Surrender Lyrics - Barlow Girl
Review The Song (6)
My hands hold safely to my dreams
clutching tightly no one has fallen
So many years I've shaped each one
Reflecting my heart showing who I am
Now you're asking me to show
What I'm holding oh so tightly
Can't open my hands can't let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Can't you let me go?
Surrender, surrender you whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can't you see?
My dreams are me. My dreams are me
You say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life
Told me the world had yet to see
What you can do with one
That's committed to Your calling
I know of course what I should do
That I can't hold these dreams forever
If I give them now to You
Will You take them away forever?
Or can I dream again?

True love | Reviewer: Jamie | 3/11/09
I think this song can touch anyone going through times where we are not allowing God to live through us,rather it be letting a boy go or anything else that may be getting in the way of God's plans for us. I know it has a different effect on people,but glad it is effecting them. You girls keep on singing and doing what the lord had called you to do. May god bless you.
My plan vs. His... | Reviewer: ~Dorothy | 1/17/08
In our lives we have ideas about how our story will play out. We have hopes and dreams for our futures if only for the next hour. We plan in our minds, and with time those things take root and settle in our being. We hold onto them like priceless treasures, we don't want to loose them. We work toward them, making plans not taking into account what God may have for us or for what purpose He has created us. Trials come, and He works through them; He gets our attention. He asked, would you surrender all that you have committed yourself to for Me? Would you trade your dreams for what I have for you? Would you give up all those things and come with me? Would you trust me and know that I love you? Would you that I know best for your life? I am your Father, your creator. "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee..." Jeremiah 1:5 KJV We hold on, and hold on, and hold on, and hold on...afraid to let go of our dreams. They are now part of our lives. We fight, we struggle and we grasp to hold on to them thinking we can have our dreams and His plan. He gently continues to whisper trust me, surrender to me, allow me to use you, allow my plan for your life, know that I love you. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
Put your dreams aside, open your heart to Him, know that His promises are true! You can't even phathom what He has for you. Our finite minds can't even dream that BIG! Be Blessed!

in crist | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/07
this song is not about her being in love with a man its about her faith in god ..he is asking her to put her faith in him and he will make everything alright in her life and she is struggling to give herself completely to him in fear of loosing control of herself in the process
perfect | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/10/07
this song is amazing. and i can barely listen to it without crying. it sounds like me, im trying to give up on someone who likes another girll..im only 14. so i didnt plan on my life with him, but i struggle with an eating disorder. and losing him just made things so much worse. i love this song, and all of barlow girls songs <3
So right on | Reviewer: Melanie | 10/17/06
This song sounds like me so much. I had these dreams of being with this guy and I didn't want to let go of those dreams of a future with him. but I realize I have to now. It's not healthy for me if he will not let me forget my past. I want to sing this song at my church how can I get a single for it? I have already looked for it. It would mean a lot to me if I could, I could reach maybe someone else through it to let go of their dreams too and see what God can do for them too. If you girlz could point me in the right direction to find it. I would greatly appreciate it. All your songs are so true. God is really using you to reach the world. God bless you always!
