Sarah McLachlan - Sweet Surrender - Lyrics Meaning

Sarah McLachlan amazed her fans yet again when she released her song, Sweet Surrender. Her melodic instrumentals and angelic voice blended together perfectly in this song about surrender.

Sweet surrender refers to how there comes a point in some peoples' lives where they lean on a person or group of people who are accepting and welcoming. They often come at a point where there is nothing left of that person, nothing to hide, no means for covering up the negative aspects of their personality, and come with nothing but the ability to surrender everything to the one who is helping them.

The Sweet Surrender song, much like other songs of McLachlan's musical pieces, has general meanings that can be applied in a variety of situations. That is one of the things that her fans love about her songs, is that while her songs have a specific purpose and meaning, they tend not to be tied to a specific situation. Her versatility along with her smooth, easy to listen to voice makes her songs a hit among anyone who listens to her music. Sweet Surrender has been applied to situations about a new love, a love left behind, giving up, surrendering to being helped, and many others that people see fit when they need a bit of musical inspiration to help themselves or their loved ones through a difficult time.

I've listened to it for years. Today it hit me watching the video. I think I about going through hard time. With no hope. But still pushing on. Then you accomplish your dream finally. But then you realize that you can let go of the person you have been, she is gone. And finally become the person you deserve to be be.
