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

Why should I be a lone soul

 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 prisner of love
For one comand 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 
Up on my knees to her I'm creeping 
My very life is in her keeping 
I'm just a prisoner of love.
