SotD: Switchfoot - Only Hope

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: December 3, 2007

I first became familiar with Switchfoot after watching A Walk to Remember years ago. Mandy Moore sang “Only Hope” in the movie, and I fell in love with it. Then I heard Switchfoot’s version and fell in love with it. Been a Switchfoot fan ever since.

It’s a deep song and personal in so many ways. Apparently, it’s a favorite of one of the Jonas Brothers. Yeah, don’t ask me how I know that.. Actually, it was in the comments of some of the youtube videos I came across. :-) I’m not sure why this video is sideways.

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But you sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you’re my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again

And I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

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

And I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope
