Open Wide These Prison Doors Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Tied by love to you but I was tied too strong
Still I'm afraid of knowin' what leavin' means
I know I lived for you in all I tried to do
You were the keeper of my dreams

Open wide these prison doors, take these chains from 'round my heart
Make believe that I'm no more, pay no mind when I depart
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away
If you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free

You were always caring, always warm and kind
But that was long ago when love was blind
And I don't want to hurt you the way that I've been hurt
But if I stay I'll lose my mind

Open wide these prison doors, take these chains from 'round my heart
Make believe that I'm no more, pay no mind when I depart
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away
And if you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free

Time is always moving while we're here standing still
I'll love you even though I'm leaving and maybe I always will

Open wide these prison doors, take these chains from 'round my heart
Make believe that I'm no more, pay no mind when I depart
Need to find another place where love is not just tossed away
And if you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free

If you really care for me, open wide these prison doors and set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free
