“Love Alone Is Worth The Fight!”

This post is dedicated to the honorable blogger who created and runs the PRIORHOUSE BLOG / http://priorhouse.wordpress.com  She is one of those tremendous encouragers that we find along the journey, throughout our story … you know what I mean, right. A few weeks ago, she sent a video short of Switchfoot playing this tune, “Love Alone Is Worth The Fight”.  A group of surfers, out of San Diego, came together in 1996 to do some music together. These fellows go by the name of “Switchfoot”.

My daughter and I sometimes play Switchfoot’s “Love Alone Is Worth The Fight”.  Its great to see her totally in to good music, especially when Jesus is being glorified.  Here are some  of the lyrics.

I’m trying to find where my place is
I’m looking for my own oasis
So close I can taste this
The fear that love alone erases
So I’m back to the basics
I figure it’s time I face this
Time to take my own advice
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
And I never thought it’d come to this
But it seems like I’m finally feeling numb to this
The funny thing about a name is
You forget what the reason you were playing the game is
And it’s all an illusion
A 21st century institution
So I’m headed down the open road unknown
And we find what we’re made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you’re afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
We’re only here for a season
I’m looking for the rhyme and reason
Why you’re born, why you’re leaving
What you fear and what you believe in
Why you’re living and breathing
Why you’re fighting it and getting it even
Let’s go headed down the open road unknown
And we find what we’re made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you’re afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh! Oh!
Here we are, here we go
Where the road is our own
Hear it calling you home
Here we are, here we go!
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight

  1. Okay, one more thing – and this is probably knit picking, but the video you linked almost ruined the song for me. It did have the lyrics – but it was also so “couple” focused that it made seem like a marriage song. Also, the big lip kiss in the video was annoying – and well, maybe the band did write the song as a “pro-marriage” – but that was not what I got and I found that whoever made that particular video added too much of his own bias and interpretation (sorry if you made the video – and if it was you…. well I appreciate the artistic side of the transitions… ha!).

    anyhow, I found this version with lyrics over black – just to share with what you already shared – 🙂
    and maybe people can watch both and decide for themselves….
