Billy Talent – Surrender lyrics

She reads a book from across the street
Waiting for someone that she'll never meet
Talk over coffee for an hour or two
She wonders why I'm always in a good mood

Killing time before she struts her stuff
She needs support and I've become the crutch
She'll never know how much she means to me
I'd play the game but I'm the referee

[Chorus:]
(Surrender)
Every word, every thought, every sound
(Surrender)
Every touch, every smile, every frown
(Surrender)
All the pain we've endured until now
(Surrender)
All the hope that I lost you have found
(Surrender) Yourself to me

Even though I know what I'm looking for
She's got a brick wall behind her door
I'd travel time and confess to her
But I'm afraid she'd shoot the messenger

[Chorus:]

I think I found a flower in a field of weeds
I think I found a flower in a field of weeds
Searching until my hands bleed
This flower don't belong to me
I think I found a flower in a field of weeds
I think I found a flower in a field of weeds
Searching until my hands bleed
This flower don't belong to me
This flower don't belong to me
Why can't she belong to me?

Every word, every thought, every sound
Every touch, every smile, every frown
All the pain we've endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

[Chorus:]
(Surrender)
Every word, every thought, every sound
(Surrender)
Every touch, every smile, every frown
(Surrender)
All the pain we've endured until now
(Surrender)
All the hope that I lost you have found

(Surrender)
I never had the nerve to ask
(Surrender)
Has my moment come and passed?
(Surrender)
I never had the nerve to ask
(Surrender)
Has my moment come and passed?
(Surrender)
I never had the nerve to ask
(Surrender)
Has my moment come and passed?
(Surrender)
I never had the nerve to ask

    This is an awesome song and is, like a lot of people, how my love life is, secret. I love this girl from school, nine years I've known her and now I will never get that chance again cos she's getting married.
    Every moment we spent together talking, playing football etc was the best of my life, yet she never knew what I felt. I'm 21 now and still can never let my feelings known to anyone, never had a girlfriend and all because I have no bottle. This song holds a lot of meaning for me.

    Awh that guy who commented on this song, that sucks. I'm sorry you have to go throught that.
    My bestfriend Josh, this is him to the max. Sadly I'm the girl. And I feel horrible about it. I love him, I really do, it's just it's not inlove kinda love. But I can't live without him. I'm the most selfish person around to want to be with him when all he wants is me to actually 'be' with him.
    I'm sooo sorry Josh, I'm a horrible person, you deserve so much more better then me. I hate myself to the core. I deserve this pain. I just wish you didn't have to go through it too.

    I liked a girl back in Grade 12 of high school who actually liked me as well. I had never talked to her but in class, strange things happened between us. I'm a passive guy so asking a girl out is really awkward for me. I'd never dated or kissed a girl in my life (still have not to be honest). I didn't ask her out because I was so scared that I would not be able to last with her. So, I let her go and did not ask her out thinking it would be better for both of us. Unfortunately, it's been almost 3 years after this incident and I regret it.
    Now, she's with someone else and in a much better position in her life. I, on the other hand am at an all time low in mine. This girl would have been the only girl I would have ever dated in my life and I blew it. :(

    Well, I think I have an avarege story but since I have othing left to doim gona let you have it:
    I love a girl(big suprise: ()we ve been friends for quite a wile I even sit next to her in class (myluck:@) but guess what? My best friend loves her too:@because shes hot, seriously I prefer she wasnt. Were always togheter in school us 3 the only difference is that he said he loves her I havnt and I think she would be happyer with him that a self relyng b*****d like me. I try to leave them alone but were still friends when their fluttering I try to look the othr way around and not to cry. I'm the referre between them and I try not to bother them but is difficult because I really love her. Hidden.
    Heart you gave me a lot to think and I guess that if I tell her she would feel that. Shes going to another college anyway guess why?
    Yes because of another boy who betraid her I try to cheer her up but I'm not good enough(remember self relyng bastard) I don't hink I'm ever going to forget her but shel forget me. In a year or so she would hask: whos taht nerd?
    I don't want to end like throbin hood. But is difficult: (
    btw throbin piece of advice wen the priest sayz speak now or forever hold their breths you say you love her and always did.
    Xd. Sorry not funny I judt need to laugh.

    In my opinion, this song is being in love with a girl you don't have the strength to talk to because you are afraid of what she would think. I also believe that this song represents the "want" to be with and share every feeling, thought or sound you ever had with someone you can trust.
    I live this song evry day. Simply cause I spent to long alone and what little heart I had left has shriveled up and faded away.
