08. This Is Your Life

The Best Yet
by Switchfoot



 

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.
And today is all you'll ever have.
Don't close your eyes.

CHORUS
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 that 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.

CHORUS

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

Behind the Song:
"Music holds her cards close to her chest; she always maintains the element of mystery. Sometimes everything feels so right and you can’t explain why. This album felt that way for us. We only spent around two weeks in the studio but I wouldn’t have spent another minute. This tune is a good example of the mystery of sound. We started messing around at my house with different low-end synths and lo-fi beats and this mellow acoustic song became transformed. I’m not quite sure how we got here but I’m glad that the song arrived.

I flew out to South Beach in Florida, (where Tom Lord-Alge’s studio is) to be a part of the mixing process for this track. We could only afford one ticket so I went solo. Stayed at a funky hotel a few blocks from the beach, delirious from red eye flying (and a crazy conversation with the cab driver), watching a guy I’ve never met mix our song. I remember thinking, “This is crazy. This is my life!?” Sometimes the simplest questions are the hardest to answer; kind of like the way the night sky can still shake me up." - Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
