Time Alone

Baby you built this prison,
and I don’t want to be
locked away while you hold the key.
Baby you built this prison,
please set me free.

Most days I’m just sitting here
smelling your perfume in the air
wondering when you’ll be near.
But you’ve been gone so long
and now I’m all alone.

The knocking starts at a quarter to three
always waking me from a real deep sleep
I peek out the window to look below
and never see your footprints in the snow.

Baby you built this prison,
and I don’t want to be
locked away while you hold the key.
Baby you built this prison,
please set me free.

I thought I heard you say my name today.
Just like I thought I heard yesterday.
or any day since you’ve gone away.
I’m in this prison babe
losing my life day by day.

I can hear you knocking babe,
and I can only say
some day I’ll be with you babe,
at Heaven’s bay….
