Surrender doesn’t come naturally
It goes against everything we think we know
It reveals imperfection letting weakness show
And we can’t be weak we must be strong
We must be strong for ourselves and our family
We must lead our children and our wives
For as we know only the strongest survives
We fight for their rights we are modern day knights
It’s a war zone out there with our souls on the line
A battle of good and evil of temporal and divine
But there can be freedom in surrender
When we lay down our burdens and chains
We find a love so soft and tender
We can sing and dance unrestrained
I have found there is power when my knees touch the ground
A peace and strength that, nowhere else, can be found
Bowed down with my head to the floor
It is surrender, but it’s so much more
