Surrender lyrics

Surrender

NORMA
No more wars to fight
White flags fly tonight
You are out of danger now
Battlefield is still
Wild poppies on the hill
Peace can only come when you surrender

Here the tracers fly
Lighting up the sky
But I'll fight on to the end
Let them send their armies
I will never bend
I won't see you now 'til I surrender
I'll see you again when I surrender

Now don't you give me a fancy price just because I'm rich.

JOE
Look, lady, you've got the wrong man.
I had some trouble with my car, I just pulled into your driveway.

NORMA
Get out.

JOE
O.K. And I'm sorry you lost your friend.

NORMA
Get out of here.

JOE
Haven't I seen you somewhere before?

NORMA
Or shall I call my servant?

JOE
Aren't you Norma Desmond? You used to be in pictures.
You used to be big.

NORMA
I am big. It's the pictures that got small.

Once upon a time
Not long ago
The head of any studio
Knew how and when to play his aces
Now they put some
Talentless unknown
Beneath their sacred microphone
We didn't need words
We had faces

Yes, they took all the idols and smashed them
The Fairbanks, the Gilberts, the Valentinos
They trampled on what was divine
They threw away the gold of silence
When all they needed was this face of mine

JOE
Hey! Don't blame me, I'm just a writer.
