Sweet Surrender (Sarah McLachlan - Surfacing)

                Em                    C           G
It doesn't mean much, it doesn't mean anything at all
D                       Em           C
   The life I've left behind me is a cold one
                 Em             C              G
I've crossed the last line from where I cannot turn 
      D            Em              C           G
Where every step I took in faith betrayed me
    D      Em   C
And let me fall down

D     C   G    Em         C              D   Em        G
Swee--ee--ee--t surrender  is all I ever had   to give
        Em      C               G     
Take me now, no questions asked
 D                       Em               C
     You strip away the otherness that surrounds me
           Em          C            G
Are you an angel, am I already that gone
D                  Em           C            G
  I just hope that I won't disappoint you
         D         Em    C
When I'm down here on my knees

D     C   G     Em          C              D    Em
Swee--ee--ee--t   surrender  is all that I have   to give
D     C   G     Em          C              D    Em
Swee--ee--ee--t   surrender  is all that I have   to give

      Am                       D
And I don't understand how the touch of your hand
G                          C
     I would be the one to fall
           Am                 D
I miss the little things
       Am                     D
I miss everything about you
                Em
It doesn't mean much
                C           G
It doesn't mean anything at all
D                      Em                   C
  The life I've left behind me is a me is a cold one

D     C   G    Em         C              D   Em
Swee--ee--ee--t surrender  is all I ever had   to give
D     C   G     Em          C              D    Em
Swee--ee--ee--t   surrender  is all that I have   to give

I posted this tab 20 years ago when I was 17 (and the internet was shiny and new!), deciphering the lyrics from a tape I recorded from the radio, and I got a few wrong. Corrected Lyrics in BOLD. Fun to find it here.

D Em C
The life I left behind me is a cold ROOM
Em C G
I crossed the last line from where I CAN RETURN
D Em C G
Where every step I took in faith betrayed me
D Em C
And LED ME FROM MY HOME

D C G Em C D Em G
Swee--ee--ee--t surrender is all THAT I had to give
Em C G
YOU TAKE ME IN, no questions asked
D Em C
You strip away the UGLINESS that surrounds me
Em C G
Are you an angel, am I already that gone?
D Em C G
I ONLY hope that I won't disappoint you
D Em C
When I'm down here on my knees

D C G Em C D Em
Swee--ee--ee--t surrender is all that I have to give
D C G Em C D Em
Swee--ee--ee--t surrender is all that I have to give

Am D
And I don't understand how AT the touch of your hand
G C
I would be the one to fall
Am D
I miss the little things
Am D
I miss everything about you
