Sweet Surrender

This song is by Bread and appears on the album Guitar Man (1972) and on the compilation album Essentials (1996).

Baby I'm through
Running, it's true
I'd be a fool to try to escape you
And maybe I'm beat
But, oh, what a sweet surrender

You keep your rights
I'll take your nights
No one can lose when we turn the lights out
Tasting defeat
Loving that sweet surrender

I'm giving up myself to you
But I didn't really lose at all
I gained the only love I've known
And it never hurt me to fall

Now that it's done
So glad you won
I know our lives have only begun
No more retreat
Only my sweet surrender

Mmm, babe, I may be beat
But, oh, what a sweet surrender
And you, sweet thing in my life
I surrender to you
