Cry - Switchfoot










I'll always remember
It was late afternoon
It lasted forever
And ended so soon (yea)
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark gray sky
I was changed

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was now that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

The moment that I saw you cry

It was late in september
And I've seen you before (and you were)
You were always the cold one
But I was never that sure
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark gray sky
I was changed

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was now that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

I wanted to hold you
I wanted to make it go away
I wanted to know you
I wanted to make your everything, all right....

I'll always remember...
It was late afternoon...
In places no one will find...

In places no one will find
All your feelings so deep inside (forever was in your eyes)
It was now that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry




Concrete Girl - Switchfoot










Bleeding thoughts
Cracking boulder
Don't fall over
Fake your laughter
Burn the tear
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Way up here
We stand on shoulders
Growing colder
Laugh or cry
I won't mind
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Immovable shadows
Concrete girl
They'll rock your world
To nothing
And they're swimming
Around again, again
And they're swimming
Around again, again
And they're swimming
Around the concrete girl

Catch your breath
Like four leaf clover
Hand it over

Scream to no one
Take your time
Sing it louder,
Twist and shout

Nothing to run from
Is worse than something
And all your fears
Of nothing
And they're swimming around
Again, again
And they're swimming around
The concrete girl

Concrete girl
Don't fall down
In this broken world
Around you
Concrete girl
Don't fall down
Don't fall down
My cocnrete girl

Don't stop thinking
Don't stop feeling

One step away
From where we were
And one step back
To nothing
And we're standing on top
Of our hopes and fears
And we're fighting for words now
Concrete girl
And we're swimming around
Again, again
And we're swimming around now
Concrete girl




Company Car - Switchfoot










Mike was right when he said I'd put up
A fight to be someone, a fight to be me
But see now, I'm down
Under the pavement
Of Capitals hills and lowercase people
As time rolls by my dreams have become
That which is attainable
Now what I'm looking for!

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car

(Hey)I'm the king of things I've always despised
I'm the gingerbread man who got eaten alive
I'm half-baked! I'm fake!
But see I've got hotels on
Park Place and Boardwalk
And two hundred bucks
I pass go but, oh! Life's taken it's toll
Have I won monopoly to forfeit my soul?

All the king’s horses
At the foot of the wall
They're taking pictures of
The man who's lost all of his
Masks of pretension
He's got two faces left
His is the one that he hides
On the left behind that smile

Hiding tears and fear
That burn like an engine
It drives him away
From the ones that he loves
Mike was right:
"Hey Mike! We're one and the same;
We're the faceless combatants in the loneliest game"
Ah but say, I'll wave as I'm driving by
With that smirk in my eye, yelling
"Hey, I'm something man, check me out!"




Circles - Switchfoot










Another day
Another sunrise
Another factory call
Another night
Another sunset
Another freefall

In my life
In my own purpose
Within the weakness
Within the weakness

Spinning out in circles
In circles, in circles
Spinning out in circles
In circles, in circles

Another day
Another lifetime
Another engine stalls
Another line
Another freeway
Another freefall

In my life
In my own purpose
Within the weakness
Within the weakness

Spinning out in circles
In circles, in circles
Spinning out in circles
In circles, in circles
In circles, in circles

I've lost all that I wanted to leave
I've lost all that I wanted to be
Don't that there's nothing this true
Don't believe in this modern machine
The modern machine

Circles

Spinning, Spinning
In circles, in circles
Spinning out in circles
In circles, in circles




Chem 6a - Switchfoot










"Nothing but a chemical in my head
Nothing but laziness
Cause I don't wanna read the book
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else my age

I think I'd rather play around
And I think I'd rather watch TV
Cause I don't wanna face my fears
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else

Because I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna see this now
It's all wrong but it's alright

I don't know what love is
I don't know who I am
And if I ever want to find out
I'll watch the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everyone else my age
I don't wanna change the world
And I don't wanna be someone
I don't wanna write the book
I'll make the movie
Cause it's not me
I'm just like everybody else"




C'mon C'mon - Switchfoot










You've been living life like it's a sequel
and your already bored with the plot
as if the cast and the score
are more money than before
But the script and the backdrop are stock

We've got the rest of our lives to regret
All the words that were said here tonight
but i bet that the morning, in the morning
You'll find us in bloom

So C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's not be our parents
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's follow this trough
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Everything's waiting

We will rise with the wings of the dawn
When everythings new [2x]

Ever size up with summer sun?
Let these songs awaken the dawn
Let us breath every breath
like a breath to be kept
Let us breath it all in till it's gone

