Is This REALLY Happening?
Tomorrow morning I board a plane to Santa Ana, CA to fulfill one of the many things I have always wanted to do but NEVER thought I actually would. Since 1998 when I was first introduced to the music of Switchfoot, I have wanted to see them live in concert in there home town, San Diego. Never in my wildest dreams, although I always said I would do it before I was 30, did I imagine it happening! My sweet friend Erin call in early spring and told me that Switchfoot would be playing a show with Dave Matthews in Chula Vista, CA and that she was buying us tickets and we were GOING! We talked to some of our other girlfriends who share the same love for Switchfoot and they all considered long and hard and Amy decided to join us!!! So the three of us are meeting in OC tomorrow, staying with some friends of Amy's, driving up the coast Saturday into San Diego, hanging out in the city and ending the day in Chula Vista at the show!!! (we fly out at 620am Sunday morning but who needs sleep!)
Now, let it be known that I am not a Swtichfoot stalker or creeper, but I do greatly love their music. When the new album comes out I often feel like I have opened my journal and Jon and the guys have put amazing lyrics and music to the thoughts of my heart. I am grateful to the Lord for the many moments He has used their songs to minister to my soul, to convict, to comfort, to encourage.
****it has come to my attention that I should revise the give away...you can try the below, but if you cant do it, just leave your fav song and why***
I was thinking that in honor of us going I would do a little give away, my first on this blog actually! I am going to list 6 stanzas from various Switchfoot songs, that over the years the Lord has used. If you can, without googling them, tell me what songs they are from, I will put all the people who got the correct answers (or who give it a good shot) in a drawing. Whoever wins, I will get them something at the show!!!
Also include your favorite Switchfoot song and why!
Okay here goes:
1) These carbon shells
These fragile dusty frames
House canvases of souls
We are bruised and broken masterpieces
But we did not paint ourselves
2) Hope has given himself to the worst
Is this fiction or divine comedy?
Where the last of the last finish first
3)I give You my apathy
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back
4)They're taking pictures of
The man who's lost all of his
Masks of pretension
He's got two faces left
His is the one that he hides
On the left behind that smile
Hiding tears and fear
That burn like an engine
It drives him away
From the ones that he loves
5)I want to see miracles, see the world change
Wrestled the angel, for more than a name
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
And You're raising the dead in me
6) And all I see It could never make me happy
And all my sand castles
Spend their time collapsing
