Lyrics

Prison of Love female version

You locked me in your prison and threw away the key.
You closed the door on freedom and captivated me.
I was your one and only slave. Your prisoner from the start.
The prison was suffocating me so I broke out.

Before the walls came down, all we did was fight.
I couldn't take the pressure, and so I took flight.
I drove through Reno, Winnemucca, Salt Lake City, too.
A thousand miles or more just to get away from be you.

I left your prison of love, the walls came tumbling down.
I tried to love you, man, but you only wanted me down.

You spent all the money, every single dime.
Then we had nothing. We didn't have the time.
Your brand new house, your clothes, your car, your shining diamond rings.
I wanted to give you love, but you just wanted things.

When two people love they need to give respect.
The right to be a person is what I should expect.
Saying, “I love you,” doesn't give you the right,
to lock me up inside our home every single night.

I left your prison of love, the walls came tumbling down.
I tried to love you, man, but you only wanted me down.

I’m driving down the road, trying to repent.
I need to be alone... escape your punishment.
I know now why you shut me up and made a prisoner of me.
Your fears put you in prison, too and you wanted company.

I left your prison of love, the walls came tumbling down.
I tried to love you, man, but you only wanted me down.
