LOVE SURRENDER

I LOVE EVERYTHING FROM THE SEA SHE SAID 

THE STRAIN IN HER VOICE GAVE HER AWAY

BREEZED THOUGH THE MENU WITH A CAREFUL EYE

I HOPED SOMEONE WOULD BE STOPPING BY

 

I MADE SOME PLANS TO HEAD BACK HOME

TO AVOID A THUNDERSTORM

I CAN’T HANG AROUND HERE CONTEMPLATING

NOW, I’M DONE WITH CASUAL DATING

 

GIVE ME LOVE AND LOVE SURRENDER

GIVE ME HOPE OF A BETTER DAY

GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN TRUST AND HONOR

SAY THAT YOU’LL LOVE ME FOREVER

 

GIVE ME SOMETHING PURE AND SIMPLE

GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN HOLD ON TO

THEN I’LL PUT MY FAITH BACK IN YOU

 

SOON I WAS OUT IN THE BUSY STREET

I SAW A MAN, WHO WAS LOOKING RIGHT BACK AT ME

HE SAID, SON I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH

I’VE BEEN THERE MYSELF; IT’S NOT GOOD FOR YOU

 

I THINK OF THAT MOMENT EVERY NIGHT AND DAY

IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO GET WHAT HE SAID

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS

DO UNTO THEM WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO DO TO YOU 

 

GIVE ME LOVE AND LOVE SURRENDER

GIVE ME HOPE OF A BETTER DAY

GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN TRUST AND HONOR

SAY THAT YOU’LL LOVE ME FOREVER

 

GIVE ME SOMETHING PURE AND SIMPLE

GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN HOLD ON TO

THEN I’LL PUT MY FAITH BACK IN YOU

 

I MADE IT THROUGH THE PARK TO THE GALLERY

A PAINTING THERE HANGING RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME

TALKING TO ME, MOVING ME IN EVERY WAY

A GREAT SENSATION, A REVELATION

 

IT WAS BLUE, BLACK AND WHITE AND GREY

IT WAS BOLD AND STRAIGHT, COULDN’T ARTICULATE

BRIGHT COLORS SHOWERED WITH A FRAGRANCE OF POWER

A HIDDEN MESSAGE OF HUMAN DESIRES
