When I walked fourteen miles on my thirty-fifth birthday
How I wished I was walking home to you
And the heat from the pavement wore out these prison shoes
And the memories of the love that we knew
Fifteen years of my life are gone
And every hour seems a hundred hours long

But I'm still a prisoner You've got my heart behind bars
The way you left me it was criminal
And now I don't know where to start

When I was a younger man I kind of lost my way
And I found out that justice could be swift
I dreamed of my freedom on this clear and sunny day
Now I realize that freedom is a gift
No one wants you when you lose
And every thing comes around
So be careful what you choose

But I'm still a prisoner You've got my heart behind bars
The way you left me it was criminal
And now I don't know where to start
'Cause I'm still a prisoner
A prisoner of this heart

All I have is a picture of you and me
All I have is a memory
Call me evil, call me bad
Call me anything just take me back
