10. Burn Out Bright

Oh! Gravity.
by Switchfoot



 

Does it have to start with a broken heart
Broken dreams and bleeding parts
We were young and world was clear
Young ambition disappears
I swore it would never come to this
The average, the obvious

Iím still discontented down here
Iím so discontented

If we only got one try
If weíve only got one life
If time was never on our side
Before I die I want to burn out bright

So a spark ignites
In time and space
To make it through this human race
You fight and crawl your way back home
But youíre running the wrong way

The future is a question mark
With kerosene electric sparks
Thereís still fire in you yet
Yeah thereís still fire in you

If we only got one try
If weíve only got one life
If time was never on our side
Before I die I want to burn out bright

I canít clean up the mess Iíve made
I canít clean up the mess Iíve made

Canít sleep in the bed Iíve made
Canít sleep in the bed Iíve made

If we only got one try
If weíve only got one life
If time was never on our side
Before I die I want to burn out bright




Behind the Song:
'One of two tracks on the record that is a command. Seems like every story I can relate to starts off with a broken heart, broken dreams and bleeding parts. There's a story I know about a man named Israel who wrestled with God. From that day on he walked with a limp. I guess in a lot of ways I don't trust a man who doesn't have a limp. The future is yet unwritten. Write it well.' Ė Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
