Alone from night to night you'll find me Too weak to break the chains that bind me I need no shackles to remind me I'm just a prisoner of love For one command I stand and wait now From one who's master of my fate now I can't escape, for it's too late now I'm just a prisoner of love What's the good of my caring If someone is sharing those arms with me Although she has another I can't have another, for I'm not free She's in my dreams, awake or sleeping Upon my knees to her I'm creeping My very life is in her keeping I'm just a prisoner of love (Orchestral Interlude) What's the good of my caring If someone is sharing those arms with me Although she has another I can't have another, for I'm not free She's in my dreams, awake or sleeping Upon my knees, to her I'm creeping My very life is in her keeping I'm just a prisoner of love ++++++++++ As recorded by BILLY ECKSTINE: Alone from night to night you'll find me Too weak to break the chains that bind me I need no shackles to remind me I'm just a prisoner of love For one command I'll stand and wait now For one who's master of my fate now I can't escape, for it's too late now I'm just a prisoner of love What's the good of my caring If someone is sharing those arms with me Though she has another I can't have another, for I'm not free You're in my dreams, awake or sleeping Upon my knees to you I'm creeping My very soul is in her keeping For I'm just a prisoner of love I had a heart so true Now I have none and you have two So don't give me the runaround For you know I'm forever bound To be your prisoner of love ++++++++++ As recorded by JAMES BROWN: Alone from night to night you'll find me Too weak to break those chains that bind me I need no shackles to remind me I'm just a prisoner, don't let me be a prisoner For one command I stand and wait now From one who's master of my fate now I can't escape, for it's too late now I'm just a prisoner, don't let me be a prisoner What's the good of my caring If someone is sharing those arms, but not with me Although she has another But I can't have another, for I'm, I'm not free She's in my dreams, awake or sleeping Upon my knees to her I'm creeping My very life, my life is in her keeping I'm just a prisoner, don't let me be a prisoner You made me a prisoner And you made me love you Take the shackles of love away 'Cause I love you so much now You, you, you, you.......FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
