Nilsson

Sweet surrender
On the wings of a dove you came to me in
Sweet surrender
Now I'm lost and love is the cost of
Sweet surrender
Sweeter than a victory, warmer than a memory
Sweet surrender
Warm and tender, it's the big up-ender, mm mm mm.

Sweet forgiveness
Sweeter than a melon tree, softer than a willow'd be
Sweet, sweet forgiveness
You came to me then you set me free with
True emotion
Sweet surrender
Warm and tender, it's the big up-ender, yeah yeah yeah.

At first I thought it was you, just euphemy
Then I realized how wrong I could be
First I thought it was your apology
Then I realized how wrong pride could be.

Sweet surrender
Warm and tender, it's the big up-ender, mm yeah yeah.

Sweet surrender, yeah
On the wings of a dove you set me free with sweet surrender.
