Alone from night to night you’ll find me
Too weak to break the chains that bind me
I need no shackles to remind me, I’m just a prisoner of love
For one command I stand and wait now
From one who’s master of my fate now
I can’t escape for it’s too late now, I’m just a prisoner of love
Bridge: What’s the good of my caring
If someone is sharing those arms with me?
Although she has another, I can’t have another for I’m not free
She’s in my dreams awake or sleeping
Upon my knees to her I’m creeping
My very life is in her keeping, I’m just a prisoner of love
