I love the song “Always” by Switchfoot. I love it even more now that I realized that it is a love song, sung first from the perspective of God, then ended with a man’s response.

The song begins with God telling this man that today will be the first day of his life — spiritual life.  He sings about the man’s past wounds and scars, and promises that God always will belong to that man.  “I am always, always, always yours.”

Then, halfway through the song, it takes this beautiful, worshipful turn.  A man responds with spontaneous & beautiful praise:

I’m caving in
I’m in love again
I’m a wretched man
Every breath is a second chance

And it is always yours
And I am always yours

God always belongs to that man, and the man always belongs to God. It gives me chills!!
