Surrender

Lyrics by Scott Schafer

Been looking for the light in the darkest of places

Wondering why my flame keeps flickering out

 

Running through life, at all the usual paces 

But this body keeps failing me now

 

Had the ugliest time with the prettiest faces

My heart keeps turning me out

 

Still if you told me we could sit for a time

Lay down these senseless pretenses 

 

I’d surrender

If you’d unburden me now

I’d let all of my fears burn with all of my doubts

 

I’d surrender

Stare into the pain

Give praise for the fortune I hear in your name

 

I’d surrender 

If you’d unburden me now

All my earthly sorrows, my heavenly doubts 

 

I’d surrender 

If you’d unburden me now

 

I fought the good fight

For what’s just and what’s right

Done my best to stand on my own

 

But I dug in my heels 

Been spinning my wheels 

Hoping the truth would find me somehow

 

But as the reflections of light

Fall on you tonight 

It’s so clear where I’ve got to be now

 

If you told me we could lay here a while

Let down our walls and defenses

 

I’d surrender

If you’d unburden me now

I’d let all of my fears burn with all of my doubts

 

I’d surrender

Stare into the pain

Give praise for the fortune I hear in your name

 

I’d surrender 

If you’d unburden me now

All my earthly sorrows, my heavenly doubts 

 

I’d surrender 

Walk into the flame

Give praise for the fortune when I scream out your name

 

I’d surrender

If you’d unburden me now
