let your love be strong – switchfoot

25 April 2010

In this world of news, I’ve found nothing new
I’ve found nothing pure
Maybe I’m just idealistic to assume that truth
Could be fact and form
That love could be a verb
Maybe I’m just a little misinformed

As the dead moon rises, and the freeways sigh
Let the trains watch over the tides and the mist
Spinning circles in our skies tonight
Let the trucks roll in from Los Angeles
Maybe our stars are unanimously tired

Let your love be strong, and I don’t care what goes down
Let your love be strong enough to weather through the thunder cloud
Fury and thunder clap like stealing the fire from your eyes
All of my world hanging on your love

Let the wars begin, let my strength wear thin
Let my fingers crack, let my world fall apart
Train the monkeys on my back to fight
Let it start tonight
When my world explodes, when my stars touch the ground
Falling down like broken satellites

All of my world resting on your love

    Nice poem! I wish I could write like that.

      I didn’t write that. It is a song by Switchfoot.

    It’s a beautiful song — Switchfoot’s lyrics are so solid and truthful. Sometimes, when all else seems meaningless and void of purpose, we’re desperate to be reminded how pure God’s love is. It is vast and uncharted – I’d love to drown in it. :)

      Amen. I can’t even think of anything to add to what you just said.

    Oh. Well, I still wish I could write like that.

Any thoughts? Something to say? I'd love to hear it.
