02. Meant To Live

The Best Yet
by Switchfoot



 

Fumbling his confidence and wondering
Why the world has passed him by.
Hoping that he's bent for more
Than arguments and failed attempts to fly.

CHORUS
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside.

Dreaming about providence and
Whether mice and men have second tries.
Maybe we've been living with our eyes half open,
Maybe we've bent and broken.


CHORUS

We want more than this world's got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life.
We were meant to live

CHORUS

Written by Jonathan Foreman and Tim Foreman 2003 Meadowgreen Music Company / Sugar Pete Songs (ASCAP)

Behind the Song:
'A while back I read a TS Elliot poem called The Hollow Men. The imagery in the poem continues to haunt me: we are the hollow men/ we are the stuffed men... I look at our planet and I see a horrible, beautiful world... where love and hate breathe the same air. This is where we wake up everyday; this is where we live. Maybe the kid in the song is me, hoping that Im bent for more than arguments and failed attempts to fly. Something deep inside of me yearns for the beautiful, the true. I want more than what Ive been sold; I want to live life.' - Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
