me to defend

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

The evidence convicts the hollow man

After looking inside

To my dismay I find I’m just one of them

‘Cause I’m an already but not yet resurrected fallen man

Come break this limbo

And I know you know just who I’ve been

Come define me

What can we do

If the rumors are true?

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

There’s nothing left of me to defend

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

Rumor has it you love me

Rumor has it the world spins upside down

Rumor has it my only hope is you

And the rumors are true

I turn everything over

What can we do

If the rumors are true?

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

There’s nothing left of me to defend

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

There’s nothing left of me to defend

I turn everything over

Turn myself in

Switchfoot New Year’s Day

They tell me the best in life is free

And I feel spent so I guess it means that the best is mine

But it doesn’t seem so

While I’m out here confessing things

All last year got the best of me

And I’m not sure I’m ready for another go

It’s New Year’s Day

Euphoria’s gone, it’s time to move on

I have to believe we can change

When the notes come out wrong

Stop singing along

We can’t be the same old thing

It’s New Year’s Day

I’m tearing down the past years off the wall (it’s New Year’s Day)

I’m coming at you like a wrecking ball (it’s New Year’s Day)

And I think I’m gonna make it after all

It’s New Year’s Day

I said sometimes I can’t stand myself

And most times I wish I could be anyone else

When I look in the mirror my eyes are getting old

And she said yeah I see your point of view

But it could be just a phase that you’re going through

And it feels like we could make something beautiful

It’s New Year’s Day

I’m tearing down the past years off the wall (it’s New Year’s Day)

I’m coming at you like a wrecking ball (it’s New Year’s Day)

And I think I’m gonna make it after all

It’s New Year’s Day

Euphoria’s gone, it’s time to move on

I have to believe we can change

When the notes come out wrong

Stop singing along

We can’t be the same old thing

It’s New Year’s Day

I’m tearing down the past years off the wall (it’s New Year’s Day)

I’m coming at you like a wrecking ball (it’s New Year’s Day)

And I think I’m gonna make it after all

Yeah I think we’re gonna make it after all

And I think I’m gonna make it after all

It’s New Year’s Day

I think we’re gonna make it after all (it’s gonna be okay)

Yeah I think we’re gonna make it after all (it’s gonna okay)

Yeah I think we’re gonna make it after all

It’s New Year’s Day

Switchfoot Dirty Second Hands

Please don’t be so naive

You know you’re not fooling anyone

You’re not as tough as you think

With dirty second hands,

The dirty second hands

Can’t get nothing for free

It becomes so predictable

You start fighting to breathe

The dirty second hands,

Your dirty second hands

Here’s the face of everything that breaks you down

Now you face the face of everything that breaks you down

With an army of me

We invent our own enemies

Man verses machine

And the dirty second hands

In the land of the free

And the home of the remedy

The old clock is a thief

With dirty second hands

Are you really as tough as you think

You blink and you’re over the brink

You bleed but you’re blood runs pink

With dirty second hands, dirty second hands

You’re not quite as tough as you thought

You bought the American rot

The very seed that you thought you shot

With dirty second hands, dirty second hands

You might be right,

The fight might be right inside you

The blind leading the lied to,

Tonight maybe you bind you with dirty second hands

Switchfoot Dare You To Move

Welcome to the planet

Welcome to existence

Everyone’s here

Everyone’s here

Everybody’s watching you now

Everybody waits for you now

What happens next

What happens next

[Chorus]

I dare you to move

I dare you to move

I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor

I dare you to move

I dare you to move

Like today never happened

Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout

Welcome to resistance

The tension is here

Tension is here

Between who you are and who you could be

Between how it is and how it should be

[Chorus]

Maybe redemption has stories to tell

Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell

Where can you run to escape from yourself?

Where you gonna go?

Where you gonna go?

Salvation is here

I dare you to move

I dare you to move

I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor

I dare you to move

I dare you to move

Like today never happened

Today never happened

Today never happened

Today never happened before

Switchfoot Thrive

Been fighting things that I can’t see

Like voices coming from the inside of me and

Like doing things I find hard to believe in

Am I myself or am I dreaming?

I’ve been awake for an hour or so

Checking for a pulse but I just don’t know

Am I a man when I feel like a ghost?

The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

A steering wheel don’t mean you can drive

A warm body don’t mean I’m alive

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

Feel like I travel but I never arrive

I wanna thrive not just survive

I come alive when I hear you singing

But lately I haven’t been hearing a thing and

I get the feeling that I’m in between

A machine and a man who only looks like me

I try and hide it and not let it show

But deep down inside me I just don’t know

Am I a man when I feel like a hoax?

The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

A steering wheel don’t mean you can drive

A warm body don’t mean I’m alive

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

Feel like I travel but I never arrive

I wanna thrive not just survive

I’m always close, but I’m never enough

I’m always in line, but I’m never in love

I get so down, but I won’t give up

I get so down, but I won’t give up

I get so down, but I won; t give up

Been fighting things that I can’t see

Like voices coming from the inside of me and

Like doing things I find hard to believe in

Am I myself or am I dreaming?

Am I myself or am I dreaming?

Am I myself or am I dreaming?

Thrive, thrive, thrive, yeaah, thrive

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

A steering wheel don’t mean you can drive

A warm body don’t mean I’m alive

No, I’m not alright

I know that I’m not right

Feel like I travel but I never arrive

I wanna thrive not just survive

I wanna thrive not just survive

Yeah yeah

Feel like I travel but I never arrive

I wanna thrive not just survive

I wanna thrive not just survive

I wanna thrive not just survive

Feels like I travel but I never arrive

I wanna thrive not just survive

Switchfoot My Place In The Sunlight

I was on the edge of falling off the pages for me

Start to feel like I was lost in a different plot of a different story

Dark side, ain’t gonna steal my sunlight, I start to feel like

Get the notion that I still got my whole life

Just waiting for me, waiting for me

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I want my face in the daylight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

The clouds will come when the dark goes through

The past can’t stay, it’s gonna pass right through

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

Let me, let me, let me go find the light of day, go and chase these clouds away

Let me, let me go hear the sunlight say, I’m gonna chase these clouds away

Dark side, ain’t gonna steal my sunlight, I start to feel like

Let me, let me go hear the sunlight say

It’s just waiting for me, waiting for me

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I want my face in the daylight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

The clouds will come when the dark goes through

The past can’t stay, it’s gonna pass right through

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I got the dark disposition

Trying to find my own demolition

To chase these clouds away

I ain’t asking for no ones permission

To find myself a sunnier position

To chase these clouds away

Chase these clouds away

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I want my face in the daylight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

The clouds will come when the dark goes through

The past can’t stay, it’s gonna pass right through

I want my place in the sunlight

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna find it

Switchfoot Learning To Breathe

Hello, good morning, how you do?

What makes your rising sun so new?

I could use a fresh beginning too

All of my regrets are nothing new

So this is the way that I say I need You

This is the way that I’m

[Chorus:]

Learning to breathe

I’m learning to crawl

I’m finding that You and You alone can break my fall

I’m living again, awake and alive

I’m dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning, how you been?

Yesterday left my head kicked in

I never, never thought that

I would fall like that

Never knew that I could hurt this bad

[Chorus]

So this is the way I say I need You

This is the way that I say I love You

This is the way that I say I’m Yours

This is the way, this is the way

[Chorus]

Hello good morning how you do?
