"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Switchfoot - Gone

She told him she’d rather fix her makeup than try to fix what’s going on,
but the problem keeps on calling, even with the cellphone gone.
She told him that she believes in living bigger than she’s living now,
but her world keeps spinning backwards and upside down.

Don’t say so long, in through the cellphone
don’t spend today away, cuz today will soon be —

gone, like yesterday is gone, like history is
gone, just try to prove me wrong,
and pretend like you’re immortal.

She said he said live like no tomorrow; every day we borrow brings us one step closer to the edge: infinity,
Where’s your treasure, where’s your hope if you get the world but lose your soul..
She pretends like she pretends like she’s immortal.

Don’t say so long, you’re not that far gone.. this could be your big chance to makeup..
today will soon be —

gone, like yeterday is gone, like history is
gone, the world keeps spinning on,
you’re going, going gone, like summer break is gone,
like Saturday is gone, just try and prove me wrong..
you pretend like you’re immortal (you’re immortal) you’re immortal (you’re immortal) ha-hah..

We are not infinite, we are not permanent.. nothing’s immediate.
We’re so confident in our accomplishments.. look at how dark it is.

Gone, like Frank Sinatra,
like Elvis and his mom,
like Al Pacino’s cash, nothing lasts in this life.
My highschool dreams are gone.
My childhood sweets are gone.
Life is a day that doesn’t last for long…

Life is more than money, time was never money,
time was never cash, life is still more than girls,
life is more than hundred dollar bills and oh the time fills..
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills..
all the riches of the kings end up in wills.
We got information in the information age, but do we know what life is outside of our conveinent Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow..
every moment that we borrow brings us closer to the God who’s not short of cash.
Hey Bono, I’m glad you asked; life is still worth living, life is still worth living.
Life is more than you are.

Not completely brilliant, but a catchy song.. and right anyway..

  1. Just A Bit Confused.

    I think it’s a awesome song. Christian at least. which is good. who posted that anyway? the whole “These are lyrics by Switchfoot, from ‘Gone’. Not brilliant, but a catchy song.. and right anyway.” ? and is this a Christian website? or at least, what do you post on it? just whatever you want, or certain stuff? well, bye! from Just A Bit Confused.

  2. I posted it.
    This is not a religious website.
    Anything I want.

    It’s definitely a good song. And nice to revisit again today, thanks.
