Lyrics

Surprise Me

Back to all the words

I got a letter from a friend of mine
She said she was just thinking about me
She was driving home on an overcast afternoon
Underneath a canopy of fall leaves
In life there are only a few guarantees
The leaves will change every autumn
In the springtime, they’ll return
You wonder how you ever lived without them
Have you ever had something happen
That takes you by surprise
Reminds you that you are alive
And you do, you do indeed feel
But me, I’m living from moment to moment
One little surprise to the next
Somehow you’re like the leaves
Always changing but always there
You always, yeah you always
You always surprise me


I called up a friend of mine
Said I was just thinking about her
I was driving home on a cool clear day
Just thanking God for all my blessings
Only a few things I know for sure
I can’t wait to hold you again
I can’t sleep when you’re not around
You remind me that everything is ok
Have you ever had something happen
That takes you by surprise
Reminds you, you are alive
And you do, you do indeed feel
I’m wanting to hold you close
It’s surprising how safe you are
I know we’re always changing
I’m not worried, you’re always there
You always, yeah you always
You always surprise me
You always, yeah you always
You always surprise me
