09. All or Nothing At All

Fading West
by Switchfoot



 

I canít say I didnít see it coming
I pushed the pedal and we hit the wall
I canít say I donít want nothing
I want it all, or nothing at all

I shouldíve known, shouldíve known better
I canít say I didnít see you fall
I won't settle for your love letters
I want it all, or nothing at all

You feel your heartbeat loudest when it's breaking
You and I both know our fatal flaws
We both know that love is what you make it
I want you,
All or nothing at all
All or nothing at all

Thereís a fault line here running
The walls shake like a cannon ball
So fight fair if you love something
Yeah, but Iím sick of fighting at all

I canít say that I donít get it
I want it all, or nothing at all

We wonít stop till we're getting it right
We wonít stop till we're getting it right
Now I know, now I know better
I want it all, or nothing at all

All or nothing at all




Behind the Song:
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one's house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
-Song of Songs 8:6

The fault lines in our world run deep. They run through our nation, our communities, and our marriages. Even deep within me, I carry my own contradictions. And I'm not the only one. We are flawed, hurting, creatures capable of incredible love and shocking cruelty. From time to time this dividing chaos threatens to shake the very things that we hold dear.

But to love is to risk. Love is vulnerability. For me, the song "All or Nothing" is a song about acceptance. Accepting the broken hearts, accepting the fatal flaws. Accepting that we haven't gotten it right just yet- but moving forward anyways. The ultimatum "all or nothing" is a song about loving all in spite of whatever pain or potential risks may lie ahead.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken." -C.S. Lewis
-- Jon Foreman
