Steel Bars

In the night I hear you speak

Turn around, you're in my sleep

Feel your hands inside your soul

You're holding on and won't let go

.

I've tried running but there's no escape

Can't bend them, and (I know) I just can't break these...

.

Steel bars, wrapped all around me

I've been your prisoner since the day you found me

I'm bound forever, till the end of time

Steel bars wrapped around this heart of mine

.

Trying hard to recognize

See the face behind the eyes

Feel your haunting ways like chains

'Round my heart they still remain

.

I'm still running, but there's nowhere to hide

My love for you has got me locked up inside these...

.

Steel bars, wrapped all around me

I've been your prisoner since the day you found me

I'm bound forever, till the end of time

Steel bars wrapped around this heart of mine

.

And with every step I take

Every desperate move I make

It's clear to me

What can all my living mean

When time itself is so obscene

When time itself don't mean a thing

I'm still loving you

.

Steel bars, wrapped all around me

I've been your prisoner since the day you found me

I'm bound forever, till the end of time

Steel bars wrapped around this heart of mine

.
