Sail me down this river / Let the current carry me
Bridges passing over head / As it draws me to the sea
I can't seem to fight it / And wouldn't if I could
So I just surrender

You know I loved you / God knows we tried
But matters of the heart / Don't always fall in line
like tiny little soldiers / scattered in the fight
that have to surrender

No one said it would be easy / and it can only be so kind
Love is so misleading / when it's so desired
And halfway up the mountain / you can get so tired and have to surrender
to the path of least resistance / where the river flows

so I just surrender, I just surrender, so I just, so I just surrender

Sail me down this river / Let the current carry me...
