Switchfoot – This is Your Life

This song has been playing in the back of my mind for a couple of days now.  Are you who you want to be?  If not, make the change!

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken

Don’t close your eyes,
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life are you who you want to be
This is your life are you who you want to be

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

And you had everything to lose

  3. Yes, we are all imperfect beings. There’s only one that led a perfect life, and we all fall short of Him, don’t we? Exactly!! We are all works in progress. I think it’s ridiculous to expect to change over night. Yep, all wee can do is try our best and pray. And as long as out heart’s are in the right place, you’re good. It’s a favorite quote of mine, as well!

    • Couldn’t agree more! Always striving to be more like Jesus. When I was growing up we always wore the WWJD wrist bands. Hope you’re having a good holiday, I’m spending it with family and celebrating three birthdays today.

  4. I haven’t heard a whole lot of Switchfoot, but I really like what I’ve heard so far. I love what they stand for, you know? Anyway, regarding your question: no, my life is not everything I dreamed it would be. And I’m not doing much to change it.

    I’m often reminded of Gandhi’s question, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

    • I agree! I love what they stand for. I think that we all have things that we need to change about ourselves. However, it takes time and lots of effort to do that. Too many people get discouraged because they can’t be “perfect.” It’s not about being perfect, but really about trying our best. I love the quote by Gandhi. Living that way he describes will take a person far.
