Emily Jane White – Surrender Lyrics

Surrender Lyrics – Emily Jane White

I felt the vines move within
I felt my heart bleed again
By not a stranger, by not a friend
And with its words it pulled me in

Out on the road, hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender

I watched it move from the ceiling to the floor
Was it you or it I adored?
A hypnotism impossible to ignore
The more I took, it took me more

Out on the road, hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender

I held on to the reins
Let go or be dragged in its name
And the clouds parted ways
And I looked back at you, set fire, set ablaze
And I walked down the streets for miles
A gaunt face held in exile
And I walked through the streets for miles
A gaunt face held in exile

‘Cause I was out on the road hailing to survive
Held by something that never wanted me alive
Shot the glimmer straight out of my eyes
Flowers laid bare for when I’m ready to lie in surrender

In surrender
In surrender
In surrender
