Here are the lyrics of the song: “Surrender“
Burning with a strange desire
And I know, each time I kiss you
That your heart’s on fire tooSo, my darling, please surrender
All your love so warm and tender
Let me hold you in my arms, dear
While the moon shines bright aboveAll the stars will tell the story
Of our love and all its glory
Let us take this night of magic
And make it a night of loveWon’t you please surrender to me
Your lips, your arms, your heart, dear
Be mine forever
Be mine tonight
