The Captive

 

I'd like to say that I could 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 walk away

But God and I both know

That it's not true

 

***Someday I'm bound to be free

     And I'll be stronger for whatever I've been through

     But for the moment I remain

     A captive of the human brain

     That blew itself to pieces over you

 

I'm sorry that I put you through

The one thing we couldn't do

Was get along together, or apart

 

I'm thanking you for leaving me

Wiser than I used to be

And just a little harder in the heart

 

***Some day 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

      A captive of the human brain

      That blew itself to pieces over you
