"Surrender" as written by Lynn Canfield, Henry Frayne and Brendan Gamble....
It was familiar and it was carried off
No one here wants to talk about it
Anymore
He kept the promise
That he struggled to make to me
Before my own timely departure
Through the door

How did you know?
That you’re very out of tears?
Be the river that you’d follow by and by
How will we go?
When suddenly the years
Slowly drifting past
Force the question: “Why?”

I surrendered
Like you promised me I would
I did it while swimming through the river
Saying every prayer is answered
While we were running out of time
And probably never the same old twilights

It was innocent
And it carried us away
A slippery kind of playground
We asked for
In a breeze when sun detected
A sound so soft
Came our unlikely surrender
To the storm

But maybe we weren’t
Brushed out by waving light
And curiously rambling
As they took him by surprise

I only said good night
No need to wish him well
As I fought, the message reached out
We found
Every prayer is answered
And we were smoldered toward the end

And probably
Not quite
Healing will intend

How did you know?
That you’re very out of tears
Be in the river
That you drink from by and by

How will we fall?
When suddenly they appear
Slowly drifting past
Now force the question “Why?”

It was familiar
And we welcomed you with open arms
And you carried him away
But not so far
He’s all of my been-and-“did he?” times
And well-rehearsed way out
And he was everything he told me
Now quickly tumbling down

He kept through his promise
That struggled to make to me
I surrender
If he leaves…
