"Surrender" is the ninth song from U2's third album War. This song is notable for U2's guitarist The Edge's use of a German-made Epiphone lap steel.
The song was played live at 118 shows on the War and Unforgettable Fire Tours. It was one of three songs played a few months before the release of the album, making its live debut on December 1, 1982, along with "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "New Year's Day".
Oh the city's alight with lovers and lies
Bright blue eyes
Oh the city is bright
It's brighter than day tonight
