Song #5: I Surrender

you followed me down the lake
to take our lives
to go ahead and make somethin’ out of this
to take away the knives
you wanted to rearrange a life
with both of us at once
you wanted our star to rise

I had told you ”no” before
still you held my hand
and kissed my cheek
as the moonshine turned to rain
as the stars turned to clouds

don’t you see that I am choking?
choking on the words for you
don’t you see that I am broken?
broken thanks to you

(instrumental)

don’t you see that I am choking?
choking on the words for you
don’t you see that I am broken?
broken thanks to you

and at last the sun breaks through
and I can’t help that I surrender
surrender to you

–Aki
