She told him she'd rather fix her make-up
Than try to fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cell phone gone

She told him she believes in living
Bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upside-down

Don't say so-long, you're not that far gone
Don't spend today away
'Cause today will soon be

Gone
Like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try and prove me wrong
And pretend like you're immortal

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every day we borrow brings us
One step closer to the edge
Infinity
Where's your treasure, where's your hope
If you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like she's immortal

Don't say so-long, and throw yourself wrong
This could be your big chance to make-up
Today will soon be

Gone
Like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
You're going, going, gone
Like summer break is gone
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong
And pretend like you're immortal

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate

We are so confident in our accomplishments
Look at our decadence

Gone
Like Frank Sinatra
Like Elvis and his mom
Like Al Pacino's cash, nothing lasts in this life
My high school dreams are gone
My childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long

Life is more than money
Time was never money
Time was never cash
Life is still more than girls
Life is more than hundred-dollar bills and roto-tom fills
Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills
All the riches of the kings end up in wills
We've got information in the information age
But do we know what life is
Outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow
Brings us close to a God who's never short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked
Life is still worth living.
Life is still worth living.

    General CommentFor one, these lyrics are all wrong. To find the real ones, go to switchfoot.com.

    Second, I wish people would put a little more thought into these music critiques. So much can be said about this song and it takes away from it when people sum it up in 5 words.

    Anyway, my belief is that Switchfoot is concerned about several things: that (1), people aren't seizing the day as they should, (2), people are taking their lives for granted and (3), that we're replacing the Void in our lives with various different things (the money, the cash, the girls). All these things are irrelevant once a person sees how precious life truly is. One thing I admire about Switchfoot is how they can get across a hugely powerful message without being overly preachy and religious.
