Sarah McLachlan - 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

Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give

Take me in
No questions asked
You strip away the ugliness
That surrounds me
(who are you?)

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
(who are you?)

Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give
(who are you?)

Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give

And I don't understand
How the touch of your hand
I would be the one to fall

I miss the little things
I miss everything about you

Doesn't mean much
It doesn't mean anything at all
The life I left behind me
Is a cold room
(who are you?)

Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give
(who are you?)

Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give

    Tudo q tenho a oferecer são os sentimentos mais puros.
    Não quero mais ser usada, vandalizadas, humilhada, envizibilada e calada por caprichos, egocentrismo ou narcisismo. Odeio joguinhos, detesto mentiras e falsidade, não suporto qualquer tipo de intriga. Tudo o q tenho a oferecer são águas cristalinas e profundas.
    Só a sorte de algo recíproco e tranquilo. . . Apenas

    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
    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
    Sweet surrender
    Is all that I have to give (who are you?)
    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
    I miss everything about you
    It doesn't mean much
    It doesn't mean anything at all
    The life I've left behind me
    Is a cold room
    Sweet surrender
    Is all that I have to give (who are you?)
    Sweet surrender
    Is all that I have to give

  76. Gary Beck

    God Jesus loves uya Sarah, just repent and know, and is to & for all! We all slip but we often focus on all the wrong thing,s. Start with the ten, because Jesus did not come to abolish the law,s of God handed to Moses, but to fulfill them.

  86. duncan w craig

    There was more class and style in the 90s. And originality. FACT.

  87. Joe McOmber

    I always thought that the moment at 3:38 where the Sarah with the long hair comes together with Sarah with the short hair and then reflects forward with the short hair was symbolic of where she was going with her life.

  88. Sam Hobson

    Farking Amazing .I won't say anymore. , but i could.

  89. Jesse Fritz

    One of my absolute favorite songs. I didn't understand it back in the 90's but its clear as day now.

  90. kantaa100

    this song brings me sad memories, because I knew that she was wrong nothing could do to avoid it

  91. CLaRiSSA XPlaiNs iT AlL

    Still jammin in 2019 !!!!

  92. RonniStyles

    I remember driving down outer drive which is a two way highway south of Detroit Mi. Anyway, I was blasting this song and I looked over to see a cop waving me over, he was smiling. I pulled over and he said "do you know how fast your going"? I said "no I didnt I 'm sorry" I said, he smiled really big and said, well just watch your speed. I honestly think he could have tried to put me in jail, but I was completely sober. I'll never forget it because he was a handsome black man and I was hot...hahahaha!!! The funny thing is I just seen his smile and I thought he was just some guy flirting with me , then I seen his car...ha!!!

  93. Pat Powers

    There are a few female vocalists who have voices that can just get in there and hook me by the heart. Sarah is one. Delores O'Riordan is another. I swear they could sing the fucking phone book and I'd love it.

    Mick Funny

    Pat Powers Sarah sang Oh Canada at the NBA Finals. It wasn’t that great tbh https://youtu.be/uFCR5pq4TbA

  94. David Thomas

    Happy to be reminded of this brilliant recording.

  95. Cole Tanner

    There's a church song called I Surrender All..This seems to me to be just another version..Same thoughts and themes..Giving up a life of mistakes to a higher power to guide your ways.

  96. Tara O'hara

    "You strip away the ugliness that surrounds me - who are you? Are you an Angel?"
    Thank you Father God for the a
    Guardian Angels in my life you send that help me see your Grace, love and mercy still are alive in a world that often times feels so terribly void of your core virtues.
