A Prisoner Says His Piece

Lyrics: Jeff Mattson
Music: Jeff Mattson

I can't even look away
You're afraid my hands will stray
There's no getting very far from you
You've got me on a real short leash
Never very far from reach
There's no getting very far from you

Chorus
But it's true (yeah it's true), baby what you do (yeah it's true)
Yeah, it's true (yeah it's true), baby what you do
Like a monkey in the zoo
A prisoner of love for you
Your lack of trust in me is peeking through

When you call me on the phone
I better pray to God I'm home
There's no getting very far from you
When I go out to walk the cat
You're waiting on that welcome mat
There's no getting very far from you

[chorus]

Judging by the fits I've seen
Your favorite color must be green
There's no getting very far from you
This ball and chain is getting old
A time to play, a time to fold
There's no getting very far from you

[chorus]
[chorus]
Your lack of trust in me is peeking through
Your lack of trust in me
Your lack of trust in me
Your lack of trust in me is peeking through

[chorus]
[chorus]
Your lack of trust in me is peeking through
Your lack of trust in me
Your lack of trust in me
Your lack of trust in me is peeking through
