"Evergreen" as written by and Niladri Kumar....
Me and the trees, losing our leaves
Falling like blood on the ground
I want to be evergreen
Everything dies, I know last night
Part of me wasn't around
I want to be evergreen
Yeah, evergreen

Waiting, and listening
Hoping and missing all of our time left alone
I'm the one cutting the rope
Frostbite in winter,
'Cause like a splinter
you come and follow me down
I'm the one cutting the rope
Yeah

Holiday end,
I'm here once again,
And I'm left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground,
In hopes that I'm found by you
This time around

The sun will rise soon and tackle the moon
Chasing it still in the sky
All that I've got is tonight
Excuses and reasons,
And now tis the season
For all that I never got right
All that I've got is tonight

Holiday end,
I'm here once again,
And I'm left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground,
In hopes that I'm found by you
This time around

The night is a crow saying, "Come hold me"
All that I know is I've been so lonely for you
All that I knew, and all that I know found itself under Your reign
I want to be evergreen

Holiday end,
I'm here once again,
And I'm left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground,
In hopes that I'm found by you
This time around
I want to be evergreen,
I want to live all year round
I want to live all year round
I want to live all year round
I want to live all year round

    My InterpretationThis song is about consistency. The way we live our lives when no one's watching. How we should strive to live our life to the same fullness all the year round just like the trees whose leaves never die.
    Switchfoot sing a lot about entropy: the law of this world which states that everything falls to a lower state of matter; the second law of thermodynamics. "Everything dies", leaves fall, flowers wither, but our lives should shine through to others all year round and not grow faint.

    It also has the idea of coming home from a holiday or returning to normal life from a spiritual high. "Holiday end, I'm here once again and I'm left alone on the bus with my head on the ground"

    Great song.

    I want to be evergreen.

    General CommentThis song is about "living the life" all the time. Just as evergreens stay green all year round, we need to be on fire for Christ in everything we do.

    General Commentplease stop with the christian band thing...they're not a christian band. tim the bassist said 'we're christian by faith not by genre'.. they're just christians in a band, like U2.

    General CommentBorn2xl, even if your claim was true, keep in mind that because THEY ARE Christians, their values and beliefs WILL come out through their music.

    General CommentJust because you're Christian, you don't have to sing only of God. I'm Christian, and die hard one at that. And I conceive everything through a Christian eye, but this song spoke to me not about religion, but about living in general. It was like, "I don't want to have to go to a big event, or a concert to be inspired, to want to change this world. I want to live all year round-I want to live life for real every day."
