The law of love has ruled again, dear
You said goodbye and went your way
In chains of sorrow you have bound me
I'm a prisoner of your love today.

You said your mind had reached the verdict
You've been the judge right from the start
The sentence that you gave me, darlin'
Was a lap of tears and a broken heart.

I counted ev'ry star up yonder
I've watched the moon in heaven so bright
They seem to share the pain you left me
That lingers in my heart tonight.

Perhaps some day you'll grant a pardon
Perhaps someday bring back the key
And open up this lock of love, dear
And let this weary heart go free...
