Switchfoot We Are One Tonight

Check!

Tonight!

Tonight!

All rise

All fall

I’ll fail you all

We built these cities to stand so tall

We’ve lost our walls

I don’t want to lose it, coming down

With the whole world upside-down

I don’t have a soul to trust in now

With the whole world upside-down

We are one, tonight!

And we’re singing it out!

We are one, tonight!

And we’re dreaming out loud!

Though the world is flawed

These scars will heal

We are one, tonight!

Tonight!

Tonight!

Two eyes

One tongue

I’ve come

Undone

I’m no victim

I paid these dues

I came to lose

I don’t want to fight about it now

With the whole world upside-down

I don’t have a soul to trust in, now

With the whole world upside-down

We are one, tonight!

And we’re singing it out!

We are one, tonight!

And we’re dreaming out loud!

Though the world is flawed

These scars will heal

We are one, tonight!

Tonight!

Tonight!

Tonight!

Tonight!

Tonight!

I don’t want to lose a common ground

With the whole world upside-down

I don’t want to fight about it now

And the world was burning out

Let’s slow the evening down

Slow it down

Slow down

Please slow down

Down

Down

The stars are comin’ out!

We are one

We are one

We are one

We are one tonight

We are one tonight

And were singing it out

We are one tonight

And were dreaming out loud

Though the world is flawed,

These scars will heal!

Switchfoot Yet

All attempts have failed

All my heads are tails

She’s got teary eyes

I’ve got reasons why

I’m losing ground and gaining speed

I’ve lost myself or most of me

I’m headed for the final precipice

But you haven’t lost me yet

No, you haven’t lost me yet

I’ll sing until my heart caves in

No, you haven’t lost me yet

These days pass me by

I dream with open eyes

Nightmares haunt my days

Visions blur my nights

I’m so confused

What’s true of false

What’s fact or fiction after all

I feel like I’m an apparition’s pet

But you haven’t lost me yet

No you haven’t lost me yet

I’ll run until my heart caves in

No, you haven’t lost me yet

If it doesn’t break

If it doesn’t break

If it doesn’t break

If it doesn’t break your heart

It isn’t love

If it doesn’t break your heart

It’s not enough

It’s when you’re breaking down

With your insides coming out

That’s when you find out what your heart is made of

And you haven’t lost me yet but

No you haven’t lost me yet

I’ll sing until my heart caves in

No, you haven’t lost me yet

Cause you haven’t lost me yet

Switchfoot Back To The Beginning Again

I can feel it building up inside

The images that play inside my mind

A dreams that I’ve been dreaming all my life

The colors that live outside of the lines

But dreams aren’t all I hide beneath this skin

The cord is cut, the fears and doubts begin

My hope is anchored on the other side

With the colors that live outside of the lines

And the oceans roar

And the wheel’s in spin

And the old chorus soars

Bring me back, bring me back to the beginning again

With the corrugated LA harbor stacks

With the weight of these machines across my back

I know a mountain road where time unwinds

But I’m busy living in a single-file line

And it all just sounds like poison on my ears

The background noise makes your voice so hard to hear

So I grit my teeth and straighten up my spine

I’m stuck in traffic on a dotted yellow line

And my heart is yours

And what a broken place it’s in

But you’re what I’m running for

And I want to feel the wind at my back again

Back to the beginning again

Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again

Back to the beginning again

Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again

And my heart is yours

And what a broken place it’s in

But you’re what I’m running for

And I want to feel the wind at my back again

Back to the beginning again

Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind at my back again

Back to the beginning again

Back to the beginning again

I want to feel the wind

I want to feel the wind

I want to feel the wind at my back again

Switchfoot Oh! Gravity.

There’s a fracture in the color bar

In the backseat of a parked car

By the liquor store where the streetlight

Keep you company ’til the next night

In the same town, there’s the same scar

In the same glow of the liquor store

By the freeway, where the headlight

Keep her company ’til the next night

Oh! Gravity.

Why can’t we seem to keep it together?

Sons of my enemies,

Why can’t we seem to keep it together?

In the back room of the Pentagon

There’s a thin man with a line drawn

With a red jaw and a red bite

Watch the headline on the next night

Why this tragedy?

Why can’t we seem to keep it together?

In the fallout, the fallout

We found out the hype won’t get you through

We’re connected, connected

I meant it, the hype won’t get you through

Switchfoot Blinding Light

Hey boy, don’t believe them

Their old lies never could come true

Hey boy, don’t believe them

Everything that they told you to

Hey boy, don’t believe them

We’re the nation that eats our youth

Hey boy, don’t believe them

None of us are bulletproof

Yeah

Deep down there’s a boy inside

Asleep, waiting for the sun to rise

Wake up, wake up

Still looking for the blinding light

Still looking for the reason why

Still looking for the sun to shine

Take me higher and higher

All my life I’ve been living in the darkest night

Still looking for the blinding light

To take me higher and higher

Hey girl, be yourself now

Don’t believe what they told you to

Hey girl, be yourself now

Your skin’s more than a pin-up suit

Hey girl, don’t conform now

No one else’s got soul like you

Hey girl, you’re a strong one

But none of us are bulletproof

Yeah

Deep down there’s a hope inside

You got wings but you’re scared to fly

Wake up, wake up

Still looking for the blinding light

Still looking for the reason why

Still looking for the sun to shine

Take me higher and higher

All my life I’ve been living in the darkest night

Still looking for the sun to shine

Take me higher and higher

Deep down there’s a hope inside

Brighter than the fears in my mind

I keep looking for the blinding light

It’s a hope that keeps me alive

Wake up, wake up

Keep looking for the blinding light

Keep looking for the reason why

Keep looking for the sun to shine

Take me higher and higher

All my life I’ve been living in the darkest night

Still looking for the sun to rise

To take me higher and higher

Blinding light, the blinding light

Yeah I’ve been waiting all my life

To take me higher and higher

Blinding light, you’re the vision that gives me sight

All the blinding light, take me higher and higher

Switchfoot I Won’t Let You Go

When it feels like surgery

And it burns like third degree

And you wonder what is it worth?

