"Sweet Surrender" lyrics - TIM BUCKLEY

"Sweet Surrender"

Now you wanna know the reason
Why I cheated on you?
Well I had to be a hunter again.
This little man had to try
To make love feel new again.

'Cause there's just a few things, honey
I'm not old enough to do for you. Oh.
And they're the things, momma
You just never care to show me. Oh.

So this flim-flam lover boy
Found him a flamingo.
And his flamingo
Showed him how to tango.
And when they tangoed
It'd send their heart's a 'flutter.
Teased him till he'd stutter.
Made him so young and tender.
Sweet to surrender
And so sweet surrender.
In sweet surrender.
Ah, sweet surrender to love.

But now you're gonna go out
And get yourself
A reputation.
But I'm gonna have to show you
Where to start.
And then you're gonna bring back
Your little reputation
And prove to me
What I could not prove to you.

'Cause I was just too young at heart.
I'm just too cold, honey.
Just too hard to care.
Just too hard, 'right
To surrender.
Surrender to love.

Sweet surrender
Surrender to love.

If we could
Just surrender
Love would heal the mess we've made.
So give it up, momma, ah.
It 'ain't gonna be no good
It keeps goin' 'round and 'round.
You hurt me.
Then I hurt you again.
All that's left to do, ah.
Is give it up, Ah,
No, no, give it up
And surrender, Ah, momma.

Sweet surrender.
Sweet surrender.
Surrender your love.
Surrender love.
Oh, Surrender momma.
Oh, Surrender that love.
Sweet, sweet, sweet su-rre-rren-der, momma.
In to love.
To love.
To love.
