Sweet Surrender

Original and similar lyrics
Lost and alone on some forgotten highway, traveled by many, remembered by few. Looking for something that I can believe in, looking for something that I'd like to do with my life. There's nothing behind me and nothing that ties me to something that might have been true yesterday. Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more than enough To just be here today, and I don't know what the future is holding in store, I don't know where I'm going, I'm not sure where I've been. There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me, my life is worth the living, I don't need to see the end. Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care, like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air. Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care, like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air. Lost and alone on some forgotten highway, traveled by many, remembered by few. Looking for something that I can believe in, looking for something that I'd like to do with my life. There's nothing behind me and nothing that ties me to something that might have been true yesterday. Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more than enough To just be here today, and I don't know what the future is holding in store, I don't know where I'm going, I'm not sure where I've been. There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me, my life is worth the living, I don't need to see the end. Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care, like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air. Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care, like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air. Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care, like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air.

Jig Of Life

KATE BUSH "Hounds Of Love"
Hello, old lady. I know your face well. I know it well. She says, Ooh-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na! I'll be sitting in your mirror. Now is the place where the crossroads meet. Will you look into the future? Never, never say goodbye To my part of your life. No, no, no, no, no! Oh, oh, oh, Let me live! She said. C'mon and let me live, girl! She said, C'mon and let me live, girl! ( C'mon and let me live! ) This moment in time, (She said.) It doesn't belong to you, (She said,) It belongs to me, And to your little boy and to your little girl, And the one hand clapping: Where on your palm is my little line, When you're written in mine As an old memory? Ooh, na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na- Never, never say goodbye To my part of your life. Oh no, no, no, no, no! Never, never, never! Never, never let me go! She said, C'mon and let me live, girl!' ( C'mon and let me live! ) She said, C'mon and let me live, girl! ( C'mon and let me live! ) I put this moment..............................................here. I put this moment.........................here. I put this moment-- Over here! Over here! Can't you see where memories are kept bright? Tripping on the water like a laughing girl. Time in her eyes is spawning past life, One with the ocean and the woman unfurled, Holding all the love that waits for you here. Catch us now for I am your future. A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land. Come over here to where When lingers, Waiting in this empty world, Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools. For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave, And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools. We are of the going water and the gone. We are of water in the holy land of water And all that's to come runs in With the thrust on the strand.

Sweet Surrender

ROD STEWART "Body Wishes"
You come to me with open arms trying to rectify my charms You say tonight I'm to be your lover and by the morning light I'm to discover everything that you've held inside of you What's a man like me supposed to do sweet oh sweet surrender sweet, sweet surrender You tell me that you're lonely and you're sad and tonight I'm to be your only man You wear those things that turn my head You ruffle my ego but not my bed Seems like summer when you're close at hand If I seem eager then you'll understand sweet, sweet surrender sweet, sweet surrender Heart is tired and full of doubt now you've sucked me in don't spit me out Lay your head down next to mine and in each others arms we'll entwine Look me straight in the eyes and tell me between your heart and mind I see sweet oh sweet surrender sweet, sweet surrender Surrender

Man To Man

JONI MITCHELL "Wild Things Run Fast"
No demands Just pleasurable sensations Hand in hand No far reaching plans No, no-hand in hand Well I keep on trying to understand Daylight bright How come I keep moving From man to man to man? Giving my sweet love-- Tasting sweet love-- Woman to man Sometimes it's easy You drift with the empty gladness Like it all belongs Sometimes it's low down sadness Like it's all gone so wrong When I saw you standing there I said to myself M-m-m here's a place I could break down and care I'll give him my sweet love-- Taste his sweet love-- Real sweet love-- Woman to man I don't like to lie But I sure can be phony when I get scared I put my nose up in the air Stoney, stoney when I get scared When I saw you standing there I was scared I thought Oh--I hope he can care-- I sure hope I can care-- I hope we can really care-- And share woman to man Cause I've been moving Man to man to man to man to man Oh what am I looking for? Man to man to man to man A lot of good guys gone through my door Man to man to man to man To man to man to man Man to man to man to man Woman to man

Sweet Surrender

JACI VELASQUEZ "Jaci Velasquez"
Sweet Surrender It's not a mysterious wind, And it's not the thunder rollin' in; It's a spirit that I feel within that's callin'. I understand but I can't explain. Now I see love in a different way. And with a single leap of faith, I'm fallin' Into Your loving arms. Showing no resistance, There's a peace that flows over me. Sweet surrender, love me tender. You have captured my desiring heart completely. Sweet surrender, Yours forever. I will gladly give my all to You. Receive me. Oh Lord, I am ever Yours. Your love offers no escape, But I don't feel the need to run away. My heart has found a place to stay here with You. Nothing else could satisfy The deep void that I had inside. From all the worldly battles I had lived through, Now here in Your loving arms, I have gone the distance. I will rest my soul in Your embrace. Sweet surrender, (surrender) love me tender. (tender) You have captured my desiring heart completely. Sweet surrender, (surrender) Yours forever. (forever) I will gladly give my all to You. Receive me. Oh Yes, I have gone the distance. I will rest my soul in Your embrace. Oh, oh, Sweet surrender, (surrender) love me tender. (tender) You have captured my desiring heart completely. Oh Lord, I am ever Yours. Oh Lord, I am ever Yours.

Pray For The Fish

RANDY TRAVIS "Rise And Shine"
Everybody gathered where the river runs wider at the edge of town. To see if that Eddie LeVon baptism, was really gonna go down. Folks bet hard earned money that water wouldn't change a thing. They set the odds at 100 to 1 his soul would never come clean. Then the preacher said people take a moment or two, there's something we need to do. Chorus Pray for the fish! They won't know what's coming. When the sins starts rolling off the likes of him. Lord, be with 'em. They ain't done nothin'. Please won't you leave 'em just a little bit of room to swim. Pray for the fish. Well the preacher ducked him under that cool clear water, then he did it again. Eddie came up yellin', Lord in heaven, hallelujah! I'm a brand new man! Well the water got to bubblin', sky got to rumblin'. and the thunder backed up the chior. The fish started jumpin' it was like they were swimmin', in a lake of fire. The Eddie's momma stepped outta the crowd. And started yellin' out loud: Chorus He said everybody cross your fingers, and fold your hands. Pray for ol' Eddie, but before we say Amen. Pray for the fish. Lord, be with 'em. They ain't done nothin'. Please won't you leave 'em just a little bit of room to swim. Pray for the fish. Lord, pray for the fish.