When your insides breaking in

And you feel that ache again

And you wonder

What’s giving birth?

If you could let the pain of the past go

Of your soul

None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down

You could learn to trust me somehow

I swear, that I won’t let you go

If you could only let go your doubts

If you could just believe in me now

I swear, that I won’t let you go

I won’t let you go

When your fear is currency

And you feel that urgency

You want peace but there’s war in your head

Maybe that’s where life is born

When our façades are torn

Pain gives birth to the promise ahead

If you could let the pain of the past go

Of your soul

None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down

If you could learn to trust me somehow

I swear, that I won’t let you go

If you could only let go your doubts

If you could just believe in me now

I swear, that I won’t let you go

I won’t let you go

I’ll always be by your side

Yeah

If you could only let your guard down

If you could learn to trust me somehow

I swear, that I won’t let you go

If you could only let go your doubts

If you could just believe in me now

I swear, that I won’t let you go

(I won’t let you go)

I won’t let you go

(I won’t let you go)

There ain’t no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart

There ain’t no strength that’s strong enough that could tear this love apart

Never gonna let you go

Never gonna let you go

No I won’t let you go

Switchfoot Amateur Lovers

Everyone I know

Needs love like drugs

Like a common cold

We could never shrug

My baby and me

We’re missing the same stuff

We’ve all got a disease

Deficiency of love

Every day we still try

Every night we still cry

Driving home on the 805

We don’t know what we’re doing

We do it again

We’re just amateur lovers

With amateur friends

I can tell you what you’re thinking now

Before you think it you can settle down

We don’t know what we’re doing

Let’s do it again!

Try to play it down

But it never stuck

I tried to bail this town

I’m getting no such luck

When nobody’s around

I keep my eyes on the clock

There ain’t a cure I’ve found

In all my times around this block

Everyday we still try

Every night we still cry

We drive it home on the 405

I can tell you what you’re thinking now

Before you think it you can settle down

Our lovin’ isn’t gonna burn us out

Professional!?!

Switchfoot Daisy

Daisy, give yourself away

Lookup at the rain

The beautiful display

Of power and surrender

Giving us today

And she gives herself away

Rain, another rainy day

Comes up from the ocean

Give herself away

She comes down easy

On rich and debt the same

And she gives herself away

Let it go

Daisy, Let it go

Open up your fist

This fallen world

Doesn’t hold your interest

It doesn’t hold your soul

Daisy, let it go

Pain, give yourself a name

Call yourself contrition

Avarice of blame

Giving isn’t easy

Neither is the rain

When she gives herself away

Daisy, why another day?

Why another sunrise

Who will take the blame

For all redemptive motion

And every rainy day

When he gives himself away

Let it go

Daisy, let it go

Open up your fist

This fallen world

It doesn’t hold your interest

It doesn’t hold your soul

Daisy, let it go

Let it go

Let it go

Let it go

And you let it go, go

Let it go

Let it go

Let it go, go

Let it go

Let it go

Switchfoot Take My Fire

Everyday enemy try to get the best of me

The enemy under my skin

Everyday Enemy

My fatal flaw anatomy feeling like I just can’t win

Sometimes I wish I didn’t feel that much

Sometimes I wish I didn’t need that touch

Everyday my enemy pretend to be a friend to me

No matter what state I’m in

But you’re never going to take my fire

I cannot not be tamed

No you never going to take my fire

It’s burning in my veins

You say the world is changing

But I still burn the same

No you never going to take my fire, take my fire

Let me burn now

The safety that you’re selling me

One day be the death of me

Face like I just saw ghosts

Images on the box again

Taking up all the oxygen

Tell me how we sunk this low

Ain’t it coming ain’t the end in sight

To steal it back like a thief in the night

There’s my own sworn enemy

Faking and pretend to be

A wolf in a sheepskin coat

But you’re never going to take my fire

In spite of all your rain

No you never going to take my fire, take my fire

I’m a fighter

A soul all nighter

I’m gonna recognize the truth

Gonna recognize a liar

You’re never gonna take my fire

True beginner

A loser and a winner

Part saint / part sinner

And all of me desire

You’re never gonna take my fire

I’m a giver

A one arrow quiver

I’ve been sending my regrets

Down the river of fire

You’re never gonna take my

My fire

A loose, live wire

I’m a one-shot rocket aiming higher and higher

And higher

Cause you’re never gonna take my fire

Ancient flame lit the spark back before I was young

When I’m speaking with the fire it’s my native tongue

No you never going to take my fire, take my fire

Let me burn now

Switchfoot Adding To The Noise

What’s it gonna take

to slow us down

to let the silence spin us around?

What’s it gonna take

to drop this town?

We’ve been spinning at the speed of sound.

Stepping out of those convenience stores

what could we want but more more more?

From the third world

to the corporate core

we are a symphony of modern humanity

If we’re adding to the noise

turn off this song

If we’re adding to the noise

turn off your stereo, radio, video

I dont know

what they’re gonna think of next

genetic engineers of the most high tech

A couple new ways

to fall into debt

I’m a nervous wreck but I’ll bet

that that T.V. set

tells us what we’ve wanted to hear

But none of these sound bites

are coming in clear

From the third world to the corporate ear

we are the symphony of modern humanity.
