Why do you punish me for loving you

You're counting my mistakes how about yours

Why do you sentence me too nice of tears

Convicting all these dreams I've dreamed for all these years

My heart cries out behind these prison bars

It pleads to you for your true love to set it free

Why do you punish me is love a crime

If so I'll spend the lifetime loving serving time

[ ac.guitar - piano ]

My heart cries out behind...
