prisoner of love lyrics – pat benatar

cold hard labor, it’s a labor of love
convicted of crimes, the crimes of p*ssion
caught in a chain gang, the chain of fools
solitary confinement, confined by the rules

i’m just a prisioner
an inmate of love
oh i’m a prisioner
captured by love
with no escape
no where to go
no place to hide
hey, i’m a prisioner!
i’m just a prisioner

mending the wounds, the wounds of lament
the knife cut deep, deep into my heart
the romance is over, my p*ssions remain
still bound to love by this ball and chain

i’m just a prisioner
an inmate of love
oh i’m a prisioner
captured by love
with no escape
no where to go
no place to hide
hey, i’m a prisioner!
i’m just a prisioner

oh i’m a prisioner
hey, i’m a prisioner!

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 prisioner
a prisioner of love
i’m just a prisioner
a prisioner of love
hey, i’m a prisioner
i’m just a prisioner
