"Meant to Live" is the first track on Switchfoot's fourth album, The Beautiful Letdown.


Fumbling his confidence and
Wondering why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he’s bent for more
Than arguments and failed attempts to fly, fly

We were meant to live for some much more,
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside,
Somewhere we live inside.
We were meant live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves
Somewhere we live inside.

Dreaming about providence
Whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we’ve living with our eyes half open
Maybe we’re bent and broken,

We want more than this world’s got to offer (2x)
We want more than the wars of our fathers
and everything inside screams for second life. (yeah)
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
