Dare You to Move

The other day I was running along the Pearl River in Guangzhou China. My legs were heavy and my mind was full. I put the Ipod on to clear my mind but back to back 15 minutes songs did not do the job. I like the songs but played back to back on a dead flat super hard surface to run was difficult. I turned down the finishing street with 5 minutes to run and the song Dare You to Move by Switchfoot came on. My mood/attitude went from drudgery to uplifting energy. It's a beautiful song with some powerful song writing. Enjoy it.


Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself, to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before
