What once was love is now a prison wall (prison wall)

And though I break away to meet you anyhow 
    G                                   C
I have to say please remember when you call

C                                                F
The chains that bind me this heart of mine may never break 
      G                                    C            G 
But they can't stop my heart from wanting you (wanting you)
C                                    F
I know that I should say don't call for both our sakes