We've got the rest of our lives to live out
All these dreams we stay up tonight talking about
In the morning, start hoping, to not be too soon

So C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's abandon this darkness
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's follow this through
Yeah so C'mon C'mon C'mon
Everything's waiting
We will live like fire and gold
when everything's new [8x]




Burn Out Bright - Switchfoot










Does it have to start with a broken heart
Broken dreams and bleeding parts
We were young and world was clear
Young ambition disappears
I swore it would never come to this
The average, the obvious

I'm still discontented down here
I'm so discontented

If we only got one try
If we've only got one life
If time was never on our side
Before I die I want to burn out bright

So a spark ignites
In time and space
To make it through this human race
You fight and crawl your way back home
But you're running the wrong way

The future is a question mark
With kerosene electric sparks
There's still fire in you yet
Yeah there's still fire in you

If we only got one try
If we've only got one life
If time was never on our side
Before I die I want to burn out bright

I can't clean up the mess I've made
I can't clean up the mess I've made

Can't sleep in the bed I've made
Can't sleep in the bed I've made

If we only got one try
If we've only got one life
If time was never on our side




Bullet Soul - Switchfoot










Oooh, I want to sing one for all the dreamers,
Oooh, I'm singing this one for the sparks,
Oooh, here's one for the friction makers,
Oooh, we are the bleeding hearts.
Don't care whoever you are.

- Chorus -
We rise and fall together,
Our hearts still beat below.
You can't stand by forever,
You're a kid with a bullet soul.
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?

Oooh, I wanna turn up the radiation
Oooh, I wanna glow in the dark
Oooh, Love is the one true innovation
Oooh, Love is the only art
Don't let 'em blow it apart

- Chorus -
We rise and fall together,
Our hearts still beat below.
You can't stand by forever,
You're a kid with a bullet soul.
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?
Oh, are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?

Oooh, We are the children of the scar
Oooh, We got to start from the start
Yeah, yeah

- Chorus -
We rise and fall together,
Our hearts still beat below.
You can't stand by forever,
You're a kid with a bullet soul.
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?




Bottom Of A Bottle By Smile Empty Soul - Switchfoot











Been scared and lonely
I've asked myself
Is something wrong with you
My girlfriend told me
I need some time alone to deal with issues

Something makes me carry on
It's difficult to understand
What I always wanna find

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom
Of a bottle

You always call me
And ask me how I make it throught the day
I'm always fallin
I guess it's just god's way of
Making me big

Something makes me carry on
It's difficult to understand
What I always wanna find

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom
Of a bottle

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom
Of a bottle

And I,
I wonder why I try
And I,
Wonder why I bother
And I,
I wonder why I cry
Why I,
I go through all this trouble

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom
Of a bottle

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom
Of a bottle



Bomb - Switchfoot










With blankness staring back at me
And gleaming from the pages
I feel the fear of apathy
Gripping me, pushing me on top of everything
In the corner with a view
I turn off the fluorescent tubes

This is the bomb that I've been waiting for
Living for
You've finally lit the fuse that's in my head
Yes, you've finally lit the fuse that's in my head

With nothingness on top of me
Bleeding from my folder
Only you can stop the emptiness
Don't let it take me over

I've been sinking now
Further into nothing
I've been waiting long
Longer than for something




begins - Switchfoot










To an aged man God spoke
Words that sounded like a joke
Soon his wife would bear a child
A saying hard to reconcile
So he asked, can this thing be
Can a nation spring from me
With a body grown so old
In a word this man was told

CHORUS
Your life begins with God
Your love begins with God
Your hopes and your dreams
And your plans begin with God
Your life begins with God
Your love begins with God
Your hopes and your dreams
And your plans begin with God

From a valley full of bones
To a man of God, well known
Came a vision strange but true
Mighty things the Lord would do
He would breathe them back to life
His command caused them to rise
Like the nation He would raise
To the glory of His praise

(Chorus)

I was standing on the edge of the world
Hopelessly alone in the dark
In the beginning all was empty and void
In my mind, my soul, my heart of hearts
The Creator came and moved in my life
He spoke and turned my darkness to light
Day by day He's rearranging my ways
He's my Lord, my God, my King

To a leper on his face
To a woman's dark disgrace
To a prisoner's empty night
To a blind man's quest for sight
To a mother's boy lying dead
To a beggar's plea for bread
To a lame man's crippled bones
To a stranger's journey home

(Chorus)




Beautiful Letdown - Switchfoot










It was a beautiful letdown
When I crashed and burned
When I found myself alone, unknown and hurt
It was a beautiful letdown
The day I knew,
That all the riches
This world had to offer me will never do.

