Lyrics of Prison

I don’t want to feel you
I don’t want to feel you this close
I don’t want to hold you
Do I want hold or let go
I don’t want to fight the night
Inside with you

I'm surrounded by walls
Covered with all your memories
Wish this were solitary no
Walking with me in the halls
So there is no forgetting
I know you’ll never let me

I don’t want to be with you
I don’t want to be without you
I don’t want to be with you
I don’t want to be without you

Prison
I can’t escape from this
Prison
Love is a fo-ol’s prison

I don’t want to need you
I don’t want to seem so desperate
I don’t want tell you
I don’t want to hear it’s useless
I don’t want to fight the night
Inside with you

I'm surrounded by walls
Covered with all your memories
Wish this were solitary

I don’t want to be with you
I don’t want to be without you
I don’t want to be with you
I don’t want to be without you

Prison
I can’t escape from this
Prison
Love is a fo-ol’s prison

Prison
I can’t escape from this
Prison
Love is a fo-ol’s prison
