BarlowGirl Surrender Lyrics

Last updated: 03/31/2013 08:43:00 AM

My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not 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 own me, My dreams own me.

Say you have a plan for me,
And that you want the best for my life.
Told me the world has yet to see
What you can do with one
That’s committed to your call.
I know of course what I should do
That I can’t hold these dreams forever.
But if I give them now to you
Will you take them
Away forever?
Or can I dream again?

Surrender, surrender
You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can’t you see
My dreams own me, My dreams own me.

yeahh...saaayyy yeah...u say

Surrender, surrender
You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can’t you see
My dreams own me, My dreams own me.

Exactly How I Feel | Reviewer: Audry | 3/30/13

Ive Faced Many Trials In The Past 3 Almost 4 Years And This Song Has Helped Me So Much . Because I Let All My Dreams Go . I Let My Anger Get The Best Of Me . I Lost My Faith In God And I Ran Across This Song . That I forgot I Loved So Much . And It Really Helped Me Relise God Has A Plan On My Life Even If It Is Or Isnt My Dreams . Either Way Its For Gods Purpose . And Im Ready For What He Throws At Me .

love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/7/10

There are so many misconceptions that you should always follow your own dreams. But if my dreams mean not doing God's will, I will throw my dreams out in a heartbeat! I wanna be a singer, God wants me to be a doctor, so be it! Besides I can't control my voice anyway! HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Surrender | Reviewer: Josh | 1/17/09

This song is so beautiful. Everytime i hear it, I can just feel God speaking through it to me. And when He speaks to me, I know that He's telling me to put Him first. He wants me to surrender the dreams that I've developed and molded all of my life and submit to His will. But sometimes, it's just so hard to let go of those things that You've held on to for so long. I get scared. I don't know what God has for me, and it scares me to let go of my own dreams. But I believe that He has the best in store for me. This song has really helped open my eyes to what should be first priority in my life.

Beautiful Message | Reviewer: Aubrey | 9/10/08

Im a senior in High School and this song reflects exactly where I am in my life. MY whole childhood I dreamed wanted I to do when I grew up and not that I basically adult that time is coming quickly. The other day I came across this song randomly and it helped to relize I have to trust in God and give my dreams over to Him and He will lead me in the path He wants me to go. I love this song it has beautiful melody and a powerful and relevent message.

Wonderful Direction | Reviewer: BriAnna | 3/18/08

When I listen to this song, I realized that all the dreams I have are only possible with God. Barlowgirls words helped me to realize that everysingle wish that I have had, and will have are possible because of god. They really helped me strengthen my belief in god.

Wonderfuly written | Reviewer: Kassi | 10/9/07

Over the past 3 or 4 years, I had problems with obsessions and dreams getting in the way of reality. This song helped me give those obsessions to God, and now I'm a better christian woman!

Powerful words | Reviewer: Janelle | 9/3/07

Over many trials in my life the last three years, I've often thought of this song. It expresses so eloquently the cry of my own heart. I know that God has a perfect plan for my life and this song just serves to remind me of that and that He will someday give me the desires of my heart or will conform my desires to His.
