I'd rather be lonely
Than to lose you
I'd rather be blue
Than to be all alone

'Cause if you leave me
My heart would grieve me
And my poor heart, no, no
Just couldn't stand the pain

Though your love
Has got me in captivity, yeah
Yet if you should leave me
I know I would die

Yeah, in other words
In other words, listen
I just couldn't take it, baby
I couldn't stand
For you to say goodbye

Now I'm just a prisoner
For your good loving
I'm just a slave, yes
Bound and chained

No, no, I don't ever wanna be free
So please don't ever leave me

For my poor heart (my poor heart)
No, it just couldn't stand the pain
(Stand the pain)

Though your love
Oh, yeah, got me in captivity
Yet if you should leave me
I know I would die

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
In other words, in other words
I just couldn't take it, baby
I couldn't stand, ho
To say goodbye (say goodbye)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm just a prisoner, oh
For your good loving, yes, I am
Yes, I'm just a slave (slave)
Bound and chained
(Bound and chained)

No, no, no, no
I don't ever wanna be free
Oh, no, so don't ever leave me
For my poor heart (my poor heart)
Just couldn't stand the pain
(Stand the pain)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm just a prisoner
(I'm just a prisoner)
Just a prisoner

I done tried
I done tried and
I can't live without him...
