In the night I hear you speak
Turn around, you're in my sleep
Feel your hands inside my soul
You're holding on and you won't let go

I've tried running but there's no escape
Can't bend them, and I just can't break these....


CHORUS:
Steel bars, wrapped all around me
I've been your prisoner since the day you found me
I'm bound forever, till the end of time
Steel bars wrapped around this heart of mine


Trying hard to recognize
See the face behind the eyes
Feel your haunting ways like chains
'Round my heart they still remain


CHORUS:


And with every step I take
Every desperate move I make
It's clear to me
What can all my living mean
When time itself is so obscene
When time itself don't mean a thing
I'm still loving you


CHORUS:
