"Prisoner of Hope" as written by Gerald Dewey Metcalf and Sterling L. Whipple....
My friends say she's sophisticated and free, Never fall for an outlaw like me
Too high and refined, I'm just wastin' my time, Forget her

But I'm kind of caught in the web
the lady has gone to my head
I no longer cope, I'm a prisoner of hope since I met her

I'm a prisoner of hope, just trying to win the smile in her eyes, the touch of her skin
she would discount me as one of her friends
somehow I know where the friendship would end
with her in my arms and her by my side
with her in my days and her in my nights
making up love out of pure fantasy
prisoners of hope never want to be free.

Yesterday I caught her in a glance
more than a coincidence
but she turned away as if to say "I'm above it"
she says that love is a trick of the night and it's all done with mirrors and lights
but when I act like a fool like some kid back in school, she loves it

CHORUS (repeat until fade)
