i surrender, dear lyrics – bing crosby

we’ve played the game of ‘stay away’
but it costs more than i can pay
without you i can’t make my way
i surrender, dear.

i may seem proud and i may act gay
that’s just a pose, i’m not that way.
cause deep down in my heart i say,
i surrender, dear.

those little mean things we were doing
must have been part of the game
lending a spice to the wooing
oh, but i don’t care who’s to blame

when stars appear and shadows fall
then you’ll hear my poor heart call
to you my love, my life, my all
i surrender, dear

—— instrumental break ——

oh, to you my love, my life, my all
i surrender, dear
