Song of the Day “Dark Horses” Switchfoot

St. Louis Cardinals 2011 World Series version

Lyrics:

I’ve made my mistakes
I’ve seen my heart cave in
I got my scars
I’ve been to hell and back again

Born for the blue skies
We’ll survive the rain
Born for the sunrise
We’ll survive the pain

We’re singing hey, you can’t count us out
We’ve been running up against the crowd
Yeah, we are the dark horses
We’re singing wait, it’s not over now
We’ve been down but we’ve never been out
Yeah, we are the dark horses

We found a way out
The city takes everything it can
But outside the crowds
I can feel my lungs again

Born for the blue skies
We’ll survive the rain
Born for the sun rise
We will survive the pain

We’re singing
La la la la la la la

Were singing we don’t care what they say
We know we’ll find a way
Yeah, we are the dark horses

Keep running with the dark horses
Stand up for the dark horses
Hope makes the blood change courses
Keep running with the dark horses
Stand up for the dark horses

Lyrics:

YEAH!

Got your hands in your pockets, like your ready to pay
Got your eyes out of socket, like you’re a mile away
Mouth shut, like a locket, like you’ve nothing to say

Song of the Day “The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues)” Switchfoot

Lyrics:

Boom… The Static comes in slow
You can feel it grow
Our stream of conscious flows
Under the streets below

Ooooh

Ooooh

The rivers made of sound
Still running underground
Runs like a silent flood
We run as thick as blood

Can you hear it rise
Up from the ground
Can’t drown it out
Can you hear it now

This is the sound of a heartbeat
This is the sound from the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation
We are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me?
This is the sound of the desperation bound
By our own collision
We are the voice of breaking down

The static comes alive
Beneath the broken skies
John Perkins said it right
Love is the final fight
Oooh
Oooh
Let it rise above

Rise above
There is no song
Louder than love

This is the sound of a heartbeat
this is the sound from the discontented mouths
of a haunted nation
we are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me?
This is the sound of the desperation bound
by our own collision
we are the voice of breaking down

Down

Down

Down

Let it rise above
Up from the ground
Can’t drown it out
Can you hear it now

This is the sound of a heartbeat
This is the sound of the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation, we are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me
This is the sound of the desperation bound
by our condition, we are the voice of breaking down

This is the sound
This is the sound

Song of the Day “Learning to Breathe” Switchfoot

This song always makes me smile and puts me in a good mood. I heard it today and wanted to share. So turn it up and enjoy.

“Learning to Breathe”

Lyrics:

Hello, good morning, how you do?
What makes your rising sun so new?
I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new
So this is the way that I say I need You
This is the way
This is the way that I’m

Learning to breathe
I’m learning to crawl
I’m finding that You and You alone can break my fall
I’m living again, awake and alive
I’m dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning, how you been?
Yesterday left my head kicked in
I never, never thought that
I would fall like that
Never knew that I could hurt this bad

So this is the way that I say I need You
This is the way that I say I love You
This is the way that I say I’m Yours
This is the way, this is the way
