MELISSA ETHERIDGE


The Prison Lyrics

I was high and dry like the Kansas sky
If I ached for any more I knew I'd surely die
Night after night trying to get out of my skin
Day after lonely day
You'd send me back again

I have stood inside this prison
I have touched its stony walls
I know before you try to run
You gotta learn to crawl
I tried to leave it all behind me
I drove all night just to drive all day
But the walls of this prison still surround me
And I can't break away

I held you so close I thought my soul would break
But you were just a ghost
The holiest mistake
I will not be a judge or the one to set you free
I'll just keep on drivin'
And time's a friend to me

I have stood inside this prison
I have touched its stony walls
I know before you try to run
You gotta learn to crawl
I tried to leave it all behind me
I drove all night I drove all day
But the walls of this prison still surround me
And I can't break away

The sentence has been read everything is done
I wish I could say goodbye to you
Wish I could hold the sun
My eyes are dull and burnt
And they lie to me sometimes
Cause I thought I saw you cryin'

I have stood inside this prison
I have touched its stony walls
I know before you try to run
You gotta learn to crawl
I tried to leave it all behind me
In my dreams somehow I got away
But the walls of this prison still surround me
And I can't break away
