Kris Kristofferson — The Prisoner lyrics

Thanking you for openining my eyes so clear sweeping old illusions from my soul
But most of all for turning something simple and sincere
Into somethin' jaded and as jive as rock and roll
Ain't you always looked at lovin' like a four letter word
That I've made up to make you I'll at ease
I fought to free you from your castle of despair till I saw the prisoner wall was me
See the soul who calls itself a prisoner cause it's still too frightened to be free
I feel so much older now and wiser ain't it sad how lonesome that can be
[ guitar ]
Ain't you always looked...
