Sweet Surrender Lyrics

Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin' for something that I can believe in
Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life
There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me to

    He was actually forecasting his "end". Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air.

    'Lost and alone on some forgotten highway,travelled by many, remembered by few' seems to suggest travelling through life as we all do but only a few think deeply about where their life is going and only few of us have a 'thought we believe in' in other words a goal to attain before 'the end'.

    This song expresses an excitement for the future, and how one should surrender to their true desire to live their life the way they want to rather than becoming trapped the binds of society and stress. John Denver's song encourages us to live in the moment.
