  • I surrender to your heart babe
    Do anything that you want me to do
    Please be tender I'm in your hands girl
    This is a feeling I never knew
    You know I tried to make it on my own
    That's not the way it was meant to be
    Spend my time waiting by the phone
    Oh darling come back to me

    I surrender, I surrender
    I'm giving up the role of pretender
    Oh be tender, Girl be tender
    Can't you feel the love that I send her
    I surrender

    I remember, seems like a lifetime
    Can't believe it's a matter of days
    Since you left me I'm near to heartbreak
    I want you so bad don't turn away
    What does it take to stay by my side
    You know I'll do what you want me to
    Don't take away this feeling inside
    I'm still in love with you

    I surrender, I surrender
    I'm giving up the role of pretender
    I remember, I remember
    Can't you feel the love that I send her
    I surrender

    I surrender, I surrender
    Darling now won't you be tender
    Surrender, oh surrender
    Feel the love that I send her
    I surrender Writer/s: RUSSELL GLYN BALLARD

  • Desertghostrider from Yakima WaAwesome song. Awesome vocals from Dio. I saw Rainbow in concert many years ago in Long Beach,CA. Never forget it. God Bless the late Ronnie James Dio.
  • Don from Sevierville, TnI think this song has some Scorpions influence soundwise. Interesting - singer Joe Lynn Turner would also be in Deep Purple from 1990-92 and keyboard player Don Airey has been in Deep Purple since 2002. Airey also worked with Whitesnake, fronted by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale (Coverdale was in Deep Purple from 1973-76). At different times, Whitesnake also featured Jon Lord and Ian Paice of Deep Purple and Cozy Powell, formerly of Rainbow.
