THE BEAUTIFUL PRISON

 

Did someone buy you flowers

On Valentine’s Day

Did someone say I love you

Then turn and walk away

It wasn’t me but I apologize

For all the games we play

In the beautiful…

In the beautiful prison

 

Were you told the path was easy

Looking the way you do

Were you told the doors would open

Like magic for the few

It wasn’t me but I apologize

Some get more than they are due

In the beautiful…

In the beautiful prison

 

We serve our time

We don’t know how long

What was the crime

What did we do wrong

 

Maybe someone tried to warn you

The roads are all dead ends

The worst of our enemies

Can arrive disguised as friends

It wasn’t me but I apologize

No way to make amends

In the beautiful

In the beautiful prison

 

Remember when you promised

Your heart to anyone

Who’d give your tired body

A moment in the sun

It wasn’t me but I apologize

For the damage that was done

In the beautiful

In the beautiful prison

 

We serve our time

We don’t know how long

What was the crime

What did we do wrong
