Time has come to say goodbye
To the broken memories
They're locked inside like prisoners
In a place that no-one sees

Stayed up late with a friend of mine
Southern Comfort till dawn
We talked about the pains of love
Should've known from
The start you were wrong

I'm just a prisoner
Don't wanna lock myself away
Prisoner - I get so lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner
Just when do you think love will stay
It walks right out on you - out on you

Tired blood runs through my veins
But I can't get no sleep
You lock my heart
In these prison walls
This place I've got to leave

I'm a prisoner
Don't wanna lock myself away
Prisoner - I get so lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner
Just when do you think love will stay
It walks right out on you - out on you

The sky is grey, it's raining
Like the storm in my heart
There ain't no use explaining
'Cause I'm leaving, leaving

Won't somebody set me free
Take me away from this misery
I get so lonely
I get so lonely, lonely, lonely
Won't somebody set me free
Please, please, set me free
