You dont think that Ill be strong enough
No baby now
I wont be a prisoner of your love
(Prisoner of your love)

Maybe you dont think I love you strong enough
But Im not gonna be a prisoner of your love
I know youre lyin, denyin
All of your actions, so listen up
'Cause heres my reaction

Here comes the night
No more living in the shadow of your love
This is my life
Always tried so hard to keep me down but now Ill rise above

Those empty lies
Stop pretending that my accusations, take you by surprise
Ive realized
Now Im ending all the secrecy, I see through your disguise

All the dreams we planned
I believed so I held on
I understand the answer
So when the morning comes, you know that Ill be gone

You dont think that Ill be strong enough
No, baby now
I wont be a prisoner of your love
(Prisoner of your love)

No longer blind
I can focus on deception
Used to keep me by your side
I read your mind

Dont believe its all a mystery
Theres nothing you can hide, its all defined
Theres nothing you can tell me now
To change the way I feel inside

All the dreams we planned
I believed so I held on
I understand, yeah
So when the morning comes, you know that Ill be gone

You dont think that Ill be strong enough
No, baby now
I wont be the prisoner of your love
(Prisoner of your love)

Im just not the girl you thought I was
Not gonna be a prisoner
I wont be the prisoner of your love
Of your love

Dont wanna be a prisoner
I dont wanna be a prisoner, no
Dont wanna be a prisoner
I dont wanna be a prisoner

So if you wanna be my love
You cant be all wild, play up when
You see me and then say, "Mariah I miss you"
Expect me to hug and kiss you?
Dont that dis you?

But I guess Im not the kind of girl you thought I was
Ive had enough of, 'Now Ill see ya later 'cause
Boy make me know that Ill be strong enough
But I wont be a prisoner baby of your love
No more, no more, no more, no more, no more, no more

No no, baby now
I wont be a prisoner of your love
(Prisoner of your love)

Im just not the girl you thought I was
Oh, not gonna be a prisoner
I wont be the prisoner of your love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

Im not one of those girls wholl wait around
Cryin cause you wouldnt take me all over town
You cant do that, Im not a door mat
Youre just a player
Thats not my format, c ya

Prisoner of your love
