Sweet Surrender

Story Behind The Song

Young love! Young man and lady jump into the pickup and runaway for a bit to the west coast. She instigates it - gives the feeling she's a wild gypsy soul and he's in love with her. Turns out it was short relationship because she left in the fall (maybe college maybe just life in general pulled her away). However, looking back he wouldn't change a thing about the experience.

Lyrics

Chorus:
OH, Sweet Surrender
If only I knew then what I know now
Oh Sweet surrender
Wouldnt change a thing if I knew how
Not even if I knew how

Vs 1
Came up to me on a summers day and said its time to run away
Lets head out to the West Coast
That sparkle was in her eyes made my chest fall and rise
You know I could never tell her no

Vs2
So we jumped into that old pickup truck, it was always full of junk
(but) We smiled off into the sunset
She slid over close to me I can still remember those faded jeans
I think they were the same as when we first met

Chorus

We got a room on the coast, it was like we were seeing ghosts
And living someone elses dream
Spending time in the sand and always holding hands
She was everything to me

Chorus

Turns out that was like a summer's day and real life wasn't far away
But I didn't know until the fall
Sometimes people really have to go, even when have to know
There's aint no reason at all

Chorus
