  • Free my heart
    Somebody locked it up
    Still waiting on parole
    I can taste the freedom just outside that door
    Same gray walls
    Same great calls
    Mmm, I know my friends all know
    Can't keep it under control

    I know our love is wrong
    I am a criminal
    Mmm, I am a prisoner
    Mmm, I am a prisoner
    For your love

    There's this one bird
    Lands on the sill beside the bars
    How can something born with wings
    Ever know freedom to truly be free
    Clock don't know what your memories do
    They're stacking up beside the bed
    I count 'em every night inside my head

    If loving you is wrong
    I am a criminal
    Mmm, I am a prisoner
    Mmm, I am a prisoner

    If loving you is wrong
    I am a criminal
    Mmm, I am a prisoner
    Mmm, I am a prisoner
    For your love Writer/s: MICHAEL VIOLA, RYAN ADAMS
