​Prisoner

This song is by James Arthur and appears on the album Back from the Edge (2016).

If I'm underneath the table
Then pour me another drink
Oh, I don't want to remember
I don't even want to think

I'm a slave to my addiction
I'm a hazard to myself
On a fast ride to prediction
Oh, I'm heading straight to hell

When I throw up out your window
You should confiscate my keys
I will drive you up the fucking wall
Is it too late to believe

I tried so hard to change
But the devil locked my door
I'll wear these heavy chains around my neck like a prisoner
I just wanna love
But he won't let me go
Loosen up my chains
Oh, I'm a condemned prisoner

I'm sober in the spotlight
With the city at my feet
But I was a dead man walking
Nothing ever comes for free

So I moved on down to London
Where I traded in my soul
I could not fill my heart
With all those one night stands and gold

So throw me out your mom's house
I've been living there too long
Well she never liked me anyway
'Cause she knows I'm nothing gold

I tried so hard to change
But the devil locked my door
I'll wear these heavy chains around my neck like a prisoner
I just wanna love
But he won't let me go
Loosen up my chains
Oh, I'm a condemned prisoner

I fill my mind to the brink
So I get high, so high and I drink
Suffered enough of the hard parts (?)
(?)
Eh, now I'm at the disco, (?)
'Course I'm on the brink (?)
(?)
Karaoke 'cause I wanna sing
Pour me another drink
It always ends the same
I'm a condemned prisoner

I tried so hard to change
But the devil locked my door
I'll wear these heavy chains around my neck like a prisoner
I just wanna love
But he won't let me go
Loosen up my chains
Oh, I'm a condemned prisoner
