My Great Escape    play.gif (982 bytes)

your rain is falling down
upon my window pane
inside my mighty cell
i can see out but it can't get in
constructed carefully
to keep away the world
so i try, but it's hard to let you in

i never thought that i could feel this way again
kick down this prison door and let me out to live and then
i'll make my great escape and leave this fix i'm in
with just the sound
of these chains falling down
my existence turning around
as i make my great escape

so many years gone by
and still the memory
of sitting by myself,
she was gone, and i was empty
i built this fortress to protect what was my heart
so you see, it's so hard to let you in

i never thought that i could feel this way again
break down these prison walls and let me out to live and then
i'll make my great escape and leave this fix i'm in
with just the sound
of these chains falling down
my existence turning around
as i make my great escape

if this is real love
if this is real life
i don't ever want to see this place again

i never thought that i could feel this way again
break down these prison walls and let me out to live and then
i'll make my great escape and leave this fix i'm in
with just the sound
of these chains falling down
my existence turning around
as i make my great escape
