Someone who can't be faithful
Knows that I have to be
Wonder if I am wrong to give her my loyalty

Too weak to break the chains that bind me
I need no shackles to remind me

For one comand I stand and wait now

From one who's master of my Fate 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
Up on my knees to her I'm creeping
My very life is in her keeping
I'm just a prisoner of love. 
Love.
