A prisoner cries in the dark of his cell
He knows the price of livin' in hell
Nobody sees, nobody hears
But nothin' falls as hard as a prisoner's tears

I've never been locked behind walls of stone
But I've been a prisoner deep down in my bones
No judge and no jury but the sentence is clear
And nothin' falls as hard as a prisoner's tears

Counting the days, wonderin' when
This prisoner's heart will finally mend

Counting the days, wonderin' when
This prisoner's heart will finally mend
They say I'm free now but they can't feel my pain
They don't see my shackles but I'm livin' in chains
Love made the walls, love keeps me here
Well, nothin' falls as hard as a prisoner's tears
Nothin' falls as hard as a prisoner's tears
A prisoner cries in the dark of his cell
