  • Let me see the sunshine
    Let me feel the rain
    Let me go where I want to go
    I want to smell the flowers
    See the dawn again
    Find those friends I used to know

    Well, I spent twenty long years
    In a dirty old prison cell
    I never saw the light of day
    If you could understand
    Oh, that kind of living hell
    That's the price I have to pay
    That's the price I have to pay

    They say I killed a man
    But I never told them why
    So you can guess
    What I've been through
    So for twenty long years
    I've been thinking of that other guy
    And what I saw him do to you
    What I saw him do to you

    Listen here
    So if tomorrow comes
    And I walk outside that door
    Try to understand the strain
    But if you smile that smile
    I know I couldn't ask for more
    I know I'd do it all again
    Yes, I would
    I know I'd do it all again Writer/s: KEN HENSLEY
