Switchfoot – Twenty-Four lyrics
[Verse 1]
Twenty-four oceans
Twenty-four skies
Twenty-four failures
And twenty-four tries
Twenty-four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
With twenty-four dropouts
At the end of the day

[Pre-chorus]
Life is not what I thought it wa-a-as
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singin'
Spirit take me up in arms with you
And I'm not who I thought I wa-a-as
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singin'
Spirit take me up in arms with you

[Verse 2]
There's twenty-four reasons
To admit that I'm wrong
With all my excuses
Still twenty-four strong

[Hook]
But see I'm not copping out
Not copping out
Not copping ou-ou-ou-out
When you're raising the dead in me

[Chorus]
O-o-oh o-o-oh
I am the second man
O-o-oh o-o-oh
I am the second man now-ow-ow
O-o-oh
I am the second man now
And you're raising

[Verse 3]
These twenty-four horses
With twenty-four hearts
Yeah all of my symphonies
In twenty-four parts

[Pre-chorus]
But I wanna be one today
Centered and true
I'm singin'
Spirit take me up in arms with you
You're raising the dead in me

[Chorus]
O-o-oh o-o-oh
I am the second man
O-o-oh o-o-oh
I am the second man now-ow-ow
O-o-oh
I am the second man now
And you're raising the dead in me...
Yeah...
Yeah-eah-eah

[Verse 4]
I wanna see miracles
To see the world change
To wrestle the angel
For more than a name

[Pre-chorus]
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I'm singin'
Spirit take me up in arms with you
(And you're raising the dead in me)

[Outro]
Twenty-four horses
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man)
With twenty-four hearts
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man now-ow-ow)
And all of my symphonies
(O-o-oh I am the second man now)
With twenty-four parts
(And you're raising the dead in me)
Life is not what I thought it was
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man)
Twenty-four hours ago
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man now-ow-ow)
Still I'm singin' spirit take me up in arms...
(O-o-oh I am the second man now and you're raising the dead in me)
And I'm not copping out
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man)
Not copping out
(O-o-oh o-o-oh I am the second man now-ow-ow)
No-ot I'm not copping out
