lyrics

Every morning you get to begin again
And you can choose the thoughts
That dance or die in your head
Stop asking why you said what you said
‘Cause tomorrow you get to try again

All this time to sit and think of what went wrong
Step into the sunshine and sing your favorite song
Maybe a smile is enough to trick the mind
But crying feels good sometimes

And you can whisper sweet surrender
And get to know that
Time will make things better
Surrender

Sometimes you gotta feed the lion
Just to be the lamb you really are
Only in a dark sky can you find the truest stars
It takes a lifetime to learn who we are
And you gotta earn every scar

And you can whisper sweet surrender
And get to know that
Time will make things better
So just let her surrender

So, just let go of what you don’t know
And all the things you can’t control
Stay in real time
Keep your eye on the white line
And keep on driving down the road

And you can whisper sweet surrender
And get to know that
Time will make things better
And you can whisper sweet surrender
And get to know that
Time will make things better
So just let her surrender

Surrender