In a world full of bitter pain,
and bitter doubts,
I was trying so hard to fit in,
Fit in, until I found out

I don't belong here (I don't belong)
I don't belong here (I don't belong)
I will carry a cross and a song
Where I don't belong
I don't belong

It was a beautiful letdown
When you found me here
Yeah, for once in a rare blue moon
I see everything clear
I'll be a beautiful letdown
That's what I'll forever be
And though it may cost my soul
I'll sing for free

We're still chasing our tails
In the rising sun
In our dark water planet still spinning
In a direction no one wins
No one's won.

See, I don't belong here
(I don't belong)
Well, I don't belong here, I don't belong
I will carry a cross
With a song where I don't belong
I don't belong
I don't belong here (I don't belong)
No, I don't belong here,
I don't belong
I'm gonna set side
And set sail
For the kingdom come, kingdom come
Your kingdom come
Won't you let me down, yeah
Let my foolish pride forever let me down

Ah, Easy living, you're not much like the name
Easy dying, you look just about the same
Would you please take me off your list
Easy living please c'mon and let me down

We are a beautiful letdown
Painfully uncool
The church of the dropouts
The losers, the sinners,
The failures, and the fools
What a beautiful letdown
Are we salt in the wound
Hey, let us sing one true tune

I don't belong here (I don't belong)
It feels like I don't belong here, yeah
It goes like I don't belong here
I don't belong (I don't belong)
Won't you let me down (I don't belong)
C'mon and let me down (I don't belong)
You always let me down (I don't belong)
So glad that I'm let down
(I don't belong)
C'mon and let me down (I don't belong)
Cuz I don't belong here
Won't you let me down!




Awakening - Switchfoot










Face down with the LA curbside ending
In ones and zeros.
Downtown was the perfect place to hide.
The first star that I saw last night was a headlight
of a man-made sky, but
Man-made never made our dreams collide.

(chorus)
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening
Here we are now with the desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening
Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep
About a dream, We're awakening

Last week found me living for nothing but deadlines,
With my dead beat sky but, this town doesn't look the same tonight
These dreams started singing to me out of nowhere
And in all my life I don't know that I ever felt so alive, alive

(chorus)

I want to wake up kicking and screaming
I want to wake up kicking and screaming
I wanna know that my heart still beating,
It's beating, I'm bleeding.
I want to wake up kicking and screaming
I want to live like I know what I'm leaving
I wanna know that my heart still beating,
It's beating, it's beating, it's beating, I'm bleeding

(chorus)
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening
Here we are now with the desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening
Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep
About a dream, We're awakening dream
We're awakening




Amy's Song - Switchfoot











Amy's gone
And time rolls on
How far? how fast? how long?

The last time we saw Amy
She was headed for the shore
Fighting off the volatile gray skies

She said now begins forever
And that no one knows their time
We bid farewell not knowing
That might be our last good-bye

Amy was a fighter
She cut like Casius Clay
She burned like a fire
Despite these rains

Where time was a question
She only knew one song:
She's singing, "how far, how fast, how
long?"

Salvation is a fire
In the midnight of the soul
It lights up like a can of gasoline

Yeah, she's a freedom fighter
She's a stand up kind of girl
She's out to start a fire
In a bar code plastic world
When everything stops moving
And I stop to catch my breath
And ride my train of thought
All the way round

My thoughts return to Amy
And the fire she's begun
She came when we were freezing
And left us burning up



Ammunition - Switchfoot










Blame it on what you've been through
Blame it on what you're into
Blame it on your religions
Blame it on your politicians

We've been blowing up, we're the issue
It's our condition
We've been blowing up,we're the issue
The detonation
We've been blowing up, we're the issue
We're ammunition, we're ammunition
We're ammunition
We are the fuse and ammunition

I have no generation, show me my motivation
One world, one desperation, one hope and one salvation

We've been blowin up, we're the issue
It's our condition
We've been blowin up, we're the issue
The detonation
We've been blowin up, we're the issue
We're ammunition
We're ammunition
We're ammunition
We are the fuse and the ammunition

Look what a mess we've made of love
Look what a mess we've made of love
Look what a mess we've made,
We've got ourselves to blame
Look what a bomb we've made of love

We've been blowin up, we're the issue
It's our condition
We've been blowin up we're the issue
The detonation
We've been blowin up we're the issue
We're ammunition
We're ammunition
We're ammunition
We are the fuse and the ammunition




