​Surrender

This song is by Sérgio Mendes and appears on the album Arara (1989).

I have thoughts I can't explain
When lightning strikes the night
Tell me why the sky is blue
What I feel when I look at you

Help me solve this mystery
A shadow on my wall
Makes me think you're watching me
Or is it something I dreamed?

How to ask desire to stay
The perfect chemistry
I say things I shouldn't say
Trouble loves to play
Carry me away

Until I draw a spark
Straight from your heart
Signal in the dark
You send me
You send me
You send me
Opposites attract
Under attack
Please don't hold it back
Give in to sweet surrender

Daylight leaves me wondering
What happened in the night
Tell me how the sky turned blue
Like the sea when a storm is due

Let's explore this mystery
I don't think I'm alone
You've been leaving clues for me
Waiting to see how far I'll go

To ask desire to stay
The perfect chemistry
You say things you shouldn't say
Trouble loves to play
Carry you away

Until I draw a spark
Straight from your heart
Signal in the dark
You send me
You send me
You send me
Opposites attract
Under attack
Please don't hold it back
Give in to sweet surrender
