right off the bat
you just shoot down everything
and dark as the night
you thrive upon troubled times

right off the bat
you just shoot down everything
no love in your heart
there's no love in your life

anymore
just sleep
sleep

now the tables turning
but your lips met and advances go only so far
wishing someone had told us about her
with our hands tied and our patience waning
and the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
screaming this is surrender

i've got a mind
to just tell you everything
with no holding back
all without any lies
and now that we're here
let's just break apart everything
and secretly try
try to put some love in your life

but for now
just sleep
sleep

now the tables turning
but your lips met and advances go only so far
wishing someone had told us about her
with our hands tied and our patience waning
and the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
screaming this is surrender

sleep

now the tables turning
but your lips met and advances go only so far
wishing someone had told us about her
with our hands tied and our patience waning
and the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
screaming this is surrender

now the tables turning
(this is surrender) (x3)

with our hands tied and our patience waning (this is surrender)

now the tables turning
(this is surrender) (x2)

this is surrender

    General CommentI think these are the full lyrics:



    Right off the bat
    You just shoot down everything
    And dark as the night
    You thrive upon troubled times

    Right off the bat
    You just shoot down everything
    No love in your heart
    There's no love in your life

    Any more
    Just sleep
    Sleep

    Now the tables turning
    But your lips met and advance go only so far
    Wishing someone had told us about her
    With our hands tied and our patience waning
    And the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
    Screaming this is surrender

    I've got a mind
    To just tell you everything
    With no holding back
    All without any lies
    And now that we're here
    Let's just break apart everything
    And secretly try
    Try to put some love in your life

    But for now
    Just sleep
    Sleep

    Now the tables turning
    But your lips met and advance go only so far
    Wishing someone had told us about her
    With our hands tied and our patience waning
    And the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
    Screaming this is surrender

    Sleep

    Now the tables turning
    But your lips met and advance go only so far
    Wishing someone had told us about her
    With our hands tied and our patience waning
    And the mood goes from urgent to not so as hours pass slow
    Screaming this is surrender

    Now the tables turning
    (this is surrender) [x3]

    With our hands tied and our patience waning (this is surrender)

    Now the tables turning
    (this is surrender) [x2]

    General Commentthia song is really something else,i love the dark undertone to it.

    "right off the bat
    you just shoot down everything
    no love in your heart
    there's no love in your life"

    my favorite part of the song for sure
    and i just started to get into the song but at a glance i want to say that this song is about how the girl used to be the type that didnt care about love whatsoever ,she would rather sleep and hwas wrapped up in her life and if love ever knocked on her door she would completely ignore it,she would turn down the person and move on with life but then it sounds as if the tables have turned and now she is the one in the position where she is chasing someone and she is saying i surrender i want to dedicate myself to you,i want to be with you, i want to be your everything.

    i have no clue i could be wrong
    but oh well
    im going to sleep

    :D
