On Fire 13 July 2006

Posted by Sasha in Music & Artists, The Frustrated Musician.

1I’m currently listening to this song for the nth time today. I’m addicted. I just might have memorised the lyrics by this time! Heh.

Anyway, I cheated and just decided to google the lyrics so I can check what the band, Switchfoot, was singing about. I was so intrigued as to why I’m drawn to the song because usually the reason I’d like a song is because I can relate to it so imagine my surprise when I find this:

They tell you where you need to go
They tell you when you need to leave.
They tell you what you need to know
They tell you who you need to be.

But everything inside you
knows there’s more than what you’ve heard
There’s so much more than empty conversations
filled with empty words

And you’re on fire
when he’s near you
You’re on fire when he speaks
You’re on fire burning at these mysteries

Give me one more time around
give me one more chance to see,
Give me everything you are
Give me one more chance to be near you.

When everything inside me
Looks like everything i hate
You are the hope i have for change
You are the only chance I’ll take

You guessed it — this is now considered a current favourite.

I also liked the carrier single and album title, The Beautiful Letdown.

“I don’t belong here..”

Can you guess what mood I’m in right now? I bet $5 you can’t. Teehee.
