This is your life

You know I was just listening to one of my new favorite songs. “This is your life” by Switchfoot. It also reminded me of an episode of Smallville where Clark Kent had to make a decision whether or not to obey his Father and rule the planet earth thus fulfilling his destiny or to chose his own path and help people who are in need. The lyric “This is your life, are you who you want to be?” is so relevant to someone my age and younger. At this age is where you are just getting started at this game called life. It’s at this stage where you start shaping who you are. What kind of person you will become. Sometimes I get into the habit of just going with the flow instead of keeping myself on tract to become the person God wants me to become. This Song was a good reminder.

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
Yeah, 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 dreamed that 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 it everything you dreamed that 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 it everything you dreamed it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

And you had everything to lose

  1. I have had this song in my head for the past 3 days! No kidding! I love it!

  2. I did a post on that song about a year ago. Great song, great group. http://armswideopen.wordpress.com/2005/10/25/this-is-your-life/

  3. It’s actually pretty relevent to people my age, too. People my age look back and ask if we’re everything we’d dreamed we’d be when the world was younger…it’s also a reminder that it’s never too late to go back to that idealism and be who we want to be.

    Like Aaron says, great song, great group.
