LYRICS:
“Then I Will Surrender”

You keep calling me
showin’ me a vision opposite of what I see
It’s the gravest cruelty
’cause I know I’m not
and I don’t see the beauty and the grace you say I’ve got
Oh, but please don’t stop

And there’s a picture that
you keep showin’ me
and you say I’m in the photograph
and I just have to laugh

’cause listen I’m no fool
I was taught to know my place
and what I couldn’t do
but if your words ring true

That I can be anything that I will myself be
an unlimited potential can become reality
and if the slightest validation shows me
but a trace of truth
then I will surrender to you
then I will surrender to you

Even in my sleep
the grand parade comes marching through with all that I can be
The possibilities
and you keep pushing me
to step into the light outside my insecurities
and so if I believe

That I can be anything that I will myself be
an unlimited potential can become reality
and if the slightest validation
shows me but a trace of truth
then I will surrender to you
then I will surrender to you

You know you’re either
a pillar of the truth
or some confidence-deceiver
and I so wanna believe ya’

That I can be anything that I will myself be
an unlimited potential can become reality
and if the slightest validation
shows me but a trace of truth
then I will surrender to you
then I will surrender to you

I’m drawing ever-closer to the truth
then I will surrender to you
I will surrender
I will surrender to you
Oooh…
