Bittersweet Surrender - Lyrics by Matraca Berg


Lyrics

(matraca berg/harry stinson)

Here we are
Clinging to what left of a broken heart
It's gone too far but
I don't think you know it
It ain't over yet
We were walking out the door when our eyes met
How did we forget where we were going
Oh bittersweet surrender baby we can't say goodbye

Oh bittersweet surrender
There's enough love left for one more night
Just another night

We don't know whether to laugh or to cry
Or the reason why we never seem to end it
There's no doubt
We gotta lotta leaving to talk about
Oh no not now it'll wait untill the morning/
Oh bittersweet surrender baby we can't say goodbye

Oh bittersweet surrender
There's enough love left for one more night
Just another night

Oh bittersweet surrender
There's enough love left for one more night
Just another night

There's enough love left for one night
