Ten long years I spent in the sun
Where I broke my back to avoid the gun
But I never cracked and never gave you up
I just did my time for you

Yeah, I can't leave you now
Yeah, I got nowhere to go anyhow

(How's that for a compliment girl?
How's that for a compliment?)

When you sleep, don't dream of me
I don't want to break your heart 'til I'm breaking free
When I get out I'm gonna run with ya
We're gonna make our way to America

Yeah, I can't leave you now
Yeah, I got nowhere to go anyhow

Ten long years I spent in the sun
(Yeah)
Where I broke my back to avoid the gun
(I can't leave you now)
But I never cracked and I never gave you up
(Yeah)
I just did my time for you
(I got nowhere to go anyhow)

They can call me public enemy
Brand my skin for treachery
What they long to have
They can't take away from me

My hope is going by the power of love
The highest wall that they erect is not a prison enough
And like a river that is running takes it water to sea
The only ending that is fitting is you and me baby

Yeah, I can't leave you now
Yeah, I got nowhere to go anyhow

When you sleep, don't dream of me
(Yeah)
I don't want to break your heart 'til I'm breaking free
(I can't leave you now)
When I get out I'm gonna run with ya
(Yeah)
We're gonna make our way to America
(I got nowhere to go anyhow)
