"Yet" by Jon and Tim Foreman

I just picked up the new Switchfoot album "Hello Hurricane", and am listening through my third time already. This is a slightly different sound yet again for them. Quite a bit more raw sounding...less produced sound. This also returns to more of the heart-being-poured-out lyrical style that was on "Nothing Is Sound" and Jon Foreman's recent EPs "Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer". This is their first work away from Columbia/SonyBMG, as they have moved to their own production on "lower case people" records with distribution on Atlantic.

"Yet" by Jon and Tim Foreman

All attempts have failed
All my heads are tails
She's got teary eyes
I've got reasons why
I'm losing ground and gaining speed
I've lost myself or most of me
I'm headed for the final precipice

But you haven't lost me yet
No, you haven't lost me yet
I'll sing until my heart caves in
No, you haven't lost me

These days pass me by
I dream with open eyes
Nightmares haunt my days
Visions blur my nights
I'm so confused
What's true or false
What's fact or fiction after all
I feel like I'm an apparition's pet

But you haven't lost me yet
No, you haven't lost me yet
I'll run until my heart caves in
No, you haven't lost me yet

If it doesn't break
If it doesn't break
If it doesn't break
If it doesn't break your heart it isn't love
If it doesn't break your heart it's not enough
It's when you're breaking down with your insides coming out
It's when you find out what your heart is made of

And you haven't lost me yet
No, you haven't lost me yet
I'll sing until my heart caves in
No, you haven't lost me yet
'Cause you haven't lost me yet
