i surrender dear lyrics – jimmy rushing

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

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

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