07. i need you (to be wrong)

by Switchfoot


you come round like a pirate ship

youíre just business

you got a fish for a lower lip

youíre just business

youíre the parentless nightmare kid

you're just business

you donít answer for any of it

you're just business

i need you (to be wrong)

i need you (to be wrong)

i need you

i got a body but i lost my mind

iím just business

a placeholder with a bottom line

iím just business

please donít take this personally

itís just business

you need me (to be wrong)

you need me (to be wrong)

you need me

all along we both were wrong

i need you (to be wrong)

i need you

Behind the Song:

i need you (to be wrong): story behind the song - by Jon Foreman

You say you know it all. I say, I think you’re wrong.

And you are. At least a little wrong. Which is to say that we all have a blind spot, we just don’t know what we don’t know. All along we both were wrong.

For this album, we didn’t want to write songs. We wanted to write feelings. And this song was no different. The bones of this song were written a decade ago, collecting dust on a shelf at the studio. But Tony heard some magic in it and so we dusted it off. And as we began to play it together in our studio, we felt like it got to the core of what we were feeling in 2020.

Maybe that’s cause this song was birthed from a season of personal friction. Insecurity. Doubt. Fear. Inside and out: who can I trust? Who am I?

Maybe the good guy / bad guy dichotomy only works in kindergarten. That the truth is much more frightening: that I am Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Both. And so are you. And everyone else.

Maybe our enemy is not ignorance, but illusion. I need you to be wrong.