American Dream - Switchfoot











When success is equated with excess
The ambition for excess wrecks us
When top of the mind becomes the bottom line
When success is equated with excess

If you're time ain't be nothing for money
I start to feel really bad for you honey
Maybe honey put you're money where your mouth's been running
If you're time ain't be nothing but money

I want out of this machine
It doesn't feel like freedom

(chorus)
This ain't my American dream
I want to live and die for bigger things
I'm tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

When success is equated with excess
When we're fighting for the beamer, the lexus
As the heart and soul breathing the company goals
Where success is equated with excess

I want out of this machine
It doesn't feel like freedom

(chorus)

Cause baby's always talkin 'bout a ring
And talk has always been the cheapest thing
Is it true would you do what I want you to
If I show up with the right amount of bling?

Like a puppet on a monetary string
Maybe we've been caught singing
Red, white, blue, and green
But that ain't my America,
That ain't my American dream



Amateur Lovers - Switchfoot










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 that you can settle down

We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again

You tried to play it down
But it never stuck
I tried to build 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
Driving home on the 405

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 that you can settle down
We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again

We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again
We're just amateur lovers
With amateur friends

I can tell you what you're thinking now
Before you think that you can settle down
Our lovin' isn't gonna burn us out

We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again




Always Something - Switchfoot










Theres always something in the way.
Theres always something gettting through.
Its not me, its You. Its You.

Sometimes ignorance reads true.
Hope is not in what I know.
It's not in me, It's in You.
It's in You.

It's all I know.
It's all I know.
It's all I know.

I find peace when I'm confused.
I find hope when I'm let down.
Not in me, in You.
It's in You.

Hope to lose myself for good.
I hope to find it in the end.
Not in me, in You.
In You.

It's all I know. It's all I know. It's all I know.
In You, in You. It's in You. In You.

Theres always something in the way.
Theres always something getting through.
It's not me. It's You.




Always - Switchfoot










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.




Adding to the Noise - Switchfoot











What's it gonna take
to slow us down
the 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 the 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 don't know
what they're gonna think of next
genetic enginers of the most high tech.
A couple new ways
to fall in debt.
I'm a nervous wreck but I'll bet
that that T.V. set
tells us what we want 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

4:12 - Switchfoot











You've been having trouble staying asleep
You been waking up at 4:12
You roll the voices over in your head
Then you try to put them neatly on the shelf

You watch the sun rise
Saw the darkness had no choice before the dawn
With your own eyes
And then you broke out laughing from a yawn

I'm so sorry I've been so down
I started doubting things could ever turn around
And I began to believe that all we are is material
It's nonsensical

So you walk outside and everything's new
You're looking at the world with new eyes
As if you'd never seen the sky before this blue
As if you've never seen the sky in your whole life
And then the phone rings
As it turns out you are already late
And now you're wondering
Is peace just a temporary state

Waiting tables and parking cars
You've been selling cell phones at the shopping mall
And you began to believe that all you are is material
It's nonsensical

I'm so sorry I've been so down
I started doubting things could ever turn around
But I still can't believe that all we are
And that all of our dreams are nothing more than material
Souls aren't built of stone
Sticks and bones

Souls aren't built of stone
Souls aren't built of stone, sticks and bones



24 - Switchfoot






Twenty-four oceans
Twenty-four skies
Twenty-four failures
And twenty-four tries
Twenty-four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
With twenty-four drop outs
At the end of the day

Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing 'Spirit,
take me up in arms with You'
And I'm not who I thought I was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing 'Spirit,
take me up in arms with You'

There's twenty-four reasons
To admit that I'm wrong
With all my excuses
Still twenty-four strong

See, I'm not copping out
Not copping out
Not copping out
When you're raising the dead in me

Oh, oh
I am the second man
Oh, oh
I am the second man now
Oh, I am the second man now
And you're raising these...

Twenty-four voices
With twenty-four hearts
All of my symphonies
In twenty-four parts
But I want to be one today
Centered and true
I'm singing 'Spirit take me up in arms with You'
You're raising the dead in me

Oh, oh
I am the second man
Oh, oh
I am the second man now
Oh
I am the second man now
And you're raising the dead in me
Yeah

I wanna see miracles
To see the world change
Wrestled the angel for more than a name
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I'm singing 'Spirit, take me up in arms with You'
And you're raising the dead in me

Twenty-four oceans
With twenty-four hearts
All of my symphonies
With twenty-four parts
Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing 'Spirit,
take me up in arms with You'
I'm not copping out
Not copping out
