Leverage – Sentenced lyrics

I remember
I recall
Like it was yesterday
As I drag the ball and the chain

Lifetime has gone
No parole, there's no getaway
Time'll be done my dying day

Doesn't matter how it all went
Doesn't matter how it started
No-one else was left to blame

Sentenced
Why couldn't you just turn and walk away
She whispered, tears in her eyes
Somewhere in my mind
I knew there would be hell to pay
I tried to keep my pride
I was sentenced for life

I didn't lie
I didn't fight
Didn't try to run away
Just raised my hands and dropped the gun

All was calm
When they came
All was said and done
And I just watched the smoke go down, down, down

I finished what they started
Doesn't matter how it all went
All was gone just the same

Sentenced
Why couldn't you just turn and walk away
She whispered, tears in her eyes
Somewhere in my mind
I knew there would be hell to pay
I tried to keep my pride

Hide it all inside
I was sentenced for life
