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. :(

    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.

    So true. I've got a thing for my friend's sister. She always goes out to the bar to get with some guys and whenever we hang out she sometimes says she thinks she's a w***e because of this. So I comfort her and tell her she's amazing because it's true. I can't bring myself to tell her my feelings because of what it would do to our relationship and to my friend too. She's the one person I've truly loved but I know that if I say anything I'll never see her again. So I have to watch her try and get some with shallow guys who like her only for her body for one night. Why does Billy Tallent have to make such amazing sad songs?
