"Sweet Surrender"
©2010 Capers Simmons (ASCAP)

Her hair and lips and fingernails,
As blood-red as her skin was pale,
A crown of roses on her brow,
And I felt every thorn.
Her voice, like crying far away,
Called me closer, made me stay,
Promised love if I'd obey
The bloody Queen of Swords.

Now surrender's never sweet, but sweet surrender!
I will render her my dues,
I will fight for her and lose.
Now forever sounds so sweet, but sweetness never
Lasts forever in this life.
I will not lay down and die
Until I enter her sweet surrender.

As I lay down with the Queen of Swords,
The Fool of Hearts marched off to war
And died like those who'd gone before
And he lay down with them.
But I awoke in a jester's cap,
Sword in hand, with a heart-shaped patch
Sewn in motley on my chest,
Upon her empty bed.


I will raise a lone white flag
On the field.
I can never take it back,
So I yield
As I'm making my last stand
Here at your command.
I am still yours.
