"Surrender" as written by and Rebecca Elizabeth Marie/barlow Barlow....
My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen.
So many years Ive shaped each one
Reflecting my heart, showing who I am.
Now you're asking me to show
What I'm holding Oh so tightly.
Cant open my hand; cant let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Cant you let me go?

[Chorus]
Surrender, surrender
You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but cant you see
My dreams are me, My dreams are me

Say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life.
Told me the world has yet to see
What you can do with one
That's committed to your call.
I know of course what I should do
That I cant hold these dreams forever.
But if I give them now to you
Will you take them
Away forever?
Or can I dream again?

    General CommentThis song is one of those that every Christian wishes they could sing and mean it. It's so hard to give our dreams to God. We're so set on making it on our own and fulfilling our own dreams because we believe that they define us. We know that giving our dreams to God would make life so much better for us, but it's just really hard cause we're so scared to entrust our dreams to someone else, even God.

    General CommentI believe this song was written by Alyssa Barlow. If I remember correctly, she was a dancer until she was injured and diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. This song is about how she had to put down her dream of preforming and surrender those dreams to God.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs by BarlowGirl, if not their best. It was the first song I heard by them and fell completely in love with it.
    Such a beautiful, beautiful song.

    General CommentAGain, Unreligious, in an unreligious way (It may well be about god from the artists Point of view) my opinion is that its about not trusting a partner to tell them their dreams..
