Surrender

Lightning in the distance gives me pause
Could it be I’m not here at all?
Am I still lost in my dream?
I can feel it, this is something that is meant to be
I brought my power back to me
Maybe I’m in a waking dream

I lost but I never gave up all of me
Threw the white flag up when it came to be
Too much to reconcile inside
So what? No one ever gets out easily
If you want to live you must set things free
And surrender what you must
It happens to all of us

Sunlight reminds me that there’s always warmth
Even when the bitter cold
Seems all you’ve ever known
People say that faith should be an easy thing
But it feels so hard sometimes for me
To believe it will all be all right

I lost but I never gave up all of me
Threw the white flag up when it came to be
Too much to reconcile inside
So what? No one ever gets out easily
If you want to live you must set things free
And surrender what you must
It happens to all of us

It had never felt much colder
Than it did when they began
To fall, one then another
With a twisted, fated hand
I dissolved inside a fortress
That I took so long to build
And alone I had to dig out
And face a darkened world
But then, I saved myself

I lost but I never gave up all of me
Threw the white flag up when it came to be
Too much to reconcile inside
So what? No one ever gets out easily
If you want to live you must set things free
And surrender what you must
It happens to all of us
