One of my favorite bands of all time is Switchfoot, their music is raw, insightful, longing…the lyrics that they write are quite amazing. They speak to me on some deeper level, the place where I find myself searching, wanting, longing for more.
Their songs have, at times inspired me to go beyond my comfort zone, and have also brought me to tears as I listened and connected on that deeper level of the soul. Maybe they just write about their quest and longing for God, and so connect with so many of us on similar journeys? They are the voice of a generation, a generation of seekers who are not content just to “survive”. As I read some lyrics tonight I noticed how poetic and profound some of them are, I want to post some of the lyrics(snippets) that speak to me, and maybe they will speak to you as well!
