Sweet Surrender lyrics

it doesn't mean much

it doesn't mean anything at all

the life I've left behind me

is a cold room

I've crossed the last line

from where I can't return

where every step I took in faith

betrayed me

and led me from my home

and sweet

sweet surrender

is all that I have to give

you take me in

no questions asked

you strip away the ugliness

that surrounds me

are you an angel

am I already that gone

I only hope

that I won't disappoint you

when I'm down here

on my knees

and sweet


sweet surrender

is all that I have to give



sweet surrender

is all that I have to give

and I don't understand

by the touch of your hand

I would be the one to fall

I miss the little things

oh I miss everything

it doesn't mean much

it doesn't mean anything at all

the life I left behind me

is a cold room

    I'm honored to be Muggy's Boo Boo, and sweet surrender is all that I have to give. Well, a little bit more, but that's personal ;-)

    Food for thought…about the lyrics…I always try to see where God is in them, if he’s not, then it seems like a story about addictions, escaping reality and failures, centered on ourselves and our inability to trust and grow. Because God is Everywhere and without Him we are Nowhere!

    These songs are special because they are spiritual prayers to me.

    Someone left sweet surrender as a message to me on my cell..I had heard the song before but didnt know the lyrics..I am still wondering.. is he telling me he knows how I feel for him or is HE surrendering? It could be one of two.. one walked away with no word and the other is still in my life but as a friend.. I wish I could figure it out.. Sarah, if you see this.. don't change or quit.. ever! You have a style that touches us all and a voice that sweeps us all away into areas we try to hide. I am going out in a day or two and get evey CD you've got out or that I can find..THANK YOU SARAH !!!

    This is such a great song to sing, and it applies to what I am going through in my own life. The video sucks, but the song deserves TWO THUMBS UP!!! Rock on Srah, sing it like it is.
