The Captive Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

I'd like to say that I can see the target of my destiny .
And that it guided everything I do .
I'd like to think that I could take a drink of you and just walk away but God and I both know it's not true .
Someday I'm bound to be free .
And I'll be ready for whatever life ensues .
But for the moment I remain the captive of the human brain .
That blew it'self to pieces over you .
Sorry that I put you through the one thing that we could not do .
Was get along together or apart .
Thankin' you for leavin' me a stronger man than I used to be .
And just a little harder in the heart .
Someday I'm bound to be free ( you know me ) .
And I'll be ready for whatever road I choose .
But for the moment I remain the captive of the human brain that.
Blew itself to pieces lovin' you .....
