Twenty Four.

September 27, 2011


While sitting at work I had my iPod playing all the music on shuffle when 24 by Switchfoot came on. Such a good song… I honestly forgot about the song until my 24th birthday when I dear friend of mine said he remembered sitting on his 24th birthday and listening to that song over and over. Even then I didn’t go and listen to it.

So, here I was… sitting at my desk carefully listening to the song. Absorbing every word. Apparently the lead singer and writer of the song wrote it at the end of his 24th year.

It’s funny how fast my 24th year has flown by. I’m anticipating my 25th Birthday and planning for an awesome party but listening to this song today made me realize that I need to soak in every single day. I am a HUGEplanner so it’s hard for me to do that, especially when I am excited about what I’m planning. And just for the record… a duo 25th Birthday Party with one of my best friends is most DEFINITELY exciting!!! 

So there’s a random thought from my head today. Hope you enjoyed it, ha!
I also thought it would be nice to share the song with all of you… it really is a great song & I love Switchfoot!
Enjoy and hope you all had a blessed Tuesday!




Twenty four oceans
Twenty four skies
Twenty four failures
Twenty four tries
Twenty four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
Twenty four drop outs
At the end of the day
Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty four hours ago

Still I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
And I'm not who I thought I was twenty four hours ago
Still I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You

Twenty four reasons to admit that I'm wrong
With all my excuses still twenty four strong

See I'm not copping out not copping out not copping out
When You’re raising the dead in me
Oh, oh I am the second man
Oh, oh I am the second man now
Oh, oh I am the second man now

And You're raising these twenty four voices
With twenty four hearts
With all of my symphonies 
In twenty four parts
But I want to be one today
Centered and true

I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
You're raising the dead in me
Oh, oh I am the second man
Oh, oh I am the second man now
Oh, oh I am the second man now
And You're raising the dead in me

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
Twenty four voices
With twenty four hearts
With all of my symphonies 
In twenty four parts.
I'm not copping out. Not copping out. Not copping out.
