Prisoner Of Love

Scattered patches of blue and grey
Gone too far to be afraid
Silver clouds swell up to cry
I turn my face up to the sky
Colors run with drops of rain
If you know no love
You feel no pain
Just a prisioner of love

Wild heart know no shame
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Chains to hold back heart of fire
Crystal snow to warm desire
A prisoner of love

Your heart aching
Please stop the pain
Emotionally....ball and chained
Playing over old refrains
Nothing lost nothing gained
Wasting away one more hour
Give it all to gain the power
White dove on an ivory tower
A prisoner of love

A razor in a shakey hand
Just a shadow of a man
On his tear he made a stand
Swallowing down the pain
Nothing learned nothing gained
Facing down the darkest hour
White dove on a ivory tower
A prisoner of love
