I Surrender

Full Text

Refrain:
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender my useless things
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender for the peace it brings

2 All my shiny things, jewelry and rings
Let them go, there is no happiness they bring
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender my useless things
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender for the peace it brings

3 Honors I have won, things that I have done
All this pride I push aside, it's not who I've become
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender my useless things
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender for the peace it brings

4 Wealth misunderstood, earned as much I could
Now I don't care, let it go where it will do some good
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender my useless things
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender for the peace it brings.
