David Bowie — Prisoner Of Love lyrics

(D.Bowie/T.Sales/H.Sales/R.Gabrels)

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 was a victim of my own self-persecution
I'm a prisoner of love
but I'm coming up for air
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/david-bowie-prisoner-of-love-lyrics.html ]
CHORUS
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
And 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
just stay square

Like a sermon on a blues guitar
Love walked into town
I was drowning so slowly
One step in front of your shadow
I'm a prisoner of love but I'm coming up for air

CHORUS
I smell the sickness sown
in this city
It drives me to hide you, yea,
even deceive you
I'm so afraid for you
that I'll break any thug
that 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
just stay square
