Chris Murray – Doin' Time lyrics

I can't eat, I can't sleep
Been lying on the bunk all week
Yes this charge I can't beat
Is keeping me off the street
Sent me down one more year
Just waiting for the papers to clear
Oh it seems like I'm just doin' time without you

Locked me down in the hole
To polish my tarnished soul
Yes the filth and the grime
Have opened up my mind
Yes I know I deserve
The sentence that's being served
Yes it seems like I'm just doin' time without you

I've told the truth, confessed my crime
Kept my behavior good, read the good book line by line
Yes my lesson is learned
I'm ready to be returned
But it seems like I'm just doin' time without you

Time moves so slow behind these gates
And all there is to do
Pound my pile of rocks and wait
Mark each day on the wall
And dream about a freedom call
Oh it seems like I'm just doin' time without you
