Prisoner Of Love Lyrics

by David Bowie

Don't look back
Whatever it takes to save your life
I've believed I belonged to you for a long time
And my heart says no, no one but you

Like a rescue on a darkened street
Love walked into town
I, I, I was a victim of my own self-persecution
I'm a prisoner of love but I'm coming up for air

Now don't be fooled by fools who promise you
The world and all that glitters more fool you

I'm such a hungry man that I beg you
Over and over and over and over
I mi-mi-mi, I might take any highway
To be there with you

Even the best men shiver in their beds
I'm loving you above everything I have
I'm a prisoner of love, I'm a prisoner of love
Just stay square

Like a sermon on blues guitar
Love walked into town I was drowning so slowly
Wouldn't step in front of your shadow
I'm a prisoner of love but I'm coming up for air

Now don't be fooled by fools who promise you
The world and all that glitters more fool you

I smell the sickness sown in this city
It drives me to hide you, yeah, even deceive you
I'm so afraid for you that
I'll break any thug who maps out your passage to ruin

Even the best men shiver in their beds
I'm loving you above everything I have
I'm a prisoner of love, I'm a prisoner of love
Just stay square

Take care, take care
I'm a prisoner of love
Just stay square

Just stay square
Stay out of the school and get 'em
Just stay square
I've seen the best man of my generation

Lie down insanity, incriminatory, just stay square
Just stay square, just stay square
Don't look back, beautiful soul
Don't look back, beautiful soul
