Switchfoot – Meant To Live

Fumbling his confidence
And wond’ring why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he’s bent for more than arguments,
And failed attempts to fly, fly

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Dreaming about Providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we’ve been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we’re bent and broken, broken

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live
We were meant to live

Switchfoot – This Is Your Life

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
And today is all you’ll ever have
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Is it everything you’ve dreamed it would be
When the world was younger
and you had everything to lose

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Is everything you’ve dreamed it would be
When the world was younger
and you had everything to lose

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Are you who you want to be
This is your life
Is everything you’ve dreamed it would be
When the world was younger
and you had everything to lose
You had everything to lose

Switchfoot – Dare You To Move

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone’s here
Everyone’s here
Everybody’s watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

Dare you to move
Dare you to move
Dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
Dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

Dare you to move
Dare you to move
Dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
Dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

Dare you to move
Dare you to move
Dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
Dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before

【The Beautiful Letdown】由 John Fields(曾制作Andrew W.K)制作,Chris Lord-Alge(Goo Goo Dolls、Michelle Branch)、Tom Lord-Alge(Blink-182、Rolling Stones)、Jack Joseph Puig(John Mayer、No Doubt)这些名家坐镇混音。【The Beautiful Letdown】发行后便进入告示榜专辑榜Top16,并以单曲『Meant To Live』获得摇滚榜 Top13 及流行单曲榜 Top19,MV是由曾拍摄 Radiohead(电台司令) MV 的Laurent Briet 掌镜。

从音乐的影响上,Switchfoot 从 The Police、James Taylor、Beatles、Stevie Wonder 这些前辈身上吸取养分,创作出充满流畅旋律与内在连续转换成动感的情绪的吉他流行歌曲。Jon Foreman 说,我们难以归类,多样性是我们的特点。 Jon Foreman 将专辑具有生猛具真实感的特性归功于他们一直固有的 DIY 精神。他说他们不想浪费钱在昂贵的录音室里,所以在自己的卧室里先把专辑完成前制作业。然后再由 John Fields 直接录制专辑,以极为快速效率的方式完成所有的制作,假如在录音室待太久肯定会毁了这张专辑。

【The Beautiful Letdown】这张主流专辑是三年前发完独立厂牌专辑后的新作品,之前的三张专辑包括广受好评的 Learning To Breath 使他们日益受到瞩目。2001年获得圣地亚哥当地最佳流行专辑、最佳流行艺人及最佳成人另类团体等奖项,并且录制5首歌曲作为电影 A Walk To Remember 的原声带,与美国新生代玉女歌星 Mandy Moore(曼蒂魔儿)一同对唱主题曲。这支充满年轻朝气的摇滚乐团正踩在新世纪摇滚的浪头上,向世人迎面袭来。就让Switchfoot 的吉他音浪带领听众进入美妙的音乐高潮里吧。
