Live it Well – Switchfoot (lyrics)

Brand new track from Switchfoot. Can’t stop listening.

Here’s the acoustic version (video) –

Take the burden from my arms
Take the anchor off my lungs
Take me broken
Make me one
Break the silence and make it a song

CHORUS
Life is short, I want to live it well
One life, one story to tell
Life is short, I want to live it well
And You’re the One I’m living for
Awaken o my soul
Every breath that you take is a miracle
Life is short, I want to live it well

I want to sing with all my heart a lifelong song
Even if some notes come out right and some come out wrong
I can’t take none of that through the door
I’m living for more than just a funeral
I want to burn brighter than the dawn

I got one life and one love
I got one voice and maybe that’s enough
With one heartbeat, two hands to give
I’ve got one shot, one life to live

 

Also love the “story behind the song” from Jon Foreman –
