Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

The thing about surrendering…

Surrendering your trust and love to someone. On a scale of none to ten, it’s a fear factor of one. If you surrender you give up the battle. Hmm. Give up the battle. Give the battle the axe? Hmm. The Shins’ James Mercer talking about transparency in lyrics (changin’ it up this week):

Subject: Surrendering to love
Key note: James Mercer


Pull quote on love [James Mercer]:

“The first time I’ve really surrendered to love.

”The worries that you have with the risk involved. What you risk when you really give your heart to somebody. I was not going to let that fear get in the way of this one [his wife].”

Yours truly,
