Senses Fail - Surrender Lyrics




My heart breaks, it's quivering
When I stare into the sky and I know that I am part of this
Unfolding into beauty, my eyes stream with tears, rainbow ribbons grace the ground
I have died a thousands times, I have breathed a million breaths, but it has taken me this long to be present
It's taken an eternity to see this evidence
"Wisdom tells me I am nothing, my heart tells me I am everything
Somewhere between the two my life flows"

There's a beating in my heart I haven't felt in years
Thirst drove me to water where I drank from the moonlight
And now I'm free

My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that
Surrender and empty myself of the past
Cause refuge is waiting in the moment

Surrender, surrender
Surrender, surrender

Don't let your heart be turned to stone
There is a way out
Don't let your heart be turned to stone
There is a way out
Don't let your heart be turned to stone
There is a way out
Don't let your heart be turned to stone
There is a way out

There is so much peace that you can have, once you see, we are not as separate as you may think
The world's an ocean and you're a wave; we are the ocean made up of intersecting waves
There is so much love and so much kindness
There is so much hope, someday you'll find it
Take the armor off your heart and let it beat

    The memories....

  2. Andy Arexx-Siharath

    I love how this starts with a minor scale and then ends with a major scale. It's as if the song is going to be about grief, only in the end, showing that that is not the case; there's a way out.

  3. Nicholas

    Don't let your heartbeat turn to stone guys, regardless of whatever you go through. Have a loving and forgiving heart :)

    I just came here to cry. Here's the lyrics.


    [Buddy Nielsen talking:]
    My heart breaks, it's quivering
    When I stare into the sky and I know that I am part of this
    Unfolding into beauty, my eyes steam with tears, rainbow ribbons grace the ground
    I have died a thousands times, I have breathed a million breaths, but it has taken me this long to be present
    It's taken an eternity to see this evidence
    "Wisdom tells me I am nothing, my heart tells me I am everything
    Somewhere between the two my life flows"

    There's a beating in my heart I haven't felt in years
    Thirst drove me to water where I drank from the moonlight
    And now I'm free

    My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that
    Surrender and empty myself of the past
    Cause refuge is waiting in the moment

    Surrender, surrender
    Surrender, surrender

    Don't let your heartbeat turn to stone
    There is a way out
    Don't let your heartbeat turn to stone
    There is a way out
    Don't let your heartbeat turn to stone
    There is a way out
    Don't let your heartbeat turn to stone
    There is a way out

    There is so much peace that you can have, once you see, we are not as separate as you may think
    The world’s an ocean and you’re a wave; we are the ocean made up of intersecting waves
    There is so much love and so much kindness
    There is so much hope, someday you’ll find it
    Take the armor off your heart and let it beat
