Aretha Franklin — I Surrender, Dear lyrics

We played the game
Of stay away
But it cost more
Than I can take

Without you
I can't make my way
I surrender, dear

Now I must seem proud
I may act gay
But it's just a pose
I'm not that way

'Cause deep down
Deep down in my heart
I say, I surrender, dear

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, blame

When stars appear
And shadows fall
Why didn't you hear
My poor heart call

To you, my love
My life, my all
I surrender, dear

Oh, I, I surrender, dear
Oh, yeah, I
Oh, Isurrender, yeah, dear
Yeah, yeah
