Pat Benatar – Prisoner Of Love lyrics

Cold hard labor, it's the labor of love
Convicted of crimes, the crimes of passion
Caught in a chain gang, the chain of the fools
Solitary confinement, confined by the rules
I'm just a prisoner, an inmate of love, oh I'm a prisoner captured by love
With no escape, nowhere to go, no place to hide
Hey I'm a prisoner, I'm just a prisoner
Mendin' the wounds, the wounds of the mad
The knife cut deep, deep into my heart
The romance is over, my passions remain
Still bound to love by this fallen chain
Oh I'm a prisoner, hey I'm a prisoner
Find an escape, a key to the door, I gotta get out, can't take anymore
Make a clean break to bury the past
I'll shed these chains and be free at last
I'm just a prisoner, a prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner, a prisoner of love
Hey I'm a prisoner, I'm just a prisoner
