She came her to see me today
In prison where I have to stay
But this time she came here
To tell me goodbye

Pretending that I understood
I held back the tears best I could
But I know that she knew
I wanted to cry

'Cause my hands are tied
I'm locked here inside
I want her, I need her, I love her
But my hands are tied

Her visits kept my world alive
Our love found the way to survive
But now it's all over
I've lost her for good

She waited with arms open wide
Till somebody else stepped inside
But I know she waited
As long as she could

'Cause my hands are tied
I'm locked here inside
I want her, I need her, I love her
But my hands are tied
