PRISONER

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


    INTRO:  nameless faces
            pass in dull rotation.
            like cars on a highway,
            hello and goodbye they say.
            I was a prisoner
            but I didn't know.
            I was in chains.
            they didn't show.

        I.  I wasn't looking.
            I was at peace.
            I wasn't thinking.
            now thoughts never cease.
            I think of tomorrow
            and how it will be.
            I think of the future
            for her and for me.

   CHORUS:  I was a prisoner
            but I didn't know.
            I was in chains.
            they didn't show.
            I was a prisoner
            and I didn't care.
            but now when I'm with her,
            I'm walking on air.

       II.  when I first saw her,
            I didn't know what lay before me.
            nobody knows
            when love will come along.
            there was a pathway
            but I couldn't tell.
            I couldn't fly
            until I fell.

   CHORUS:  I was a prisoner
            but I didn't know.
            I was in chains.
            they didn't show.
            I was a prisoner
            and I didn't care.
            but now when I'm with her,
            I'm walking on air.

            (repeat chorus)
