Remember (Surrender)

Golden moments turn to dust
slowly settle down to rust
They all see the second hand
shift to the right
The blues and the reds
fade to grey
The world is eclipsed
as the stars in the night
Seem old and in the way

You see it in their eyes
remember
You see it in their eyes
surrender

Neutral colors
failing sight
a dull-edged picture
in black and white

Look over their shoulders
in search of a past
That's already left them behind
Through rose-colored glasses
no shadows are cast
They've long ago made up their minds

You see it in their eyes
remember
You see it in their eyes
surrender

When the simplest things
seem like miracles
When push comes to shove
They shut the drawers
and lock their doors
And turn their backs on love

Where angels dance
on the heads of pins
Where caution ends
the road begins
Now I know the consequence
show me the truth
I'll open my heart
I will trust
I'll kick down the walls
that get in the way
I'll love you 'cause I know I must

You see it in their eyes
remember
You see it in their eyes
surrender

You see it in their eyes
remember
You see it in their eyes
surrender
