I feel like a prisoner
Confined to this space
The memories binding
I still see your face.

I want to forget you
Get you out of my mind
You played me for a fool
You wasted my time.

I want to break free
Take my heart and my soul
But, after all of this time
You won’t let me go.

There in my dreams
And throughout the day
Your presence is haunting
I can’t get away.

This isn’t love
It’s evil and cruel
I need to erase
My memories of you.

Like a prisoner bound
I‘m going to break free
Of the ties that you have
That have held onto me.
