Tim Buckley – Sweet Surrender lyrics

Now you wanna know the reason
Why I cheated on you
Well I had to be a hunter again
This little man had to try
To make love feel new again
'Cause there's just a few things honey
Now you wanna know the reason why I cheated on you, well I had to be a hunter
Again this little man had to try to make love feel new again cause there's just
A few things I'm not old enough to do for you
And they're the things mama You just never cared to show me
And so this loverboy found him a flamingo
And this flamingo showed him how to tango and when they tangoed it would send
Thier hearts a flutter, tease him 'till he stutterd
Made him so young and tender sweet to surrender was so young and tender
Sweet to surrender was so young and tender.
Well now your gonna go out and get yourself a reputation.
But I gonna have to show you where to start.
And then your gonna bring back your little reputation.
And prove to me what I could not prove to you.
Cause I was just to young and hard, just too cold honey
Just too hard to care, just too hard. To surrender, surrender to love.
Sweet surrender, surrender, if we could, just surrender love would heal the
Mess we made.
So give it up mama aint gonna be no good to go round and round. You hurt me,
Then I hurt you again. Oh there's left to do, give it up, give it up and
Surrender to love.
