Hostage
by Sia

Album: 1000 Forms of Fear (2014)
  • You bring me to life then you shut me out
    You keep me silent when I should shout
    You make me cry and you make me come
    You are the cop and I'm on the run

    It all begins with just one kiss
    I'm held hostage by your love
    Put me in cuffs, lock me up
    I'm held hostage by your touch
    This prison is rough but I can't get enough
    The secret life of us keeps me in handcuffs
    Don't lock me up, don't you wanna free us
    I'm held hostage by your love

    Then you let me out and I catch the sun
    You give me a taste of you and no one
    But you always leave, and again I'm alone
    This secret burns but I'm imprisoned

    It all begins with just one kiss
    I'm held hostage by your love
    Put me in cuffs, lock me up
    I'm held hostage by your touch
    This prison is rough but I can't get enough
    The secret life of us keeps me in handcuffs
    Don't lock me up, don't you wanna free us
    I'm held hostage by your love

    Secret life of lovers who have others
    Under the covers
    And while you break my heart
    I'm a criminal in these parts

    It all begins with just one kiss
    I'm held hostage by your love
    Put me in cuffs, lock me up
    I'm held hostage by your touch
    This prison is rough but I can't get enough
    The secret life of us keeps me in handcuffs
    Don't lock me up, don't you wanna free us
    I'm held hostage by your love

    It all begins with just one kiss
    I'm held hostage by your love
    Put me in cuffs, lock me up
    I'm held hostage by your touch
    This prison is rough but I can't get enough
    The secret life of us keeps me in handcuffs
    Don't lock me up, don't you wanna free us
    I'm held hostage by your love
