"The Prisoner" as written by and Orton,beth/orbit,william....
Time has come to say goodbye to broken memories
Locked inside like prisoners, in a place that no one sees

[Chorus]
I'm a prisoner, go on and lock myself away
Just a prisoner, lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner, just when you think love will stay

It walks right out on you, out on you (oooh)
Stayed up late with a friend of mine, sodden comfort till dawn
Talked about the pain of love, should've known from the start you were wrong

[Chorus]

The sky is grey, it's rainin', like the storm in my heart
There ain't no use explainin', 'cause I'm leavin', leavin', leavin', gone

Tired blood runs through my veins, but I can't get no sleep
Locked my heart in these prison walls, this place I got to leave

[Chorus: x2]

(I'm a prisoner) Oh, you gotta let me go
(Just a prisoner) Just can't take no more (lonely, lonely)
(I'm a prisoner) Oh, you gotta let me leave
(Walks right out on you) Out on you

[Repeat Chorus]
